Overview

Hyper Scape is an online shooting game where players battle to be the last man standing. It's unusual because it integrates a feature that allows viewers of matches (on Twitch) to affect the game.

The game is set in the future and the arena battles are a sport known as Crown Rush. 100 players are dropped onto the slowly shrinking map and must eliminate each other by shooting. To win you must hold the crown in the final sector for 45 seconds.

You can find and upgrade weapons and abilities that let you transform into a giant ball that can bounce around or make them invisible. When defeated the player becomes an "Echo", that can inform other players about the location of enemies. When an enemy is killed, you can use the revive point they drop to bring back a fallen teammates.

Players progress through the tiers system, unlocked by the battle pass. Each tier requires 200 experience points from completing daily and weekly challenges, performing well in games. Points are also earned from interacting with Twitch streamers.

Age Ratings

Rated PEGI 12 for depictions of non-realistic looking violence towards human-like characters, and use of mild bad language. Characters have little or no reaction to the violence. However, a health bar above their heads indicates their current status. When their health bar has been depleted, their bodies fall to the floor where they immediately vanish, leaving behind various loot items. The vast majority of the violence is inflicted with firearms. However, special abilities and melee attacks can also be used. Regardless of the type of violence used, the reactions to the violence always remain the same. This game also contains infrequent use of mild bad language. The Greek word “Skata” can be found in the game's dialogue.

ESRB TEEN for mild language and violence.

Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.
