Hyperburner was first revealed last year, and now the high-speed sci-fi arcade game is finally expected to arrive on mobile soon, within a week or two according a tweet by the developer.

Hyperburner puts you in control of a perpetually-accelerating craft as it rockets through tight claustrophobic levels filled with moving, shifting hazards to deftly avoid.

Each stage revolves around a sci-fi theme, from mining tunnels where lasers and drills carve through asteroids to trading lanes as frigates fly past. In both finite levels and endless modes, you can choose between a variety of ships, each with different designs, speeds, and shield strengths.

Hyperburner will be coming to iOS devices in late May/early June, with a PC version planned around the same time. You can find more details and GIFs on the developer's Twitter page.
