Entertaining game

This game is a lot of fun! Just unlocked two power ups so far. The ads are not at all intrusive, so kudos to that. All the best for your game. Hope it does well.

Very entertaining, but very hard (for me at least).

I agree with atash55 that the ads are very reasonable. This is a true f2p game.

JACKPOT!! Finally get to play this and it's awesome. Great AI behavior, they just come right at you and quickly. I couldn't tell from the trailer that the black blobs all over the place are actually spawning pools. I like it, great idea. Can't wait to play this more later. Off to work.

Quick edit: thanks etsy8nine and mj132 for posting about the "early" release and creating a thread.

Thanks for creating the thread mj132, really cool of you!

So, Hyper Blaster is out early on some App Stores! Don't worry if you can't see it just yet, as it's just propagating out to the different international stores right now - I pulled the trigger a little bit before Thursday to give Apple chance to perform its magic and to make sure that everyone can grab it come the 'official' launch! Not that I'm complaining, I'm over the moon to have the game out there with you all!

I'm so happy you guys are enjoying the game!

The aim for the game has always been to create a really pure, quick-paced arcade shooter for touch - something that's dead simple to play but is a gratifying skill challenge, and I hope that comes across!

Thank you again for supporting the game guys! And to the Touch Arcade staff and everyone in the pre-launch thread, THANK YOU! I hope you get a kick out of the game!

No problem creating the thread for you it's a great games and a real blast, but had to stop playing because I had to go to work, but I'll be playing it quite a bit tonight.

Also paid to remove the ads to show my support for you

Hope this really takes off

Hey Dev another idea not as important as the first one but what if the spawner made some kinda indication when they were about to throw someone out of there. Thus it being little black bubbles that fly out of the top or seeing the enemy slowly come out of the ground, for me I realized standing anywhere NEaR a spawn point could be instant death if one of the fast guys pops out. Then making it a lot of places on the board you can't even be near for this random chance that a tiny guy is the next to fly outta there =]

I do realize you have a bigger box that pops out of the top but maybe with the spawn points constantly bubbling it's hard to even catch it ? This one COULD just be me, let me know what you guys think
