Fly the best jet in the galaxy and demilitarize planets by blowing up their entire combined armed forces,- in front of a never-ending nova sunset.


Juicy Combat

Out-boost your enemies, destroy their individual components, use gravity to your advantage and hyperspace-dodge through projectiles and opstacles when things get too hairy.

All The Loot

Make your jet stronger and stranger by gathering some of the 200+ currently available passive and active items. Use over 80 randomly modified weapons against your opponent, including aerial melee options like swords, whips and punches.

Vicious Opposition

Engage zone specific enemy types in air-to-air and air-to-ground combat. Confront 10 distinct bosses and try surviving beyond that in endless play. Master the base game, then push your piloting skills even further in 12 different challenge modes that can even be combined with another.

Featuring a full score by ENUIT and Ole Toensen.

What do I do in Hyperspace Dogfights?

You fly around in a 2d environment and blow things up. In between enemy waves you get tons of items that modify your jet in various ways. It's an item-based, air-brawler rogue-like where each run is a little different.

Feature list?
- Juicy, impact-full and tense 2d air combat, framed in a weird sci-fi universe
- 5+ player jets to fly, all coming with 2 alternate starting loadouts to unlock
- 180+ different passive items, some providing simple bonuses, some completely changing how your jet behaves
- More then 80 sci-fi jet weapons, including beam weapons, explosives and aerial melee options
- Over 45 active items used for offense, defense or utility
- Strong focus on synergies and weird jet builds. Most items will interact with others, be it in positive and negative ways. All passives can stack with themselves.
- 7 zones with distinct enemy composition to explore
- 10 bosses to die against
- Various wave goals: Hunt ace pilots, raid ground targets, perform recon scans and more
- 12 late game challenge modes that can be freely combined with another
- Colorful pixel art, powered by the Pico8 16 palette
- An adaptive soundtrack with combat and menu tracks, consisting of 14 tunes by ENUIT and Ole Toensen
- Persistent unlocks with lots of items in the loot pool from the get go, but some things only unlockable through the endgame
- Finished runs can seamlessly transition into endless mode if you choose so
