Gentlemanly Headbutts Abound In New Retro Runner Hypeman
A stout new pixelated runner called Hypeman has arrived on Android, bringing with it addictingly challenging gameplay, boisterous yet refined graphics, and a respectable amount of variety thanks to its array of secret unlockables. Released as a collaborative effort between indie developers Pizzamakesgames and Zeichenkraftwerk, Hypeman is a charming retro style sidescroller with simple yet satisfying mechanics that are designed to push players’ reflexes to their limits as special game altering secrets pass them by in plain sight. Unlike some more bare-boned runners out there Hypeman has both a meaty story mode and the obligatory endless mode that play off of each other and even help players progress further in the game. With its adorably eccentric art aesthetic and intense gameplay designed to provide a real challenge Hypeman successfully lives up to the hype.
