CyberDome! is a single player shoot ’em up that was originally released as
shareware but has since been made available as freeware.
All the action in the game takes place inside a dome in cyber-space, hence the
name. The player takes on the role of a trainee cyber assassin for an unnamed
mega corporation. The task is to survive the eight training missions and play
through the subsequent sixty-four levels. The player starts with five
lives/ships and additional ones can be awarded as the score increases, power-
ups left behind when enemy ships are destroyed can be collected. Although this
is primarily a a shoot ’em up game there is a strategy element as the order in
which the enemy ships are destroyed can be important.
The game is entirely keyboard controlled, it uses the space bar to fire and
the numeric keypad to steer the ship. It has an auto-targetting feature which
not only locates the nearest / next enemy but points the ship towards it.
There are first, second, third and overhead points of view.
The game can be played full screen or in a window, it has sound effects and a
soundtrack, and a high score table.
