Cybernator, or Assault Suits Valken, is one of the best run and gun platformers on the Super Nintendo/Super Famicom. Originally developed by NCS Corp and published in Japan by Masiya, Konami picked it up for international release. A remake, simply titled Walken, was released for the PlayStation 2 in 2004. You can also get it on the Wii Virtual Console. This particular ad originates from the United Kingdom, where it was one of the last games to use the Palcom Software brand that Konami used to bypass Nintendo’s publishing restrictions.
