Graphics & Sound
Keeping the look alive in any indie game can be tough. But the developers over at Troglobytes Games got it right with HyperParasite. Being not just the colorful scenes that you’ll experience during each of the new sections of levels, but also the overall movement of each of the characters and the abilities your blob of death will show is an outstanding amount of in-depth development for an indie game. Looks being the main thing you’ll be excited about, the sound effects for HyperParasite might not live up the the graphic standards.
Being a fast-paced shooter, one would hope to see some great soundtracks that will want the user to feel as though they’re moving fast with the character they’re playing as. HyperParasite doesn’t give that full feeling when it comes to the music or shooting. But it all comes together while you’re destroying everything in your path and being the make havoc causing organism.
Replayability is the main thing for any indie developer looks for while they’re making a game and keeping the player interested enough to keep playing. HyperParasite gives you just the right amount of gameplay and a good amount of levels to go through to come back for more. And with HyperParasite being an early access title, the developers over at Troglobytes Games show some promise when it comes to making sure HyperParasite is kept clean and gets some new stuff if needed. But at this time, HyperParasite has enough there to make replayability an option if you’re feeling a top-down shooter with a great arcade look at feel.
