Cycle 28 may seem like a fairly basic momentum-based space shooter, but the game itself features a unique Groundhog Day Mechanic that has players reliving the same day over-and-over again. This mechanic drives the mysterious story behind Cycle 28, as players engage in wild dogfights and epic screen-filling bosses. The game's plot is fairly secretive and players will need to uncover the reasons behind their perpetual loop and must find a way to escape it. Padding the story is an amazing original score that blends modern orchestral music and retro electronic sounds.
The gameplay of Cycle 28 revolves around arcade-style space shoot-em-ups and features fast-paced combat and gravity mechanics. Players will be challenged in the game, but through enough practice they will eventually become adept pilots in the mysterious world. Upgrades can be unlocked and applied to the players ship and will give a slight edge in combat.
