Space Cycler is not a new game, but it was recently released and a nice surprise for me on the App Store. I love distinctive graphics that separate games from the rest of the pack, and Space Cycler has that. The music and sound are fun too, and the intuitive controls work well for one-handed play. The stages are challenging, and I can definitely see myself playing this for a while, especially with the co-op.
Ultimately, Space Cycler isn't a bad game - it provides a unique take on the shmup, and features enough enemies, powerups, and explosions to be fun in short bursts. But its levels are just a bit too long, and the controls are uncomfortable to play with for the time it takes to finish a stage. Co-op is a good laugh for a short time, but eventually it all becomes a bit of a slog. Shorter play times would make this an easy recommendation, but as it stands, it could do with some refining.
