Get ready for a retro action-platformer from indie developer Aarne Hunziker with Cyber Shadow.

Play as Shadow, a cybernetic ninja who must navigate the ruins of Mekacity. The world has been taken over by robots, and it is up to Shadow to figure out why. He must slash and dash through hordes of techno horrors, leap past traps and other hazards, and unlock the secrets of his ninja powers by rescuing the other members of his clan, all while taking on giant bosses across multiple levels of action.

Cyber Shadow promises authentic, 8-bt style side scrolling action with hand crafted sprites and accurate pixel aesthetics, plus some multi-layered parallax scrolling thrown in for good measure.

Cyber Shadow is available on PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
