HIGH-TECH TANKS MEET FULL BLOWN, FIRST PERSON FIREPOWER.

Cybersled catapults you to a future where tank warfare resembles Formula One racing on an Arena Football field. Eleven armored battlesleds play hid-and-seek, then seek-and-destroy; each with enough weaponry to take out the Soviet Union. Their sole purpose? Blow you to scrap. Blink, and you’re Cyber-Dead.

  • 11 tanks with unique battle characteristics. How are the shields? Choose wrong, and your battlesled doubles as a really expensive coffin.
  • 8 incredible battle zones – know the turf or get buried in it
  • Two modes of play – you against 11 computer tank terrorists or go two player and incinerate friends and family
  • Two views to a kill – inside your tank or directly behind it
  • Three atmospheres for combat – clear sky, night time or fog bound for less radar detection
  • Texture mapped graphics for the ultimate in detail and raging realism

There are no known Variants for this game.

  • Several of the Namco launch games had variant covers, so to speak. On the front would be the real cover (for example, Tekken’s group shot), and on the inside would be a photograph of a man dressed to match the game. Cybersled for some reason has no true real picture; both sides are of the dressed up man.
  • The original arcade version was a huge sit-down experience that used Twin Sticks as its control set-up.
  • The game offers two visual modes: Real and Original. Original refers to the arcade version’s flat shaded polygons. Real is basically just textures and smaller details added to the game.
