Cytus Lambda (styled as Cytus λ) is the PlayStation Mobile version of the original Cytus. It is currently released only for PlayStation Vita and formerly PlayStation Mobile certified devices.

On June 7, 2013, the Cytus team uploaded a video on YouTube containing a teaser for their upcoming PS Vita port of Cytus, entitled Cytus Lambda. Gameplay and such are similar from the original Cytus, except for the new title screen and ten songs. Only Chapter 1 is free on this version of Cytus. It was released in June 26, 2013. It was discontinued in mid/late 2014 due to low demands of the PlayStation Mobile Store.

Other differences from the original version[]

  • The background's title screen is different and its music is from Cytus Alive: "The Lost" by Sta.
  • Load time before selecting chapters. Also, load times are longer here.
  • Million Download Plan page is removed in this version to make room for "Prologue: L I V E"/Chapter 0.
    • In the original Cytus 6.1, Chapter 0 is "PROLOGUE" instead of "Prologue L I V E".
  • The Click FX sounds a little louder and precise sync, notably when sliding in drag notes that it doesn't follow touch inputs but follows the movement of the scanline.
    • Unlike the original version, Click FX is present and can be heard in some Android phones.
  • There are no lines under the pause button on the top left and score in top right.
  • The drag notes trails (not including the big circle and the arrow) glow a bit lighter in this version.
  • If you get TP100 you get TP "100.00" instead. This was later applied to Cytus II and Alpha.
  • The hold note bars glow less in this version.
  • The combo and number graphics are off-positioned in this version.
  • Actions from Facebook and Twitter are removed. Halcyon is pre-unlocked after purchasing the game.
    • When Cytus 6.0 came out Sync scores feature is not added in this version.
  • This version still retained the old stats screen during 6.0 update.
  • "C H A P T E R" spacing in Chapters I-IV song select screen is fixed in this version,
  • Chapter 1 and Alive songs are free, all chapters can be unlocked for $11.99, plus future chapters that are locked in the original mobile version will become free to play in Lambda. Unlike Android version, cooldown and ads are removed and Retry button is pre-unlocked.

Known bugs/mistakes[]

  • It is reported that, in version 5.0, the methods of triggering Slit's hidden counterparts are reversed; Triggering Slit O will result in Slit I being triggered instead, and vice-versa.
  • In the November 2013 update for this game, Some original note charts in Chapter S from the Rayark Party Demo version of Cytus (pre-4.5) are later replaced by the original 4.5 charts in the February 2014 update (5.0)

Final Note[]

As the PlayStation Mobile store's services are completely shut down, Lambda will no longer be downloadable in the future. Version 6.0 is now marked as the final version of the game.
