Hyphen is a must have addition to any puzzle/action game lover’s collection. Navigate a rotating stick through intricate and fiendish neon mazes while trying to avoid the walls and obstacles. Although it sounds extremely simple, it’s fun and infuriatingly challenging at the same time. Coupled with an awesome soundtrack and gorgeous glowing visuals this game will blow your mind in more ways than one.

Kuru Kuru Kururin anyone? Not complaining though, I loved that game.

Although Hyphen has a spinning stick in it, the gameplay differs quite a lot from that in Kuru Kuru Kururin. We have insta death for starters, no lives and health restoration and the focus is mainly on the difficulty. There's no messing around with storylines and cutesy characters, we've made this game to be a challenge. There are a lot of games with a spinning stick mechanic like this and all of them are actually based on an old japanese carnival game called Kururin, the idea of a spinning stick isn't exclusive to Kuru Kuru Kururin. That said if you did enjoy Kuru Kuru Kururin then Hyphen is definitely worth a download and play to see for yourself.

I played the demo a bit today, good stuff! It's extremely frustrating in the "Dammit I WILL beat the level this time, I know it!" kind of way. The visuals are spot on for this kind of game and I like the audio work. Keep it up guys :)

Thanks a lot! Really happy to hear you like it so far. You'll beat the levels you have just got to keep at it! :D

Thankyou :) We agree on the sound. We have a very talented guy doing the soundtrack called Andrew Lloyd and we couldn't be happier with what he's done for us. Yes, Hyphen is created for those who like a challenge (cool that you do, me too). We've tried to capture the old style of video game challenge and drag it kicking and screaming into an otherwise modern looking/sounding game that doesn't hold your hand all the way to the end. It starts off relatively simple just so you can get used to the controls and flow of gameplay but it soon ramps up and makes you work for your level progression!
