ABOUT THE DEVELOPER

Combopunk is the one-man development venture of UK video game designer Adam Smart. Adam has been a professional in the games industry for many years, working as Lead Designer at studios such as Eurocom and Jagex. He formed Combopunk in May 2016 as a creative outlet for new and original game concepts and Hyper Blaster marks his first solo commercial release.

Adam's obsession with the pure, addictive, skill-based gameplay of early arcade games is at the heart of Combopunk's output and has had a huge impact on Hyper Blaster's brand of "one more go" score attack shooting.


DEVELOPMENT

Hyper Blaster began life as a proof of concept demo with a simple but daunting ethos: pair arcade-style twitch gameplay with modern touch controls. The result turned out to be so much fun that work began on expanding the demo, refining the gameplay and introducing the game's vibrant visuals which have now become the calling card for Hyper Blaster's quick-paced action.

Following the release of Hyper Blaster on iPhone and iPad, a new PC version was developed that utilises intuitive mouse control, and features a ton of tweaks especially for desktop.
