The sounds in the game are great, with some really nice background music thrown into the game. A few sounds are missing from the arcade game, but they aren't too missed. The gameplay is what matters, and the Lynx version of this game pulls it off with style...
Before I go on, I know that I am influenced from having played the Lynx version first. In the arcade version, turning gives you a nice turning graphic. The Lynx game simply isn't powerful enough to do the same nice turning things, and instead you just move 90 degrees all at the same time. If you start by playing in this way, I doubt you'll miss the turning animation. If you have played the arcade game for a long time though, it is missed.
So anyway, about the gameplay, you must make it through lots of different mazes, destroying the evil Xybots along the way. The game starts off relatively easy, but the difficulty goes up and soon it is a challenge to make it through the mazes alive. You can always bring in backup by ComLynxing with a friend. This makes the game even more fun by allowing you and your partner to split the Xybots exterminating responsibilities.
Overall, Xybots is a great title for the Lynx, and one of the
easiest and cheapest titles to get. Don't let it slip by you!
