NOTE: If you do not have Microsoft's Direct X drivers installed

on your system, you will not hear any sounds in this demo. The

full release version of CyberStorm will install these needed

drivers automatically and you will be able to hear our full sound

and music once you install the release version of the game. If you

have access to the internet, you can download these drivers from

the demo page at HTTP://WWW.SIERRA.COM or from Microsoft directly.

To play this demo, you need only select one of the three sample

missions from the main menu. You will then be given a simple

briefing and be placed directly into battle. There, you will

see your force of Hercs (the giant fighting machines you will

command in this game) and Bioderms (the pilots who drive those

Hercs). Exploration of the terrain will reveal enemies.

The particular world in this demonstration has high cliffs. If

you have trouble finding a unit, it may be behind a hill. You

can rotate the battlefield using the icons at the upper-left of

the battle interface. Feel free to view the battlefield at any

angle and height you choose.

While exploring the demonstration version of CyberStorm, use the

right mouse button to click on items you'd like more information

on. Though the game manual and help files are unavailable on the

demo version, the full right-click help IS available. It will

help guide you though the demonstration.

Keep in mind: This is a tiny demonstration of a large game. Many

forms of special effects, world types, sounds, animations, unit types

and background music are not included in this demo. Also, a large

portion of the strategy involved in CyberStorm is planning the type

of forces you purchase to take into a particular battle. You may

find screen snapshots of this aspect of the game at the Sierra website.

In the full release version of CyberStorm, there are 30 different

Bioderm pilots available, 8 different Hercs, 70 different weapons,

over 30 different internal component systems, and 23 different

worlds to challenge. With a mission generator as part of the game,

no two missions will ever be alike. With almost limitless

combinations of weapons and systems, you can play through a

campaign of CyberStorm, and then start another to enjoy a

completely new experience.

Though this demo does not allow you to sample the multiplayer

capability of CyberStorm, you can play the release version over a

modem between two human players, or with up to eight players on a

local-area network. The mission generator puts YOU in control,

allowing you to construct any mission type you wish for a

multiplayer game... from competitive "smashfests" to cooperative

missions where you and your friends are trying to destroy an enemy

base.

To obtain a full release version of CyberStorm, you can visit your

local retailer, or order directly from Sierra Direct at

We hope you enjoy this sample of MissionForce: CyberStorm.
