Play Ray’s Game: Hyper Fire

Hyper Fire

TimApparently Ray made this game some time in college called Hyper Fire (actually it had no name, so he named it the other day). We had a good time playing it, seeing how high we could get our scores, so we thought we’d share it with you guys too. For a simple game made by a guy who knows essentially no programming, it’s got a few nice touches like the music and the death animation. There’s a potentially frustrating, but hilarious bug in there. Can you figure out what it is? Just refresh your page if it’s too much of a problem.

Feel free to post some high scores in the comment section and let us know what you think of the game!

  3. Rokai says:

    It’s damn hard….450 points.

  4. cramill says:

    Fun little game!

    Before I figured out what the bug was, i could only get 1,000 points max, but after that I was able to get up to a score of at least 6,000.

  5. RedVinnie says:

    its way too hard for me. whats the bug?

  6. The_Composer says:

    It’s not loading for me.

  7. Dominator_101 says:

    Dang, only 12200. Not enough to beat Tim’s…

  8. Betta splenden says:

    It’s not loading…

    Errrm yeah, I see what you mean. After a few deaths you’re confronted with endless streams of alien bullets. I made the mistake of opening it in a new tab and then switching to it after a while, so I thought that it was meant to be that fast at first. Only got 550 points!

    Much easier after a reload, though perhaps not quite as much fun as the insane death dealing.

    (My first post!) My high score is 5800, which I dont think is too bad. Game has a good soundtrack, I like it! It would be interesting to see a new game that you guys would make. Great job!

  11. mocliamtoh says:

    Not too shabby. I got 1500…after I refreshed…*sniff*

  12. Oliver Strano says:

    Hey, this is great. I only got 1000 or so the first two times, but after that I steadily increased to about 5000 in my sixth or so go. Pretty fun. What year did you make it?

  13. Unclever title says:

    I managed 1400. This thing is bonkers fun!

    But yeah… The first time I opened it I was distracted with something else so when I looked at it I’m like “What the-? Game over!?”

    But then I died about 7 times in a row and now I’m getting the hang of it.

    Epic game.

    The Bug’s what makes it awesome.

  14. RedVinnie says:

    i finaly got 14500! it took me all day, but i got it.

  15. augh. I died of dysentery. I mean, I only got 2600.

  16. Tacos says:

    6400 is my best as of now.

  17. Noodle says:

    :\ 450

    Way too fast for me :P

  18. Rokai says:

    I managed to get 2050 points! Cool game.

  19. Tacos says:

    Got 7850 this time.

  20. Tacos says:

    Ok, right after I submit that, I get 23,400!!!!! I think that’s the highest so far.

  21. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Nice! It’s simple, but addicting. I have to say though, the bug is actually pretty cool. I only played it a tiny bit, so my best score is about 2000.

    By the way, what program was this made with? Or was it made using multiple programs?

  22. hyper says:

    i got it to 7k but kept dying T.T

  23. Pieninja14 says:

    I haven’t played much, so I only got about 2000. However, this is a pretty good game, especially for how simple it is. It feels kinds of like a good Atari game: Simple, but still fun to play.

    I really like the glitch; it punishes you for failing.

    I think you could work on programming a little bit more, add extra lives, a couple more enemy types, maybe some backgrounds, and it would be a full fledged game, in my opinion. I like.

    Also, if you did that, have a glitch mode where you could have the glitch on.

    I doubt you’ll do this, but still. I can post, can’t I?

    And put a barrel roll function in the game. That would make it perfect.

    How did Ray make this? You mentioned on the blurb that he has no Programming Skills, but then it’s an .swf file meaning he probably used Flash?

    I’m kinda into the Freeware Independent Game scene, especially watch out for the Independent Games Festival.

  26. vincecult says:

    i scored 100! it took me like 3 deaths to get all 3 of the controls down. im proud enough of my 100 to leave it at that. this game is better than half the wii games. put it on wiiware. haha

  27. ultimateDK says:

  36. Mikallein says:

  37. Supersonic24 says:

    6,150 is my score. After playing for so long, it looked like my screen was moving like a wave. Weird….

  38. Retl says:

    Hyper Fire Update Suggestion: If possible, have cursor based controls to allow for gameplay with the Wii. It’s not much different from what someone else above suggested, but that’s an idea.

  39. Desymise says:

    I got over to 50,890! One my 19th try though…

  40. Mr. Saxaphone says:

    My high score was500, after you die allot its more like navigating thru a maze of colorful bullets.

  41. shockwave527 says:
