Mechanics

Hyperide is devoid of any storyline and focuses on pure gameplay. At first glance, the game looks like an old-school space shooter, pulled directly from the arcades. We pilot a small ship, which flies up the screen through the levels full of danger. However, the gameplay is different in one key aspect - our unit is unarmed. The whole game is about avoiding collisions with objects on the screen.

The graphics were made in nice 3D, but the gameplay mechanics are fully two-dimensional and are based on a simple touch interface, allowing you to efficiently control the flight path of the ship by touching the left or right side of the screen. There are two modes to choose from. The first one requires fulfilling specific tasks and reaching the end of a given level. The second is the infinite mode, where threats are generated randomly. Here, the map never ends, so the gameplay lasts until the ship is destroyed. We can get motivated by the wish to beat our records and those achieved by the rest of the community.

We can also unlock many useful items and better ships. The authors have not forgotten about achievements either. From time to time, we may come across astronauts drifting through space. Saving them is dangerous, but the game rewards those who are willing to take this risk.
