This title was reskinned and released outside of Japan as Cyborg Hunter.
Year is 2242. Monstrous "Youma" (which translates to "Devil" or "Demon"), under control of their violent leader, Vipron want to take over the universe. Players will assume control of Ryo Hibiki a bounty hunter who managed to infiltrate the headquarters and preparing for the final showdown with Vipron. He is assisted by Memory Gene who will provide support during the operation. Ryo must attack different locations within the Cyborg Fortress and acquire weapons and equipment that will help him survive this tough mission.
Two other Borgmen, Anice Farm and Chuck Sweagar, appear in the ending.
Chouon Senshi Borgman is a side scrolling action game. Button one attacks with selected weapon while button two jumps. Players can access inventory screen by pressing any button on the second controller.
A large status screen covers the upper part of the gameplays screen. A pseudo-3D screen on the left part allows players to detect enemies from afar. Status screen also gives a rough map of the area.
In each area, players must defeat a number of "Chief Cyborgs" in order to proceed. Chief Cyborgs are depicted in white while regular cyborgs are red.
In addition to the new weapons and equipment, players can collect power ups to recover life or psycho power meters.
Cyborg Fortress is divided into four sections and each of these has one or more areas needed to be completed. Getting necessary Key Card from the boss of the section will allow characters to get to the next block. Vipron is located in Area G of Section 4. Some bosses can only be defeated with a certain weapon.
Players can revisit each location but once the necessary items is obtained, there is little reason to do so as the game is quite linear and playing the areas in order is the only way to proceed.
