Hydorah - side scrolling space shooter

#1 Post by webfork » Tue Apr 28, 2020 12:28 pm

Hydorah is a non-linear horizontal shmup with a large library of levels, enemies and unique situations. The difficulty is based on the 80s standards, so it requires practice in order to progress. New weapons are unlocked as you progress through the campaing, while firepower can be increased during the missions. Graphics are visually clean to favor the gameplay, but they're highly polished to show the personality of each level in detail. Gryzor87 used legendary synthesizers to create a huge soundtrack full of retro-futuristic, powerful and sometimes dark themes. Levels design and music has been composed together, so they fit each other like a glove.

INFLUENCES
Hydorah is the bastard son of a hundred classics. It has the genes of big sagas like Gradius, R-Type, Darius or Turrican but also the ones of not so well-known titles like Enforcer, Space Manbow, Hellfire, X-Multiply, Guardian, Hydefos, Armalyte and more than 100 games from many platforms that have been thoroughly studied to distill the best of them.
