Alawar Entertainment, Inc., a leading publisher of casual games, and iSquared Games, a London-based video games development company specializing in console titles, are announcing the release of Hyperballoid HD for the PlayStation 3. The game is now available exclusively through the PlayStation Network in Europe for the price of 3.99 EUR. North American and Asian releases are forthcoming.
Hyperballoid HD puts a surreal spin on a classic arcade style, inviting players to smash their way through one hundred unique and challenging levels contained within two visually stunning game worlds. This addictive game includes a unique trophies system and supports 1080p high-definition graphics as well as all standard resolutions. With outrageous animation, smooth controls, over-the-top power-ups, a bass-heavy techno soundtrack, and realistic physics developed exclusively for the PS3, Hyperballoid HD truly is a next-gen brick breaker.
“Hyperballoid HD is the second Alawar Entertainment game available on the PlayStation Network,” says Kirill Plotnikov, vice-president of publishing. “We’re developing even more console and mobile games, including several titles slated for release on Sony platforms next year.”
“Alawar Entertainment is a valued partner of iSquared Games, and we’re excited about our latest collaboration, Hyperballoid HD,” says Igor Makaruks, CEO of iSquared Games. “Alawar has a long history of developing and publishing exciting state-of-the-art titles, and we’re looking forward to our future collaboration with them. Following the worldwide release of Hyperballoid HD, we hope to continue to develop the kinds of games for which Alawar has become renowned.”
Hyperballoid HD is based on the popular Hyperballoid casual game that Alawar originally developed for PC. Alawar’s first PSN release, Magic Ball, was released in January 2009 and remained on the service’s top-ten best-seller list for two months.
