What to expect in Hyper Gauntlet v1.1
  • Hyper Sections - Every 3 levels the game enters an ultra-hard section. These could be incredibly fast, they could be incredibly dense in blocks or they could even be custom sections (perhaps spelling out a word or two). Completing a Hyper Section without losing a life is difficult, but the rewards will be great (although I'm still working on that).
  • Numpad Controls - New control scheme that maps each possible position to the numpad (and it's configurable, so you could really map it to anywhere).
  • Low Contrast Mode - The high contrast of Hyper Gauntlet's colours hurting your eyes? Turn on Low Contrast Mode to take it a bit easier.
  • Restart Mid-Game - Completely messed up? Just hit backspace to try again!
  • Update Checker - No more will you have to wait for me to email you when there's been an update. Now Hyper Gauntlet will tell you when your version is out of date! Don't worry though, you can still play out of date versions, but your scores will be segregated by version number to keep it fair.

As always, you can buy it now from or Indie Game Stand[].

Hyper Gauntlet on Indie Game Stand![]

Enter the Hyper Gauntlet, an adrenaline infused manic dodge-em-up arena of high-speed obstacles and twitch reaction. Hurtle ever forwards through gaps between blue and red obstacles. With each obstacle passed your score increases, but so does your speed! Use the tactical slow motion to postpone the inevitable and rack up the high score.

Do you have what it takes? The Hyper Gauntlet awaits.

Alpha Reviews:
It’s the sort of thing you don’t stop playing until long after your day’s responsibilities have rotted or left you a series of very angry text messages. And then after that, it sits in the back of your skull, screaming to the forefront every time you blink, colorful squares rushing by behind your eyelids like midnight traffic. - Nathan Grayson, Rock, Paper, Shotgun

Give Hyper Gauntlet 10 seconds of your time, and if you’re not gripped by then, fair enough, move on with your life. Otherwise, welcome to the leaderboards! - Chris Priestman, IndieStatik

My evening’s been lost to this reflex-based tunnel-racer. - Julian Benson, PC Games N

  • Hurtle at whiplash speeds through a never-ending gauntlet of shiny blocks.
  • Boost your score with reckless runs and life-saving power ups
  • Compete against the world for the highest score
  • “Just. One. More. Go.” replayability

I'd love to bring this to Rift, after we exit beta I might look into funding options for a dev kit.

Play this with 3d vision (red and blue blocks=red and blue stereoscope) and xpadder if you have joystick or razr hydra.

I can only wonder what this is like on the rift! 5o5.

Very interesting arcade! I like it! But I expect it will not be very expensive.

@udellgames Oh. Cool.

That's a good idea, @eejaycee. I'll go and add that now!

You know what would be cool? If there was an option to control it with the number keypad, you know, since there's nine blocks and there's 1-9. Just a random thought.
