Hyper Gauntlet: The Legacy of Nozzlethrust III is a manic-paced arcade first person infinite runner influenced by Super Hexagon, BIT.TRIP Runner, Wipeout and Temple Run. Players control an invisible force in an abstract and minimalist arena, constantly hurtling forwards through gaps between blue and red obstacles. As obstacles are passed and the score increases, the player runs faster and faster. To help them in their never-ending race, the player can slow down time for a few seconds to dodge through a particularly tricky section. The game rewards you for making split-second decisions and never taking the easy way out. It is currently in Late Alpha stages, and will soon be entering Early Beta.

Alpha Reviews:
It’s the sort of thing you don’t stop playing until long after your day’s responsibilities have rotted or left you a series of very angry text messages. And then after that, it sits in the back of your skull, screaming to the forefront every time you blink, colorful squares rushing by behind your eyelids like midnight traffic. - Nathan Grayson, Rock, Paper, Shotgun

Give Hyper Gauntlet 10 seconds of your time, and if you’re not gripped by then, fair enough, move on with your life. Otherwise, welcome to the leaderboards! - Chris Priestman, IndieStatik

My evening’s been lost to this reflex-based tunnel-racer. - Julian Benson, PC Games N
