Hyperion is an oldschool 2D platform shooter,
being developed with SDL.
The main character in Hyperion is your typical astronaut, equipped with a modest, but none the less lethal plasma-arm-cannon.
The premise is as simple as it is brilliant; stranded on a lush forest planet inhabited by blood-thirsty aliens, you have to survive your way through the level until you reach a magic space-crystal.
A level editor is built into the game, allowing you to create levels from scratch. The two levels in this demo were made using the built-in editor.
The game is a work-in-progress, and the demo is currently available for Windows and the handheld GP2X (more platforms may be added later).
