Collect Circles and Dodge Spikes in this Circular Rhythm Game!

Cyclic was a game I made way back in high school around 4 years ago (2016-2018) and just recently came back to in order to add some finishing touches. You spin around a circle avoiding triangles and collecting balls, synchronized to the music. Taking inspiration from games such as Super Hexagon, Soundodger+, and Geometry Dash, Cyclic was an exercise to see whether I could make a game that was not only fun to make but also fun to play. Despite the awful user interface, questionable coding practices, and a poorly designed difficulty curve, I enjoyed my time with Cyclic and I hope other people can enjoy it as well.

Notes


To decrease lag, you can check the options "Limit Gameplay Effects" and "Limit Level Effects" in the options menu. The downloadable version also has significantly better performance. You can also enable fullscreen in the options menu, just check the box and click somewhere on the screen. If you don't want to play with Newgrounds integration (removing those pesky popups at the beginning of every level), you can turn Newgrounds integration off in the options menu. Mobile controls don't work in Safari, use Chrome or Firefox!

The music in this game is really good - Marbl is my favorite

Awesome! I played Taut Strings after trying the first level and got a score of 61%, and hey, at least it's not quite failing.

I don't really have much to say about the game, other than that it's really well made. Three inputs add up to a whole lot of complexity.

a cool unique rythm game

too hard for my dumb fuckin head but it's got good music

One of the best rhythm game I've ever played. It's challenging, graphics are nice, it's synced, and some levels are really fun to play (Sanctuary & Aumetra the witch are my favorite).
The only downside I found was that the game is a bit laggy on firefox, but I switched to chrome and it worked well :)
