(Cross Wiber - Cyber Combat Police)

Cross Wiber is a side scrolling action/beat'm up game by Face. The diabolical Dr. Nozumi is trying to conquer the earth and the armed Doma, his army, is now attacking planet Earth. The galaxy police force has uncovered Doma's evil plans and has decided to send Cross Wiber to destroy their hideout. "Charge, destroy the doma !!" shouts the game's title screen. Cyber Combat Police is a classic beat them up and the player takes control of a human fighter wearing civilian clothes who can later transform into a more powerful super-hero with a metal armor. Three weapons can also be used: blue (laser beam), green (boomerang) and red (sword).

Game ID: FA02-008

TRIVIA

Cross Wiber was released on December 21, 1990 in Japan for 6700 Yen.

This game follows Japanese's Tokusatsu series, popular TV shows where the main character, or main characters in many cases, could turn into super heroes (Ultraman, LiveMan etc...). The game is definitively inspired by great series such as Space Sheriff Gavan (Uchuu Keiji Gavan), Sharivan, Choujinki Metalder or Kamen Riders where the main heroes wear metal armors similar to the ones seen in Cyber Combat Police.
