ABOUT HYPERBLAST!

Hyperblast provides three different futuristic tracks on which players must race against tenacious AI drones. Tactically the player may avoid enemy drones for an optimum lap time or use one of several power-ups available to destroy the opposition for bonus points.

Progressive tracks become even more challenging but fortunately the player can upgrade with Intel multi-core technology to become more powerful and destructive– necessary for competitive high scores– just like real life!
