It’s not a game that demands hours of your time at once, nor one that has a vast amount of content to keep you busy in the long term — but it is a game that is fun to boot up once in a while when you fancy some straightforward arcade action that rewards you with the very pleasant sight of some awesome, kick-ass military and mecha girls for doing well.
For a homage to a game from the 80's, faithfully recreating a gameplay system that was invented 40 years ago, Bishoujo Battle Cyber Panic! feels like a modern, funky game. The anime aesthetic is gorgeous and current, although perhaps a little too safe given that Azur Lane: Crosswave borrows from the same aesthetic while upping the fan service ante significantly. However, Cyber Panic! also has plenty of replay value and an excellent leaderboard system for such a minimal price. Most compelling of all, though, is the fact that the game is an uncomplicated and well-done take on Qix. Qix the kind of game that doesn't need developers to mess around with it, and to the great credit of Bishoujo Battle Cyber Panic!'s developer, they've let the base game stand for itself.
Bishoujo Battle Cyber Panic! offers us a type of game highly known and cloned to satiety since that distant Qix, but no less valid even today. Its 50 levels and its arcade-like rejubality, as well as its very reasonable price, make it a great option to spend dead time in the most entertaining way. Technically content, it does not need more, and its only obvious drawback is the absence of a multiplayer mode both local and online, as well as a music that ends up being too repetitive and pounding.
