Tilt To Move, Avoid, Attack, Defend:

Have You Ever Controlled An Indestructible Comet?
You may have already played many action games that promise a fast-paced and fluid gameplay, but certainly nothing like what is proposed in Hyperlight! Turn on your F.T.L. (faster-than-light) engine, and splinter into infinity and beyond by making scorched earth around you. It will not be so easy to control your destructive fury.
Tilt To Become The Most Fearsome Weapon:
This time, for the first time in a game like this, enemies will have fear of you, because in Hyperlight your own spaceship can be turned into the most dangerous weapon, the ultimate weapon that can destroys the endless horde of evil cosmic beings otherwise destined to devour the universe.
But Wait.. We Can't Tilt Forever:
If that were not enough, you can increase your destructive power taking advantage of various bonuses and deadly weapons scattered throughout the levels, but always ensure you have a good supply of fuel if you do not want to meet a bad end! Also do not forget to perform ever more complex and satisfying attack combinations to cause massive destructions of enemies, if you aspire to reach galactic scores. Turn on your engine and go, get ready for a unique experience.
