Cytus – Game Review


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…


 Cytus is a music rhythm video game developed by Rayark Inc. It currently features 200 songs and two difficulties for each song. Cytus is available on iOS and Android. The iOS version was released in January 12, 2012 while the Android version was released on April 5, 2012

System Requirements


Requires iOS 6.0 and up. It is said to be optimized for iPhone 5 and iPod Touch.


Android 2.3 and up, 971MB+ free space in device, CPU greater than 1GHz, RAM with 512MB and 140MB free space in RAM



The gameplay is much similar to osu!. But, I believe that Cytus has a more smoother interface than osu!. Maybe because, in Cytus, you’ll actually touch the notes and makes you feel like it’s more smoother and that you can score the notes easily. It’s really different if you’re playing a rhythm game from a pc to a tablet. For the gameplay, I’ll go with Cytus.

Arts and Sound


This is where Cytus makes the game so great. Though, the songs are limited and it’s only picked, which means you can’t download a song like in osu, the songs are actually really good. Combine it with the awesome art of the game and BOOM!, you got yourself a great rhythm game. I really love the art for every music and also love the music itself. Such a beautiful art and beautiful music. Though most of the soundtracks are japanese, the music is still good.



I played Cytus a long time ago but I stopped playing for a while. Now, I decided to go back to playing Cytus, and just like when I first played Cytus, I got addicted to it. Also, they added more chapters in the game, which means more songs that I haven’t played before. I got addicted to playing this game a long time ago, but it’s still addicting as of today.



If you’re looking for a great rhythm game, you might want to try Cytus. If it’s your first time playing a rhythm game, Cytus is also a good starter. It’s free on Google Play, I don’t know if it’s free on App Store on iOS too. This game is really addictive, especially if you’re into rhythm games.
