DEEP SPACE SCOUT SHIP HYPER-5 RESPONDS TO AN UNKNOWN DISTRESS BEACON.
A TERRIFYING ENEMY AWAITS.


Announcement Trailer (YouTube)

Hi all! I am a solo, “spare time” indie developer from Oxford, UK and have been working on my first title “Hyper-5” for about 2.5 years. The game is a horizontally-scrolling shmup inspired by classics from the “golden era” of my childhood. As such Hyper-5 is a bucket-list project for me rather than a commercial enterprise.

I am roughly 75% through initial development and have reached the point of having a playable alpha of the first three levels. If anyone is interested in joining the Awesome Alpha Testing Squadron then please send me a DM. :D
I’ll post more news / screenshots etc here as the development continues. Thanks for your interest!

Hi Arity! Thanks for the positive feedback. I like the escort concept in your Dark Star game BTW!
I will send you a PM re: the alpha build of Hyper-5. All the best!

hi all!

Firstly sorry for the lack of updates, the time I have had available for this project has been put into development rather than outreach but I will try to do better on this in the future.
I am very pleased to announce the release of the first public demo of Hyper-5 on itch.io:

Here is a new image from the game to whet the appetite :)

Hi All!
Many thanks to everyone who downloaded the first demo of Hyper-5. I have had a lot of helpful feedback which is great.
The main new features for the V2 demo are:

Configurable “Play Styles”
Choose between the existing “Progression” mode, or “Precision” mode which is more tuned to fit feedback from shmup enthusiasts.

Image

Arcade Mode
Play a streamlined run-through from the first level, starting with only default weapon power. See how far you can get with one “quarter”!

Image

In-game Weapon Power Boosts for Precision play style and Arcade Mode

Image

HP Tweaking
Overall adjustment of health and weapon damage, and damage bonuses for the “Incinerator” and “Needle” weapons on certain enemies.

I have also made some good progress on the final two levels of the game. Level 4 is a deep, dark underwater cave where light is scarce and Hyper-5 comes under attack from strange biological creatures. Here are a few screenshots showing the action:

Thanks and do please try out the V2 demo if you have time:
