If you ever find yourself missing the days when you burned all your cash on Ikaruga, then ended up a weepy, frustrated mess on the floor - fear not! That experience is basically coming back next week in the form of Hyperstellar.
Hyperstellar is a rock hard schmup that challenges you to shoot everything in sight, collect gold drops, then upgrade and buy new ships. And the cycle repeats.
You only get three lives though, and if you lose them you have to either pay for more (just like in an arcade), watch an ad, or start all over again.
Then, if you get really annoyed, you can buy coin packs to get those all-important upgrades much faster or new ships. These have different hitboxes and attack patterns that will appeal to different playing styles.
If you're into the idea of Hyperstellar there's not long to wait, as it's all set for launch on July 21st on iOS.
