Game description

There's no room for error when travelling at the speed of light, racing through star systems in a desperate search for a new world to house Mankind. But there are plenty of opportunities for mistakes. Alien races of every conceivable size, shape, temperament and sophistication seek to aid, use, corrupt or destroy you - and you don't know which.

Sure, your starship is 15,000 feet long and armed with remote-controlled fightercraft, kamakazi fighters, a devestating plasma gun and high-tech probes, but will all thatfirepower be against The Stentor, rithless time-travelling space pirates, or the colossal energy beings known as The ZOR?

Perhaps diplomacy is the answer. The Cicisbeo are vain and arrogant - perhaps that ego can be worked to your advantage. The broodmasters are sinister, manipulative and seek universal domination, but are they a little too eager?

Perhaps something can be gained from shrewd trading. But that will be tough against the ever-seeking, ever-hungry Collectors, keepers of the Museum of Time; not to mention the supra-intelligent Jot, who control the minds of everyone nearby.

Whatever choices you make, make them quickly. You're moving at Hyperspeed - second thoughts could be fatal.

For nostalgic gamers

Hyperspeed is a space game, and sequel to Lightspeed, that has you attempting to find a new home world for humans, your quest will have you fighting and dealing with a variety of alien races. Meeting alien races can give you different dialogue choices and allow you to learn about them and what they think about other alien races, you can trade for supplies or to improve your ship, helping or attacking one race can effect how you are treated by the others. One of the interesting races is one that forgets everything about your previous encounters and responds to every situation in the same way, allowing you to attack them then come back after they have forgotten. Traveling to different systems is done by selecting the plants you want to go to and paying the required fuel resource. You will likely have to change up the settings in DOSbox to make the game work properly. The sound effects in combat or when talking to certain alien races can be very annoying. It's a 25 year old game and many games have improved upon it, even other old games that be found cheap, this is just one to play if you have an interest in old games, gaming history, or if you have nostalgic memories of it.
