    ★ Hyperlight is reborn with virtual stick support and many improvements!!!

    In this game you control a stylized spaceship in a virtualized cosmic environment where evil beings try to reach you in order to turn off the last human hope. However your ship, the Hyperlight, posses a special power! if successfully used, it can wipe out all your foes: it can travel at faster-than-light speed (FTL) making it impossible for anyone to catch it and is also able to disintegrate everything it touches!

    With simple gestures, you can move the Hyperlight at regular speed but also turn on its FTL engine to perform incredibly rapid attacks!
    Controls are simple and you can choose from touch only controls, tilt only or the exotic tilt & touch.

    In this game there are also dozens of power ups and weapons you can easily activate simply by gathering them on the battlefield: the Hyperlight ship is able to use them automatically. Hyperlight is easy to play but hard to master, there are so many ways to improve your skills that you will find yourself playing it for months! For a complete guide on all the gameplay secrets of this game see the guide (11 pages!) included ;)

    Can you survive these incredible hordes of enemies?
    Enemies will try to do everything to stop you, assuming several attack formations, different strategies, also leaving powerful dimensional trails on the battlefield that only at FTL speed you can cross!

    And watch out for the evil commanders: huge bosses await the Hyperlight in the dark corners of the universe!

    Hyperlight has been reviewed by AppSpy, here is what they say about the game:

    "Hyperlight is a feast for the senses and a worthy successor to the twin-stick shooters that led up to this title. While the learning curve is likely to put off some players, the challenge is well worth tackling head on and is recommended for those after something a bit more exciting than the usual shooter." 4/5 AppSpy.com link
