Cyborg Michael Berlyn / Sentient Software / Softsmith Software 1982

Cyborg is an imaginatively written, all-text science fiction adventure game. You must guess the object, which doesn't become clear until late in the game following a surprising arcade-like (and very effective) Lo-Res graphics interlude. At the outset, all you know is that you are a Cyborg, half-human, half-robot. Your mission is to find a source of energy to keep you alive. The game uses a text parser, except for character interaction, during which you choose a question from a predetermined list. Having an unusually cohesive plot, the game is more like a novel than an adventure. Cyborg is big, similar in size to Michael Berlyn's first game, OO-Topos. He's been involved with many adventure games including writing some of Infocom's games. There are 130 mappable locations, including two maze-like areas.
