    This Shoot Them Up offers a truly exhilarating gaming experience, its flawless artistic achievement, intuitive controls and the diversity of its arsenal will be its major strengths. It is perfectly accessible to all types of players via its easy mode but will certainly give trouble to the veterans of the genre.

    Super Hydorah is a solid retro-style shooter, with plenty of weapons, enemies and bosses, nice levels and almost perfect touch controls.

    A brilliantly well put together old school shooter that's going to scratch all of your blowing-things-up itches.

    The thing to know about Super Hydorah is that it’s a game that checks the boxes in all of the right places. It’s a side-scrolling shooter with a retro feel, but just enough of its own clever ideas to make it stand out. It may not have a difficulty curve that makes sense, and its story may be very weak, but those things don’t register as problems while you’re playing it. Instead, you focus in on the tight controls, classic presentation, and inventive level design that makes this simple shooter formula work.

    With its splendid mock 16-bit graphics (that come complete with a simulated CRT mode), chiptunes, a save system that lets you continue but resets your score, and an easy difficulty that gives you three layers of recharging shield, it’s tough but fair in the way that modern versions of old school shooters tend to be. This is a quality offering and easily amongst the best available for touchscreen devices.

    It plays and controls well in a nice and frantic pace that should keep you on your toes for long play sessions. Super Hydorah is a very pleasant tribute to the classics of a bygone era.
