Cyber-Lip[a] is a horizontally scrolling, side-view platformer shoot 'em up (this combination is sometimes referred to as "run and gun") arcade game released by SNK in 1990 for the SNK Neo-Geo MVS. Players control Rick and/or Brook, two human veteran soldiers, who are sent by an unspecified "federal government" into combat on a last-ditch attempt to save Earth from a malfunctioning military supercomputer in charge of all military androids.

A handful of members from Irem developed this title and later went on to create Metal Slug.

Gameplay[edit]

Gameplay consists of battling through large numbers of enemies, collecting power-ups and defeating several end-of-stage bosses. This makes it comparable to the likes of Metal Slug or Contra in terms of gameplay.

Release[edit]

The game was later ported over for the Neo Geo CD system, in 1995.[2] The CD featured improved voice acting and added a short introduction to the game explaining the plot.

Reception[edit]

On release, Famicom Tsūshin scored the Neo Geo version of the game a 23 out of 40.[3]
