Description: Humans are so annoying. Look at how arrogantly they walk! We are the solution for that problem. We’ll just harvest a few souls and craft some minions! Hypercide is a VR game where you play as the villain to the human race. You pick up monsters and throw them through the veil of reality and onto earth where they will automatically begin their attack. Beware though, you have limited mana to send minions so you must pick wisely. The humans are not so weak they will not resist either. They will send their strongest. Cops, Soldiers, Super Soldiers, Tanks, Heroes with magic swords, Superheroes, even shonen protagonists; wipe them all out! Then use the souls you gathered to level up your minions so you can attack the more resilient cities.

Review: I think its important to know that I don’t really enjoy playing battle simulators like ‘Totally Accurate Battle Simulator’, because that is the sort of game ‘Hypercide’ is. You get to pit monsters and robots aginst us humans in a mini-battle top and to be fair it does look great with a nice Superhot style in the graphics. This game does try and bring a crazy art style to the genre which does mix things up a bit, bit for me it also made things far too weird. While I won’t be recommending this game at the moment, it only needs a little more work before it becomes something so much better than it currently is.
