Assault Suits Valken is the Japanese version of Cybernator, a game that Konami brought over to America. The game is a sidescrolling shooter similar to Contra, but here you pilot a huge Mech named [s]Gundam[s] Valken. The main difference between this version and the US one is the story - a lot of things were removed by Konami for no reason, and the game paused itself while you received instructions during a mission in the US version. Valken doesn’t do that, which may be a disadvantage - particularly against the last boss, who you can’t attack until he shuts up. But he can attack you! Yep, unfair, but that’s life.
And here it is, the unedited, uncensored version of Cybernator! There are still some random text display issues, and you can’t change Jake’s name, but other than that it’s fully playable!

User Review Information
Solid effort, but excessively glitchyReviewed By: Palazzo on 18 Oct 2015
The translated script is very well-written (barring some unfortunate typos late in the game), and certainly reads easier than the game’s original English script, but unfortunately the patch is very glitchy, to the point that it severely impedes play. The game frequently crashes in the final stages (typically during the bosses of the final stages), and in one segment in the penultimate level, a corridor containing an item is blocked off with garbage tiles, forcing the player to reset if they happen to enter the corridor from below.
Version 1.00 Recommended - No
