App description: You wake up in the medical bay of a spaceship with no memory of who you're, who put you there, and why. When you explore the spaceship, you realize that you're not alone. You meet strangers claiming that they too, have lost their memories. Are they friends or foes? Who is the mastermind? Are you in purgatory?

Hyper Rift is a visual gamebook adventure that draws inspirations from classic science fiction mysteries. We've crafted an original science fiction story that blends real science with imaginations and present choices that lead to far-reaching consequences. It also features number puzzles, situational puzzles, multiple endings and interesting characters that can save your life or betray you in critical moments.

Features:

- A novel gamebook format that guides you with a map of the game world and rich sound effects.
- 14 Endings to unlock, depending on how you play - kill or rescue? fix or sabotage?
- Loaded with hidden references to science fiction classics.

A player posted a question about an encounter in Hyper Rift in a game cheat site!

http://www.chaptercheats.com/qna/iph...htm?qid=113797

Hao is someone you'll meet in the spaceship. He's knowledgeable and daring, but a bit uppity. Having someone like that around might help you overcome some challenges, but you'll first have to pass a grueling mini game that tests your knowledge in dark matter and wormholes.

Can you help Chuck recruit Hao successfully?

We look forward to the day when a fan creates a walkthrough for the 14 endings of Hyper Rift!

I assume it only saves when you exit the app - I paused the app to check e-mails, when I went back it restarted, and it hasn't saved my progress at all - I think I was near the end too

Other than that it's quite fun, I like the combination of map and gamebook.

I'm sorry to hear that, HLW.

Auto-save on quit was removed so that the player can regret their decisions. It was initially in the game. It's really difficult to please everyone. Now we know the pain of having to satisfy the world .

You really need auto-save on quit on a mobile game, what if the phone rings or you get a massage (for example)? You need to be able to quickly switch apps without worrying that the first one will lose all your progress if it restarts.
