(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really full-fledged game reviews as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know if it’s worth your time or money.)
Hypastorm is a unique dual-stick shooter that recently released on the App Store by indie developer Johan Steen. It’s a futuristic arena-style game where you take on waves of “drones” as you try and take out the “spawners” in each level. What makes Hypastorm kind of unique is that you have to jump to move around. It’s a control scheme that I wasn’t expecting and honestly didn’t like at first. Once you get used to things, the game feels almost like a platformer at times and you have to use the environment to your advantage. Hypastorm is a lot of fun, but feels a bit shallow. There’s plenty of fun to be had for your dollar, but I would have liked to see a little more to it. There’s some minor upgrades to your gun, but there’s no special power-ups or other weapons to change things up a little. Hypastorm is a good game that’s just shy of being great. It’s still a fun little game and worth the buck if you’re into shooters.
Hypastorm is also in this week’s iOS Roundup!
