Who hasn’t wanted to really tear apart a toy store? The viral hit Hypercharge Unboxed now makes it possible.

Update from 07/31/2022: Good news for all Hypercharge Unboxed fans. The viral toy shooter, which has been making the rounds in the gaming community for the past few weeks, is also set to be released for the Sony PS5. Developer Digital Cybercherries announced this on Twitter. When the wild hustle and bustle will make it to the PS5 is not yet known.

Original message from 05.07.2022: Hamburg – Do you remember when Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang had to break into the Toy Barn to rescue fellow cowboy Woody? That’s exactly what a few clever developers have now basically programmed a full-blown shooter from. The toy fun goes by the name of Hypercharge Unboxed and has little to do with Toy Story 2 in terms of play. The viral hit on Twitter is more like a fresh version of Halo.

There is enormous potential for the future in Hypercharge Unboxed

What does Hypercharge Unboxed offer? Hypercharge Unboxed has certainly not yet played out its full potential. Anyone who throws themselves into the toy shooter can currently prove themselves in a kind of horde mode in which they defend a hyper core with up to three friends. There is also a classic PvP mode that should remind quite a few of the genre leader Halo. Another mode called “Survive” is planned for Hypercharge Unboxed in the future.

The possibilities for expanding every 90’s kid’s wet video game dream should also be tremendous. Hypercharge Unboxed is currently still targeting fictional action figures – but players are already imagining what would happen if the many rows of the toy store were filled with real brands. The freely designable game characters are also crying out for a franchise, as Fortnite has been pushing for years.
