ESWAT game comparison

Cyber Police: ESWAT is a 1989 scrolling shooter, developed and published by SEGA and first released in the Arcade.

ESWAT’s gameplay is similar to Sega’s own Shinobi, as the player has the ability to jump up and down between platforms.

Your goal of each of the game’s 15 stages is to find and arrest a specific wanted criminal, who is usually fought at the end of the stage as a boss.

Duke is initially armed with only a single-shot pistol, but upon arresting the first three criminals and being promoted to ESWAT, Duke is equipped with a Power Suit with a mounted machine gun for the rest of the game.

The suit also has access to limited-use special weapons which can be found within stages. However, both of Duke’s standard weapons require ammunition, without which the player can only attack with a kick. Additional ammunition can be found in boxes throughout each stage.

Computer and Video Games called the game a cross between NARC and RoboCop, but wrote that it “doesn’t quite have the flair of either”. Rating the game at 76% overall, they recommended only playing Cyber Police if they were bored with the two other games. Bit harsh?
