Hyper Universe Online is a new side-scrolling MMORPG currently in development by CWAVESOFT. I recently had a chance to test out the Alpha version of the game and recorded some gameplay clips below.
Hyper Universe Online focuses a lot more on the "jungle" mechanics of the game because it only has towers on the middle lane which includes the main base tower or should I say nexus. In short, the game only has a total of SIX towers! Most of the action will happen in the middle lane while the rest of the team is farming the jungle on both the top and bottom lanes. There are super creeps on the sides of the map along with a big minion that spawns in the bottom half of the map along with a super dragon boss minion on top of the map. Players must equip items before the match and upgrade them from level 0~5 during each match.
Hyper Universe has a lot of characters that may have you saying "Hmmm, I've seen this character before..." like that Strider Hiryu style character, Miss Fortune, Power or Sentai Ranger, Rengar, Dragon Nest Archer, Bruce Lee with Tekken Forest Law moves, and more. You can see the full character list here, if you're interested. Players can rebind all of their hotkeys and movement keys, which is nice as some of you are probably used to pressing "qwerty" for skills or 1 through 5. Graphics looks good and I am eager to test the game again, but the lag makes the game not very Foreigner-friendly and unplayable. I'm sure the ping is fine for those living in South Korea, but I'm just giving heads up for those that are planning on participating in future CBT and such. I will keep you guys posted on the next CBT and if the lag is fixed, until then meows!
