Indie Review: Hypership Out of Control + Competition!Release Date: Out Now Genre(s): Arcade-Style 2D Futuristic Shooter Developer: Fun Infused Games [Rating:7.5/10] Just like “A Shooter”, this is also a nice simple and sweet indie game. You could say this is the anti-A Shooter, to be precise. Hypership Out of Control is somewhat different to “A Shooter”, also released on Xbox Live Indie Games. The game is a 2D Format Arcade style game, where you travel up the map through 10 waves, each with their own increased difficulties. Instead of shooting enemies to score points, you collect coins and rake up your score as much as you can. You need to avoid all the obsticles, however, such as rocks, blocks and more. The futher you go in the game, the higher your score. You only have a certain amount of lives as well. Short and simple. The game has it’s own little, tiny backstory.
You’ve accidentally pushed too hard on the accelerator, making it get stuck in the circuit. Your brakes; gone. The only thing you can do is avoid all the space debris by either shooting it or avoiding it. The longer you live, the more points you get.It’s nice to have an Indie Game that has it’s little backstory, as you see most games just don’t even try hard enough. Most Indie Games are simple, but utterly dull and pointless, but when it has a backstory, even a tiny one, it makes the game feel more retro.
