Rayark’s latest title Cytus II is unveiled on the iOS platform. A music-rhythm game where players tap note sequences on screen as a song plays and the Active Judgement Line scans up and down. The price of the base game is USD $1.99.
Building upon its predecessor, Cytus II added new elements to gameplay so players may have a brand-new experience while maintaining the feel of the classic. In terms of visual effects, when players tap the “Click” note, the note will explode in a colorful burst of pixels. In addition, while the song is playing, the Active Judgement Line will adjust its speed according to the music.
On top of that, Cytus II has added two new kinds of notes to increase the already challenging difficulty of the game. The first is the “Long Hold”, which is a note that requires players to hold the note for multiple scans of the Judgement Line. The other is the diamond-shaped “Flick”, which is a note that requires players to swipe left or right when tapping the note.
The game will include over 50 songs. The five characters each represent a different genre of songs. Of the five, Xenon and ConneR are paid characters; they each cost USD $9.99 to unlock. As players unlock more characters, they get access to more songs and receive more clues about the game’s narrative.
Includes mostly western electronic pop songs. Features two new songs created by acclaimed composer Kevin Penkin,〈Survive〉and〈Baptism of Fire〉. Also featured are the works of Korean composer M2U as well as the works of other Taiwanese and Japanese composers.
