Publisher: HeroCraft

Hyperforma is a captivating story about a lone explorer who makes his journey into the relic cyberspace "Ancient Network", an artefact of a mysteriously vanished civilization of the past, hoping to reveal the secrets of its masters. During his search, the hero meets monumental “living” interfaces and overcomes numerous obstacles while breaching through the most complex defence systems to ultimately discover the truth, not only about the dramatic events of the past but also about his own being. The gameplay of Hyperforma represents a reinvention of a classic puzzle-based arcade that is viewed as a hacking process of sophisticated virtual defence systems. Prepare for a fascinating journey through an inimitable world, inspired by the works of William Gibson, Dan Simmons and Peter Watts. THE GAME FEATURES: - An atmospheric cyberpunk setting; - A variety of levels and unique bosses; - Philosophic science fiction story; - Mind-boggling puzzles; - Beautiful visuals; - An impressive soundtrack. HYPERFORMA ON THE NINTENDO SWITCH WILL DELIVER AN ALL-NEW EXPERIENCE THAT HAS BEEN TAILORED TO THE SYSTEM. NEW FEATURES INCLUDE: - An all-new 2-player versus mode with controller sharing; - Motion control options; - HD Rumble support; - A completely reworked interface and improved colour grading.

Hyperforma is constantly stunning in terms of looks, but you'll spend too much time wondering what you're supposed to be doing.

Unlocking skills as you progress does render a little of the challenge obsolete as you can choose to let tactics take a back seat and just blast away at blocks to brute force the victory but, if you play within the rules and try to clear all those tricky side challenges, you'll find a tasty little puzzler here that's well worth the small entry fee.

It’s easy enough to play although the concept starts to wear a little thin over time. There’s also a bit of a learning curve at first – and indeed throughout – as a lot of elements aren’t well explained. Still, this is a fun ride while it lasts and should be one to consider if you like something a little different – and you’re spatially aware.

Hyperforma gets so much right with its simple and immersive setup that it's hard to put it down once you start playing; a true indie gem!
