Hyperspace Deliver Service is a game that been described by developer Zotnip as being Oregon Trail in space but with deeper mechanics. The game initially launched for PC last year and made its way to Nintendo Switch last month. Now it has been announced that the strategy game will be heading for iOS and Android on 23rd April.

The game starts with your delivery team being hired to transport a package to the planet Miridian IV. It's an assignment that could prove incredibly lucrative but will be fraught with danger as you'll encounter plenty of crazy robots on your journey alongside dealing with the unpredictability deep space can throw at you.

There are an array of resources you'll have to manage along the way to ensure your ship and crew are equipped to tackle the arduous journey. You'll need to keep an eye on your oxygen levels, food stocks and fuel among other things to ensure you reach Miridian IV on time.

Throughout your adventure, you'll meet a host of different aliens some you can trade with and others you can help if they are in need of it. Not everyone is going to be friendly though and sometimes you'll have to be prepared to fight for your lives.
