An evil force has launched an invasion over the Omios 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!
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, fits the game just like a glove.
This challenging non-linear SHMUP is a tribute to classics of the horizontal SHMUP genre such as Gradius, R-Type, Darius or Turrican. Super Hydorah is like a true son of the classics.
Abylight Studios is a digital entertainment publisher whose career goes back to 2009. Initially focused on Nintendo platforms and smartphones, since 2016 Abylight is striving for platform diversity and including other big creators in its catalogue. Their most recent project is Cursed Castilla (Maldita Castilla EX), a remastered version of Locomalito's classic retroarcade Maldita Castilla.
Locomalito shares background with many other kids from the 80s: he grew up playing arcade machines and dreaming about creating his own games. He had ideas and wanted to work on them with a passion. Years later, this vocation drove him to work on those ideas and shape them in his own spare time. His goal: creating video games with an old school flavor – adventures that you could play on a straight run, created with pixel-art and chiptune music and sound.
