You need to be careful as the Strider will throw rings at you while you are running through them.
After the colour of the ring changes from red to black, you will be able to run through them and once you have covered them, they will change into blue.
If you cover all the rings then they will change their colour to white and you will be able to move on to the next one.
The primary goal is to destroy the three rings that protect the core of the Strider.
After you have destroyed those three rings, you will be able to directly attack the core located on a platform in the centre.
This will destroy the entire structure causing the tower to collapse and resulting in the defeat of the Strider. As a reward for your efforts, you will receive one Portal Gear for your efforts which can be used to enter Cyberspace.
That’s it, now go ahead and defeat the Strider by running around its rings!
