In the year 2002 AD, incurable diseases and unseen raise in criminal activities have brought the human society onto the verge of collapse. By that time, genetic engineering became so highly developed that it was finally possible to produce cybernetic organisms functioning like humans for all purposes. However, since the authorities were hesitant in their treatment of the cyborgs, they began joining criminal organizations, which used them as formidable soldiers in their battles against the Establishment. Eventually, a mercenary organization known as Blade Warrior was hired to confront them. Sou, one of the youngest members of the team, is sent to deal with a gang of marauding cyborgs in the city's shady area, without realizing that this mission will be just the beginning of a dangerous journey.
Zyclunt is a side-scrolling action game. The player controls Sou as he advances through linear stages, fighting enemies in his way. Sou is armed with a sword and can jump and duck as well. The game has beat-em-up elements in that it only allows the player character to advance to the next segment of the area if all the enemies have been defeated. Ranged weapons come in limited quantities and must be picked up in the stages. Most of the enemies in the game are cyborgs, robots, and machines.
Zyclunt a fun anime side-scrolling platformer that not many people have heard about, mostly due to it being distributed only in shareware channels. The game is set in a dystopian future: in the year 2002 AD, planet earth was on the edge of social and economic breakdown due to incurable diseases, drugs, crimes, etc. Cyborgs and Bioroids were being exploited by the crime lords in their fight against the Establishment. You are Sou, member of Zyclunt-- a band of retired and discredited soldiers paid by the Establishment to undertake covert missions. After being drafted into the service, you finally are assigned your first mission as a marauding band of Mechadine had been sighted in D-C-14 district, where the regular meeting of the security council was taking place....
Gameplay is standard platform fare, but with excellent graphics and animation that make Zyclunt stand out from other shareware titles. The various kinds of robots and Cyborgs you encounter look like they are ripped straight out from popular Japanese comics (manga)-- it's a lot of fun just watching their cool designs and attacks. There are several cutscenes between missions that advance the story, and those are also very well done. In short, if you are a fan of futuristic action games with a lot of robots (e.g. Mega Man), you will have a lot of fun with Zyclunt even if the odds seem impossible at times. Highly recommended!
