Cytus Wiki

The note is the main subject of the game. Notes are represented as bubbles. They follow a song's beat through tapping, holding or dragging them as long as these are active in the active scan line system. They are the basis of the score and TP.

There are three common types of notes in Cytus, four in Omega, and five in Cytus II:

Play inst4

These are notes that should be flicked along the arrow's direction in Omega, and any direction in Cytus II. They are exclusive to Cytus Omega and Cytus II.

Special note types[]

  • Piano notes

These notes are exclusive to Alice, Hans, and Graff.J. They come from the top of the screen and must be tapped once they reach the bottom, similar to gameplay from Deemo, another Rayark title. Piano notes come in blue, which must be tapped individually like Click notes, and purple, which don't need to be tapped, similar to Drag notes.

  • Dance notes

These notes are currently exclusive to Body Talk's Crash difficulty chart. The song's first four notes are seemingly regular Click and Drag notes, but leave behind a "dance pad" when hit, each representing a color and direction. Afterwards, arrows scroll across the bottom of the screen from right to left, pointing in the direction of one of the dance pads. The correct pad must be hit when the note hits the target line on the left side.
