You'll think Cycle 28 is a 2D space shooter in the classic arcade style, where only your score matters. The controls are simple. The action is fast-paced. Intense dogfights lead to epic, screen-filling bosses. But the truth is:
You don’t know what Cycle 28 is. Not yet.
As Olivia Bergen – a flight lieutenant that has become separated from her fleet – you only know Cycle 27. You live it over, and over, and over again. Every time you drop from warp they’re there. Then you die.
You don’t know who they are or what they want. You just know you’re the only thing between them and home. So you get better, faster, stronger. Maybe one of these Cycle’s you’ll figure it out. Until then, you can only keep dying.
G-force fuelled battles against an unknown, unknowable enemy. An arcade shooter reminiscent of classic and modern pillars of the genre, which demands focus, cunning, and a gunner’s timing.
Uncover the secrets of why you’re stuck in Cycle, why they’re hell bent on destroying everything you love, and just who they really are.
