Unfortunately, we did not find an official alternative on Android of what would be a Blade Runner to use, although on consoles there is the title Cybepunk 2077 that already looks a lot like the production of Ridley Scott. However, there are several options to download on our phones and that are very reminiscent of all the characteristics that a cyberpunk work brings together.
Deus Ex: The Fall
Deus Ex: The Fall is the first major action RPG adventure based on the Deus Ex universe for mobile phones and tablets. The game places its action right after the events narrated in the novel Deus Ex: The Icarus Effect. Too bad it is no longer in the Play Store, although we have its APK to enjoy it.
I Have no Mouth and I Must Scream
It is a classic adventure from the nineties and inspired by Harlan Ellison’s short novel of the same name and in which a computer, AM, has wiped humanity from the face of the earth except for 5 people who it has been kept alive and under torture for over a century due to its immortal status.
Whispers of a Machine
It’s a graphic adventure point and click Sci-fi story that tells the story of Vera, a cyber-enhanced detective in a post-AI world, who investigates a series of murders and uncovers a conflict over forbidden technology. Whispers of a Machine guarantees players a video game where they will have to research, gather information and solve puzzles with multiple solutions while at the same time being immersed in a world with a beautiful pixelated design.
Deus Ex GO
It is one of the cyberpunk games starring the protagonist of the Deus Ex series, Adam Jensen. Following the style of games such as Lara Croft Go and Hitman Go, the game combines terminal hacking, stealth, augmentations and combat with a slow, tactical turn-based development that abounds in puzzles.
A 2D action adventure in which we must infiltrate a mega-corporation using our technological arsenal. Power-edged weapons and rainy skyscrapers filled with neon signs in perfect Japanese are the order of the day here. If you like the Deus Ex saga and cyperpunk anime, there is a lot to scratch around here.
Tech futures with dystopian reminiscences are always associated with the virtual tech universe. Hackers propose us to become one of them while we move through virtual networks whose nodes and infrastructure are represented visually. An online game where we must defend our own core and dispute resources with the rest of the players.
Futuristic vehicles that leave a trail of light in megacity suburbs are another classic stamp of the genre. Chrome Death is a cyberpunk arcade game that recovers this type of scene in which we must escape from the threats of the police while they try to cut us off. The problem is that, unlike the blade runner transports, these here still don’t fly.
Again we return to Asian cyberpunk in terms of extreme technicality in the military field. Neon Drifters is a endless runner in which we control a “rebel” mounted on his flying vehicle who must overcome enemy obstacles in an endless escape.
The film Akira laid the foundations for many aesthetic resources typical of the genre. In fact, motivated chases on huge highways are one of its main rubrics. Vektor recovers those fierce battles between Kaneda and Tetsuo with rival gangs in this game of skill where we must stay on our motorcycle for as long as possible.
Running through huge skyscrapers in majestic cities of great verticality is what RetroShifter offers us. We are a kind of extreme parkour runner with a special device on the wrist with four positions, each of them of a different color, which will allow us to pass through safety lasers of the same hue. The need to jump or duck adds to the control of this device. Frantic after a few strides.
