Tying in with the motion picture web series of the same name, Cybergeddon is a pretty simple game despite the potentially complex storyline.
Players must stop cyber attacks from breaking out across the world. This is done by, well, tracing one's finger across the screen in each level. While the storyline might sound quite action packed and thrilling, this is far from the case when it comes to what's actually involved.
During each level, players are presented with a core that must be defended on the bottom of the screen while the enemy's base is located at the top. Between them lies a twisting path in which the attacks gravitate towards your core. To ensure victory, players must trace their finger along the route, unleashing some offensive virtual bugs.
As things progress, new types of attacks are unlocked, as well as new types of enemies. It keeps things slightly more interesting but ultimately, the gameplay is much the same. The paths might get more complicated than their straight forward predecessors but the key purpose remains the same. Things can get pretty challenging as the levels progress with different bugs to take into account and an onslaught of opposing attacks. Despite that, I struggled to be hooked by anything that Cybergeddon offers.
There might be plenty of levels to play, 30 in all, but it's tough to persevere when it feels like the gameplay isn't really evolving sufficiently enough. Things turn samey a little too fast. There's no real need to spend any money through the in-app purchases, although they do make life easier, so Cybergeddon benefits from its ability to be purely free. Free doesn't make it unmissable though, just a passing distraction for a brief time.
