As music rhythm games go, Cytus Alpha is up there with the best of them. Some may be a little put off by its price – £44.99/$49.99 is rather steep – but thanks to its sheer amount of content, it’s well worth it. There are tens of hours of fun to be had with the game, especially for players that seek to tackle all of its songs on Hard difficulty. And every minute they spend in that pursuit will be filled with energetic excitement.
Cytus α is a wonderful take on the rhythm genre with a note layout which is really nicely suited to Nintendo Switch. Tapping and sliding your way around the handheld’s touchscreen is an absolute delight when you’re in full flow, and should more and more players start to fill up the online lobby, this could easily be considered one of the best rhythm games on the platform.
If you aren’t into the genre, it’s really hard to recommend Cytus α as it doesn’t hold anything outside that framework. There’s no deep narrative hook to pull you in, nor an extensive amount of customisable options to unlock and play around with. If you love the genre though, this is a simple and solid example that should have you tapping for a long while.
