The App Store is full of twee, physics-based puzzlers, each with a cartoon hero, a progression system based on your success in previous stages, and a way of gradually introducing new obstacles as you play.
Cyto fits comfortably into that ever-expanding chunk of the market, and, while it's an interesting enough diversion, it fails to do anything impressive enough to mark it out from the crowd. This is safe, generic fun, but nothing more than that.
You play an amnesiac blob called Cyto, who needs to collect his memories. Thankfully, these are spread around the 81 levels of the game, and you have all the tools you need at your disposal to get them back.
A by-the-numbers physics-puzzler, Cyto is well put-together, but never quite intriguing enough to wholeheartedly recommend
