The game can be played in one of three difficulty settings: Run’n’gun, Cybertrash, and Tactician. Run’n’gun is the easier one. Enemies will have low armor and will rarely attack you, but they will yield fewer experience points – more on these in a bit. Cybertrash is the normal difficulty setting, balanced to offer a challenging experience that does not feel overwhelming. The last option is Tactician, which bumps up the challenge. It’s a hardcore mode in which enemies have a lot of armor and are very aggressive, but they give you lots of experience points.

You’ll control your character with the left analog stick or the D-Pad, jumping with the X or L2 buttons and shooting at enemies with the Square or R2 buttons. The L1 button can be used for a slide. If you jump after sliding, you’ll be able to jump higher and also clear longer gaps. There’s also the option of sliding by pressing down on the left analog stick or the D-Pad and the X button. You can change between weapons by pressing the Triangle button. Light weapons will take up slot one, while heavy weapons will take up slot two.

As you destroy enemies, Janet will gain experience points. Once you’ve obtained enough, you’ll level up and receive one skill point. This will allow you to select from a series of upgrades at the support terminal. These include increasing fire rate and accuracy, jump height and slide speed, lowering the chance of taking damage from bullets, boosting how many credits you receive from destroying objects, or improving your hacking level so that you can open more weapon boxes. Credits can be used to purchase ammo or to instantly level up at some special chests.

Trophy-wise, this game has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy on PlayStation 4. The list is split into 7 Silver trophies and 9 Gold trophies. The objectives to complete include completing the first two missions in the game, beating all of the bosses, getting your first upgrade, and getting the endings that the game has to offer.

Cybertrash STATYX Review - 3

Cybertrash STATYX is a 2D cyberpunk action platformer that showed potential on PS4, but it ended up falling short. The gameplay loop is not engaging enough, and it all feels too samey without enough elements to differentiate one level from the next. Having to slide to be able to clear well over half of the jumps in the game is also tedious. Cybertrash STATYX is out on PlayStation 4 with a $9.99 price tag.
