Cyclone is an action-puzzle game that puts you in charge
of a colorful spinning game board. Points are earned
by capturing the approaching missiles and collapsing adjacent
color groups of three or more. To advance to the next level,
you must prevent the grid from growing past the edge until
there are no new lines left!
Sounds simple right?
NOT SO FAST!
First, every few seconds a new row of color cell appears on the inside of your
grid. If that isn't enough trouble, there are also several missile types, some
beneficial, some not. How you manage to play the missiles will greatly affect
your ability to score well. Finally, the higher the level, the more critical
split-second decisions you have to make, and the more furious the action becomes!
Cyclone features addictive game play challenging for novices and experts alike,
colorful high resolution graphics, great sound effects, funky techno music and
non-violent fun for all ages.
