Hyper-5 shoots you off to deepest space!

hyper-5

We’re not expecting too much to be new about Hyper-5, after-all, we’ve taken in more shoot ’em ups over the years than we care to remember. But still, the chance to shoot off to deepest, darkest space never fails to excite. 

Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch is Hyper-5 from Eastasiasoft and the creative minds at Hyper Productions. It’s priced at £8.39 and sees you heading off to the stars as you respond to a distress beacon. From there, it’s up to you to shoot anything – and everything – that moves. 

It certainly looks the part as you aim to master side-scrolling stages, take in cinematic moments and upgrade your ship and weapons to ensure you come out the other end as a lean mean fight machine. Various foes await too, as do big bosses, online leaderboards and Time Trial missions that are thrown your way with the express intention of testing your skills like never before. 

With inspiration from the old-school shoot ’em ups from decades gone by, taking in the various stages and levels of Hyper-5 should well appeal to many – especially when you take that reasonably low asking price into consideration. The key features help sell it even more…

  • Blast off for a cinematic sci-fi experience inspired by genre classics!
  • Enjoy side-scrolling shoot’em up action across 5 unique stages.
  • Configure your loadout and upgrade weapons in the Armoury!
  • Select between Progression and Precision play styles.
  • Challenge online leaderboards in Arcade mode.
  • Test your skills in bonus Time Trial missions!

Keep an eye out for our full review of Hyper-5 on Xbox Series X|S (yep, optimised for new-gen is Hyper-5) but until then you’ll find yourself able to get in on the shooting action by heading to the digital store of your choice. The Xbox Store is our favourite, but Hyper-5 should also be hanging around the PlayStation Store and Nintendo eShop too. 

Game Description:

Respond to the distress beacon and confront an unknown enemy in cinematic shoot’em up action!

Hyper-5 draws inspiration from shoot’em up genre classics of the ‘90s while offering modern advancements in cinematic style!

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
