Description (by MrFlibble)

Hypercycles is a racing/combat game similar to Tron that uses a pseudo-3D first-person perspective very much like that in Wolfenstein 3D. The story of the game is set in a virtual environment called The Grid, which is controlled by the evil Dr. Devaro. Many brave hypercycle riders challenged the doctor, only to be defeated and join his legions. Will you be able to claim victory against all odds?

In Hypercycles, the player navigates mazelike arenas, trying to find keys to the level exit and useful items, all the while being hunted by enemy riders and other hostile creatures. Some levels contain upgrades for the player's hypercycle, first allowing to control movement speed, then adding weapons and shields and the ability to lay a trace of walls, all of which can be used against enemy raiders and other hostiles. Due to engine limitations, the cycle can only turn by 90 degrees.

Hypercycles was marketed as shareware, with the unregistered version containing only five levels out of 30 in the full game.
