'Super Hydorah' (ALL) Comes To PS4 And Vita Next Week

by Rainier on Dec. 5, 2017 @ 9:36 a.m. PST

Super Hydorah is a fast-paced, challenging, non linear SHMUP that gives a new turn of the screw to the gameplay of classics such as Gradius, R-Type, Darius or Turrican.

Super Hydorah is designed to offer a challenging and memorable experience, just as the traditional SHMUP classics did. Its difficulty requires the player to master the game in order to progress and also choose its own path through the planets: Super Hydorah is a non-linear game, and there are alternative routes – with multiple endings for better replayability! Its original soundtrack, composed by Gryzor87 (who also composed Cursed Castilla EX OST), fits the game just like a glove.

This challenging non-linear SHMUP is a tribute to classics of the horizontal SHMUP genre such as Gradius, R-Type, Darius or Turrican. Super Hydorah is like a true son of the classics: it shares their genes – but it’s not their clone!

Saving the Universe will not be an easy task, pilot, but we are sure that you will be up to the challenge.
