Cytus II uses the same mechanics from Cytus, including Click, Drag, and Hold notes. However, three brand new types of note were introduced: Flick Notes, Special Hold Notes, and Click Drag Notes. The player has to follow the notes on the white scan line that goes up and down the screen. The scan line can now increase or decrease its speed midway according to the beat, allowing for a more unique experience. Hitting the notes will increase score and, if accurately so, Technical Points.
Songs and ArtistsEdit
Cytus II includes songs by composers from all across the world, Japan, Korea, the US, Europe, Taiwan and more. Through the characters, players get to play songs from different genres such as electronic, rock and classical.
