The bio-droid, Hopy-ONE, was created in a laboratory Professor Jonathan Silt had set up in 2013 to research the F.L.V. (Fast Line Virus), the deadliest strain of mutating virus in the galaxy. Silt was infected and cryogenically frozen in 2026. Hopy-ONE's mission was to collect samples of the virus to aid in the production of a vaccine. The fate of Silt, who waits in cryosleep, and the fate of the entire universe, rests with Hopy-ONE.
Bio-droid Hopy-ONE must collect samples of the F.L.V. at each level before moving on to the next. On each level bio-droid may move left/right, stretch and jump by shrinking and releasing itself. Also bio-droid may shoot in horizontal plane to eliminate another droids moving and shooting on the level, and extend tentacles (also morph).
A strangely appealing, unique action/puzzle hybrid, Cyborg: Hopy-ONE is reminiscent of Epyx' classic Spiderbot. You are a pogo stick-like robot who must navigate dozens of levels to get out. You can bounce, or you can grow taller, and then make a rope so you can get across things. It's one of those games where you get to see the entire level on one little board, and you have to collect objects from the board and then move on to another level. It sometimes requires thinking to see where the exit is and plan your route, but it's quite simple. One of the less successful games from Webfoot, but not for lack of personality that permeates all its games. Worth a try if you like, say, James Pond 2 (where you can also stretch your neck up), but it won't hold your attention for very long... once you finish the first few levels, you'll have seen everything.
