Description: Cyber blades is a game where you fight back by slicing the enemy projectile with a melee weapon in a synthwave setting. It provides a unique experience that allows you to face hundreds of enemy archers with melee weapons. Slash arrows more powerfully, and get a higher score by cutting in a row!

Review: ‘Cyber Blades’ is a sword-swinging action game in which you have to swipe away at arrows fired by the various ninja-style enemies. With its synth-wave style graphics and sounds it certainly fits in with the ’80s vibe, but sadly it is the action that lets the game down. There is no beat-mapping here, it is just random action in which you can listen to one of two tracks, 3 difficulty levels and that is about it. If you play a single game here you have seen all there is to see and do. Sure, you can ramp up the difficulty and maybe chase your own score, but nothing that is going to hold your interest for very long.

I suppose the good news is the game doesn’t cost a lot, so those who are willing to endure the same gameplay loop over and over will get their money’s worth here. For me it is the lack of any variety that puts me off recommending it. I don’t expect much from a game that only costs £3.99 and the end T-Rex boss fight was cool, but I just didn’t enjoy it quite enough to give it the thumbs up. But as with any review, it is just a personal opinion and might not reflect your own.
