About This Game

Violet Cycle is a kinetic arcade action game. Embrace your rage as you slice through metal and wire, dispense silicon-shattering kicks and discover the beautiful order that lies hidden inside the dance of chaos. There's also quite a bit of dashing.

Story

Something terrible has happened to life itself in your pitiful corner of the universe and the only way forward is the way out. Set the last remaining Tower Garden on its way by climbing to the peak. Save the precious seeds of life found along the way. Do not fall to despair!

  • Combat-rich with intense sensory feedback
