CHILLINGO has become master of the three-star puzzler, and Cyto is another demonstration of how cute physics-based teasers can easily while away the hours on your iPhone.
Little plasmoid Cyto has lost his memories and must retrieve them by navigating through several dozen levels where you use his elasticity to fire him from one cell to another, eventually finding a pathway to the next portal.
Small tentacle attachments to cells will stick Cyto to a certain place, while stretching between two will create a cradle of goo to accurately fire Cyto from.
While it’s not a revolutionary approach to the genre, the game mechanics, by their very nature, present new way of thinking for puzzle fans. Once you’ve got the gist, though, it won’t take you more than a day or so to crack the lot.
Cyto’s crisp visuals and remarkably-calming classical soundtrack provide a polished experience that’s well worth a few of your pennies.
