Super Cyclone released for iOS devices

6 October 2011. London, UK

We are very excited to announce the release of our new iPhone and iPad game: Super Cyclone (

In this frantic twin-stick shooter the player pilots a lone intercept patrol ship tasked with defending star gates on the outer reaches of the galaxy. Species of alien hexapod are attacking the star gates in an effort to gain direct access to your planetary system.

You must prevent alien nests entering a star gate at all costs. Luckily you have a wide variety of armaments at your disposal including the mighty Cyclone, a very powerful weapon that can save him in the heat of the battle. Pilots beware: overuse will cause the ship too explode...

David Streek, creative director of Playerthree, adds: “Super Cyclone on iOS is a visually striking sequel to one of our early simple flash games. It’s enhanced in every way and will have further upgrades and missions added to it in the near future. Over the coming months Playerthree will release several more original-IP titles in parallel across web, iOS, Android, PSP and PSVita.”
