Home Computing Weekly (Jan 08, 1985)
Not easy, in the sense that there is something to learn, but there is lot of enjoyment to be had in the learning. It's good when you fail! The best game I've seen in months.
From the moment the helicopter first takes off, with superbly animated whirling rotor blades, to the final crash, the game is enthrallingly addictive.
Sinclair User (Jan, 1985)
THE VIOLENT scenario of TLL has been replaced by an altogether more humanitarian mission in the sequel, Cyclone. Rather than provide you with a swing-wing Tornado, Vortex has obtained a nippy little helicopter, and your task is not to bomb the bases but collect vital medical supplies in the face of a colossal hurricane.
Crash! (Jan, 1985)
Considered to be more fun than TLL and very playable, but perhaps lacking a little in lasting appeal.
Your Spectrum (Apr, 1985)
Good use of the graphics techniques developed for TLL, but there doesn't seem to be enough going on to give it a really lasting appeal.
Happy Computer (May, 1985)
Eine simple Spielidee, mit Grandezza und grandioser Grafik präsentiert - das ist der Stoff, aus dem die Hits sind. „Cyclone“, das Hubschrauberopus, setzt bereits zum Höhenflug in die Spiele-Charts an. Kein Wunder, wenn man einmal hinter dem Joystick saß: Auf dem Bildschirm leuchtet allerfeinste 3D-Grafik auf und ein auf den ersten Blick einleuchtendes Cockpit-Display mit Flughöhe, Geschwindigkeit, Tankinhalt und verbleibender Zeit.
