Super Cyclone Review
- The cyclone attack changes things up from the normal pack of twin stick shooters.
- Pumping electronica soundtrack.
- Not much gameplay variety.
Yet another twin stick shooter. Solidly made but doesn't bring much to the table.

Oops, we seem to have stumbled upon another twin stick shooter. Luckily for us, not only is Super Cyclone well made, but as you would hope of every addition to the genre, it adds a couple neat little things to the standard 'fly around and blast stuff' gameplay.
First off, the controls are nice and responsive. The ship has a tight turn to it, but this never leaves you without an evasive escape opportunity when the enemy ships come. The goal of each level is to defend the stargate from incoming waves, and especially the enemy nests that continuously spawn annoying little swarm creatures. If one of these nests hit the stargate, it's game over. Aiding you in this task are a variety of different weapon power-ups of varying help, but the signature addition is the cyclone attack (it is the name of the game afterall). By double tapping the shoot stick, your craft turns into essentially a sawblade, that will cut up most enemies stupid enough to be anywhere near you.
As you complete levels and amass star ratings and coins, you can use this currency to purchase more reserves of the upgraded weapons, making high scores and defending the stargate a lot easier. The visual style works well with each enemy type being easily recognized, and either shot or avoided, with a pumping electronica soundtrack helping your adrenaline stay high throughout. There are twenty one levels to take on, but sadly aside from different enemies, the game does get stale rather quickly.
So there you have it. If you'd like to shoot a variety of aliens with weapons and then tear them apart with a sawblade, Super Cyclone has got you covered. What you see here is what you get, and that should be more than enough to make a purchase decision on.

Super Cyclone is a frantic space-shooter in a spiraling universe.
You are the lone pilot of a intercept-class patrol ship sent to defend groups of stargates on the outer reaches of the solar system. Species of alien hexapod are attacking the stargates in an effort to gain direct access to your planetary system.
Stop the alien nests from entering the gates while fending hordes of aliens coming for you.
Use all your available armaments including the mighty Cyclone, a very powerful weapon that can save you in the heat of the battle. But be careful: overuse it and your ship may explode…
