Cyber Shadow isn’t afraid to just be what it is: an unapologetic, retro-inspired action game. Steady upgrades mean you’ll be introduced to new mechanics for most of the adventure, keeping things interesting all the way. An old-school challenge awaits, and while it’s mostly a fair fight, checkpoints can be a little far apart, and some bosses might stop you in your tracks. Still, if you’re looking for a rock solid side-scroller, this is absolutely worth your time.

Cyber Shadow pays homage to classic ninja games such as Shinobi or Ninja Gaiden. It has a great “improved” 8 bit style, huge difficulty levels, and a satisfying 2D platform and combat gameplay.

A glorious love letter to retro ninja action, Cyber Shadow is a must for fans of high-speed fun and delicious 1990s cheesy camp.
