The game will be released by Drageus Games and was developed by Artur Games. It's already available on Steam, with an overall rating of 'Very Positive' based on a total of 425 reviews — not too shabby!
Here's a rundown from the game's official Steam page:
Super Cyborg is an old school non-stop hardcore run’n’gun action game! You are an elite battle cyborg who is sent in to investigate a series of anomalies on a mysterious island. The merciless and powerful alien known only as the ‘Xirxul life form’ has been awakened by unwitting scientists and now: all humanity is in danger! Shoot, run and jump through 7 levels filled with endless hordes of biological terrors and some of the fiercest boss fights in any title. Destroy everything that moves on this island, because if it moves- it kills!
Are you ready to save the Earth?
It certainly seems like it will be a nice alternative for those looking for that 'classic' Contra gameplay. As for the Contra series itself, Konami's most recent effort with Contra: Rogue Corps was met with overwhelmingly negative reception, receiving a 4/10 on our review.
At least we got the Contra Anniversary Collection, eh?
