CyberHeroes Arena DX from Ratalaika Games, 9Ratones and RainForest Games is an auto-battler/twin-stick shooter with a quick Platinum. As this action game begins, you’ll choose the robot with which you’ll battle – you only have a single choice at the beginning, and more will unlock as you play through CyberHeroes Arena DX.
The gameplay is very simple: it’s a twin-stick-ish shooter in which you move your robot using the left analog stick and aim with the right one. Firing is done automatically. It takes a little bit to get used to because firing is slightly delayed when you are reloading and dependent on the skills you have purchased between each match. You have to survive each wave for its duration, which begins at 15 seconds and increases quickly. If your robot dies during a match, and since this game is a roguelite, you’ll be back at the beginning.
In each match, you’ll earn money by finishing various missions, such as, for example, getting rid of a set number of enemies or accumulating a set number of coins. Money is used between each match to upgrade your robot with different attacking skills. I liked how there were more skills available than you can actually purchase on a single robot, so the next game can be slightly different, giving some replay value to this title.
I liked the pixelated art style, but there’s not much that can be said in the audio department since there’s a track for the game’s title screen, then a second one for the menu between matches, and finally, a third one for the actual combat. I would definitely have liked more audio variety!
Since this is a Ratalaika Games release, you can expect to earn a new Platinum trophy by playing through this one. And since the game is Cross-Buy between the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions – with separate trophy lists – you can earn two new Platinum trophies. The trophy requirements are quite easy since you need to at least wave five and upgrade your robot between matches. The last one you’ll likely get is for killing 2000 enemies, which requires a bit of grinding. You can check this CyberHeroes Arena DX Trophy Guide for some extra help.
CyberHeroes Arena DX is simple in its essence, but it works. I liked playing through this game twice – since it is Cross-Buy PS4 and PS5 release and offers a Platinum for each version of the game. With its budget $4.99 price, this one is easy to recommend to trophy hunters.
