Description

Cybermorph was the first game released for Atari's Jaguar console. It's a 3D sci-fi shoot-'em-up. The story goes like this: The evil Pernitia Empire is swallowing up the galaxy's planets left and right. What's worse, the resistance forces have had their secret weapons stolen from them and put into pods spread out on many different planets. You must pilot the T-Griffon morphing attack craft to each planet and recover the pods to stop the Pernitians.

So, in each planet, or level, you must collect a certain number of pods and make it to the exit before the enemies shoot you down. Fortunately, there are power-ups that can strategically enhance the T-Griffon's offensive capabilities. After clearing 8 planets, you take on a boss creature/ship before moving on to the next sector. There are 4 levels like this to clear, each with progressively increasing difficulty.

Trivia

Release history

Cybermorph had two releases. The original pack-in was a 2 MB cart (copyright 1993 on the label). Later pack-in versions used a 1 MB cart to cut costs (copyright 1994 on the label). The standalone box version is also the 1 MB cart.

The primary differences between the two are that the 1 MB version omits a morphing intro and endgame sequence. The dialogue for your computer co-pilot is also cut down:

 2 MB Cybermorph                1 MB Cybermorph
