"Cyrus has chosen YOU to help him battle a team of asthma villians who are trying to convince kids that asthma can't be managed."
Throughout the game, Cyrus teaches you when and how to use different medications, how asthma affects the lungs, and how to talk to your friends about asthma. You'll need this knowledge in order to outsmart the villains... and win back the pieces of the code.
