Act-Fancer: Cybernetick Hyper Weapon (アクトフェンサー?) is a 1989 horizontally scrolling shoot 'em up arcade game developed and published by Data East. It features a cyborg battling against alien creatures, while collecting power-ups and defeating bosses to advance levels.

Power-ups

Blue orb - powers up fencer 1 evolution; collect five from the "Cis" form (named below) to get the ultimate form "Zakros". As you evolve, you will need to continually collect these to maintain form. If the "evo timer" (not pictured in game) runs out before you collect a blue orb, you will devolve 1 level.

Red orb - increases time on evo timer (mentioned above); collect these to prolong your current form until you are able to collect an additional blue orb to evolve.

Forms

Initial form "Nuts" - fires forward; you will revert to this form upon being hit by an enemy. If you take another hit from an enemy in this form, you will lose 1 life and start the stage over from either the beginning or a midpoint.

First form "Cis" - fires two shots aimed at the ground which will ricochet and damage/destroy enemies.

Second form "Chiffon" - fires three projectiles at the ground which explode on impact and jet flames high above the ground.

Third form "Ickx" - fires five projectiles in a fan-like pattern from above the "fencer" (main character)

Fourth form "Benebu" - fires fives projectiles from the rear of the fencer which fly forward and deal damage to enemies.

Fifth form "Ares" - fires a projectile diagonally in the air which then fires projectiles in 8 directions.

Sixth form "Zakros" - fires missiles into the air and fires homing projectiles at enemies.
