Hypership Out of Control
   Home    Screen Shots    Videos    Press    Download    Comics

"Though at this point the retro sheen isn't exactly the newest ish on the block, Hypership pulls it off so well and so thoroughly that, if slowdown could be kept to anything less than ruthless, a real-deal NES version would be warranted. Co-op or solo, the increasingly rapid, vertically scrolling shoot-’em-up commands attention, especially while approaching the seizure-inducing, twitch-dependent heights that make it so satisfying. Add in an endearing sense of humor and cool extra modes, and Hypership's place as the creamiest of the XBLIG crop is cemented. "

Responsive movements, endearing retro graphics, a charming presentation and 4-player single screen play make for an unforgettable experience that’s fun in short doses or marathon sessions with a few mates.
