Cyro - which owes rather a large debt to Kuru Kuru Kururin on GBA - is a game about building a tower to the moon. You're in charge of some earnest little creatures who want to improve their lot in life, and you're going to do so by helping them transport planks.
Wait - come back! - it's much better than it sounds. The creatures work as a pair to carry a plank through each of the top-down mazes that make up the 48 levels in this game, and they continually rotate. Which is handy, but infuriating at the same time.
Handy, because the plank must be moved past complex obstacles, and rotating it is the only way to squeeze through narrow gaps.
You'll like Cyro. You might not be any good at it, but you'll not be able to dislike it
