Super Hydorah announced: save the universe in the most intense shoot’em up!

An evil force has launched an invasion over the Omnios star. Only you, the most skilled and deadly pilot of the galaxy, can face the dreadful menace of the Meroptians, bio-mechanical creatures set in a ruthless war of conquest. Equip your ship, select a route and fight planet by planet against the hordes of Meroptians!

After the success of their first collaboration, Cursed Castilla (Maldita Castilla EX), Abylight and Locomalito are happy to announce the development of Super Hydorah, a new edition of the renowned shoot’em up (SHMUP) by Locomalito. In Super Hydorah, the player is a space pilot fighting to defeat an evil that threatens the universe: the Hydorah. First platforms and release dates will be announced soon.

Super Hydorah is designed to offer a challenging and memorable experience, just as the traditional SHMUP classics did. Its difficulty requires the player to master the game in order to progress and also choose its own path through the planets: Super Hydorah is a non-linear game, and there are alternative routes – with multiple endings for better replayability! Its original soundtrack, composed by Gryzor87 (who also composed Cursed Castilla EX OST), fits the game just like a glove.
