"Songs are how feelings should sound like"

Reviewed by / Nov 22, 2013

A musical, sci-fi themed, game

When it seemed that music games where outdated, Cytus showed up, patching the usual shortages of the genre it belongs. Not only gameplay goes a little bit further than awaiting notes to fall at the bottom of the screen, but also it brings some fresh air in the form of a plot about robots and feelings. By the way, Cytus is a place where robots stored human emotions converted to music in order to keep alive what mankind was. It may not be a big deal by itself, but combined with the precious backgrounds and the fast beat trance music it creates somehow an atmosphere.

One of the most important features of this game is, unexpectedly, difficulty levels, because higher difficulties are, literally, unbeatable. Therefore, first at all, try to find a difficulty level you feel comfortable with. Then try to tap on the notes when the timeline is more centered the better. Know that it's tricky even if you have played this kind of games before. The only remarkable flaws are that there's no option to create tracks based on your own music library, and there isn't any way to play versus or co-op.

Game includes a hundred songs, compiled into a story mode. Upgrading it to premium doesn't release new songs, but gets you rid of the cooldown time to replay a song instead.

This game is definitively worth of giving it a go, both by newcomers to music games and by who has already a great deal of experience. Cytus embodies what music games should be, and it's a pity it wasn't released years ago to set the standards of the genre.

In the distant future, the only sentient beings in the world are robots.

They are the last remnant of the human spirit.

However, mankind is not dead.

Technology exists that is capable of transferring memories to these robots.

But with limited space, new memories will gradually overwrite the old.

To prevent the emotions in human memories from fading away, the robots resorted to converting the emotions to music, and storing them in a place called Cytus.

The robots use these songs to experience human emotion and dream that souls exists in each of them...

    My only complaint would be the difficultly spike. You either play the song all sluggish or in hyperspace mode. I'm sorta middle ground but that's it.
