I didn’t think the day would ever come, but Hyper Bounce Blast [official site] is actually a platform ’em up. That’s not silly shorthand, it’s half platformer, half shoot ’em up. Isn’t that beautiful?
Well, it’s mostly a shmup, but with the added mechanic of jumping and bouncing on certain enemies: not touching the floor gives you a score multiplier and makes you invulnerable to enemy bullets – in fact collecting them in this form gives you even more points. It’s out now, with a launch discount which brings the price down to £3.39.
