Hypernova: Escape From Hadea Review
Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts on Hypernova: Escape from Hadea by ActaLogic. I received a copy of the game for review purposes. Like all of my reviews, however, this has no effect on my thoughts and experiences.
Hypernova is a game that mixes both RTS and Tower Defense elements. The game follows an alien race called the Scynthians, as they attempt to escape their moon, Hadea. Their sun is dying and it’s up to only a select few of their race to save them. Their goal is to build an interstellar teleportation device to travel to a system that is safe for them to survive. Hadea is a hostile place and you’ll need to defend your base from the creatures of the moon. Hadea is also covered in a thick purple fog that you’ll need to use purifiers to get through.
Unlike most tower defense games, Hypernova allows you to choose where to create your base. It’s recommended that your base be within the distance of 3 resource types. The resources include Omnifoam, Multicrete, and Zapp. Each resource is finite but they will slowly recharge overtime. There are also special resources to look for including, Izagite, Raqal, VDTP, and Axine. You can hold only 500 of each special resource.
The creation of buildings and turrets is through 3D Printing, your base being a giant 3D printer. To build turrets you need to construct a separate, smaller printer called the Armory. Other buildings include a Relay, Crib, Relaxyfier Driller, , and many others.
There is also a tech tree in the game which you can use to learn how to construct new buildings or turrets. To research new techs you’ll need the Techshroom.
Your main objective in the game is to ultimately build the teleportation device so the Scynthians can escape. This is done across 4 stages in the late game research tree. It’ll also requires a large amount of resources to build each part as well.
Overall, Hypernova: Escape from Hadea is a great mixture of RTS and Tower Defense elements. It gives you a lot of freedom of choice which is something that most tower defense games lack. It also has some great art design and some unique structure designs. The game is quite fun and if you’re in the market for something unique to play, then Hypernova is definitely worth checking out.
Thanks for reading my review folks. I’ll be back with my next review soon and happy gaming!
