We've all played some sort of music rhythm game before - be it Guitar Hero, Rock Band, or Tap Tap Revenge. While only one of those was actually meant to be played on a touchscreen device, it still left something to be desired. Enter a new music rhythm game that not only looks fantastic, but actually makes sense to play: Cytus.

Cytus was originally for iOS devices and has now made its way to Android. In all honestly, it's extremely difficult to explain in text, so here's an excellent video that we found on YouTube that really displays what Cytus is all about:

Pretty nice, no? Cytus is free in the Play Store, but access to all songs requires a one-time in-app purchase of $1.99. Hit the widget to grab it.

    As I mentioned in the game roundup thread (before I saw this one, doh) this is either an impossibly good game or the mechanical turk might be at work again 389 5 star reviews for an average rating of 4.9.....

      Considering I put it as #1 in the roundup, even above Temple Run, it's no surprise it got a high rating. High ratings are suspicious for crappy games, but when they're truly well made, they shouldn't be surprising or necessary indications of foul play.

    The game is a little difficult to play in a 3" screen but it's really good!

  • marcos

    This game is wonderful on a 10" screen and, I bet, a lot more fun.

    It's different in gameplay from Osu...
    So i still rather the official port OsuDroid as all the Osu track are compatible and the app is totally free :
