Cyto may have one of the oddest names for
a game on the iPhone/iPod Touch. But once you play it, you will feel
right at home and very comfortable. Cyto is a flinger. That means you
tap the blob like character, stretch him back, and let go. He will go
flying in the opposite direction of where you pulled.
There is a distinctive look to Cyto. It has this sort of neon thing going for it. The creature in Cyto has lost his memory, so we collect his memories along the way. There are three memories per level. Some of them can be insanely difficult to reach. Trust me I tried. Over and over again.
Cyto provides the gamer some mystery. A goal to achieve, and a reason to collect as many of the in level items as possible. My biggest issue with Cyto is how difficult it is. I understand flinging, stretching, launching, and dropping. At times I did not understand where to go to try and get the memories, or where to go to get to the portal out of the level.
This game provides a neat little tip when you have stretched your character in the wrong direction, or too far. He will turn red. Letting go at that point will send him back to his original position. I got into the music in Cyto. I enjoyed listening to it, as well as going through the tutorial portions.
Cyto may be one of the most artistic looking flingers I have ever seen. It is like taking Totem Runner and making it into a flinger. That may sound odd, but it makes sense to me. Families can learn simple physics thanks to Cyto. They may also experience a lesson in perseverance.
