Hyperlight EX

Hyperlight is an high intensity arcade action game in which you control a spaceship that fights against hordes of evil alien monsters in a virtual cosmic environment. Your spaceship has a special capability: it can travel at a Faster Than Light speed (F.T.L.) becoming itself the final weapon.

By colliding with enemies in this state the ship can instantly destroy everything it touches! In the game there are also plenty of other bonus, weapons and entities that can help you overcome the many difficulties you’ll be facing, including battles against terrific final bosses that await you on the dark side of the universe!

  • Full New Nintendo 3DS™ controller support.

  • Stereoscopic 3D viewing only for New Nintendo 3DS™!

  • Stunning game graphics, rich in special effects, enemies and explosions!

  • Innovative gameplay, immediate and highly rewarding!

  • Arcade Mode with 50+ levels, 8 mid-boss stages and 4 final boss battles!

  • Infinity Mode with tons of new levels and several mid-boss stages.

  • Panic Mode with its peculiar tilt control (uses accelerometer)

  • 3 Bonus entities (Drones, Turrets and Plasma Barriers) that will help you in fighting the continuous waves of enemies.

  • 7 Bonus weapons (Bomb, Laser, Globe, Crystal, Machinegun, Missle and Virus) that will help you in pulverizing everything on the screen.

"The game looks good, especially in 3D, and I like the minimalistic but electronica-inspired soundtrack. Hyperlight EX can be very hard, but it’s fun and scratches a couple itches I had. Give it a shot!" -- 8/10 -- NintendoWorldReport.com

"CatfishBlues Games has taken the score attack shooter genre and taken out most of the shooting, resulting in a fun, frantic, difficult game that arcade fans will surely enjoy." -- 7/10 -- NintendoLife.com

"Hyperlight EX really shines with the neon and colourful effects from the ships and weapons and the 3D effect has a great effect on the background." -- 7.5/10 -- 3dsBlessed.com

"If you played Geometry Wars or Resogun, and you hated it, maybe you should skip this one. However, if you enjoyed either of those games and own a 3DS, I would classify Hyperlight EX as a “must own” game." -- 71/100 -- PlaySomeVideoGames.com
