Cytus II shows just how far the rhythm game genre has come and stands out as one of the best of all time. Cytus II is the latest mobile game from Taiwanese developer Rayark, who previously created Deemo and Voez. The newest offering from Rayark takes everything the company has learned in past titles and distills them into the gameplay of Cystus II. Simplistic, rewarding, satisfying and addicting, the touch based rhythm mechanics of Cystus II are amazing, and definitely one for the biggest selling points for the game.

On the surface, the sleek visuals, outstanding music and superb gameplay is sure to entice, but the best feature of this game has got to be the story and the way it is told. Set in a future where the internet has synced with the real world, the player is tasked with performing at a virtual mega concert, all as openers for a legendary DJ. The story may seem simplistic, but in actuality has quite a bit of depth. Narrative is handled through a series of virtual messages where fans discuss favorite artist, songs and share gossip. The virtual message board is where the story truly unfolds with plenty of hidden secrets and subplots.
