Hypership Out of Control review (iOS / Universal)

February 1, 2012

“Out of control, out of control, out of control…”

10 word description: Retro style vertically scrolling space shooter. 4 game modes. Game Center.

10 word review: Delightfully manic overload of speed, shooting, retro sights & sounds.

You will like this if you enjoy: Fast-paced scrolling shooters with a nostalgic look and feel.

The good news: Attractive and authentic retro graphics. Great sounds and music. Flawless relative touch control method. Large choice of ships. Very much “one more go” – gameplay is great.

The bad news: Nothing, really. If you’re after a retro shoooter experience that has been polished to perfection for your iPhone or iPad, this should be just what you’re looking for.

Arcadelife verdict: Great game; gets everything right but mostly the controls for me, as the first thing I usually say when playing a game like this is, “Why can’t I have relative touch control?” and this already has it so I’ve got nothing to complain about.
