While Xyphr may seem, from its screenshot, to resemble such classic games as Space Harrier, Afterburner, Top Gun, or even Blue Lightning, its good looks belie its extremely limited gameplay. As your ship flies forward in a pseudo-3D perspective, various enemies appear for you to shoot. However the controls and torrid pace of the game make it seem like a rather futile exercise. Decent graphics (especially for its time) but unlikely to hold your interest for very long.
