Hypsys is a top down, scrolling shooter split into two parts. The first part involves you piloting a hovercraft with one weapon – a gun turret located to the right of the craft – while in the second part, you pilot a helicopter. The scrolling flows smoothly but it slows down when there’s a lot going on screen-wise. Energy and ammo power-ups spring up occasionally but nothing else. Some good colour mixing in places makes you think that the CPC has suddenly developed a larger palette; this game is very colourful. However, there is no sound at all.
