DOS - 1991
Description of Hyperspeed
Lightspeed and Hyperspeed are without a doubt two of the most underrated space sims of all time designed by celebrated Gunship 2000and F-15 Strike Eagle III designer Andy Hollis.
Although billed as "adventure/strategy" games, they are actually space sims with some adventure game elements. Still, categorization quibbles can't hide the fact that they are two of the very best-- with fluid animations, cool ships, and great interface.
In all, great space exploration sims that follow in the venerable Elite tradition. Highly recommended.

Don't be an entitled jerk, it's not like they're asking 20$ for it its super cheap, and comes with a complete manual
Not everyone is comfortable with the moral grey area of abandonware

It seems that the download has been disabled. Why? Did whoever own the rights file a DCMA takedown?
FWIW this is up on the MS-DOS archive site at https://archive.org/details/msdos_Hyperspeed_1991, but is not functional due to copyright protection.

running hyperpeed.bat dosn't work,it still asks questions from the second half of the manual and if you get them wrong it still runs but you can't access the nav screen(n key)so you're stuck.i'm using d-fend by the way

@GUEST It's why you have the crack into the game archive ;) Run "hyperspd.bat"

Cant get past the copyprotection and the manual is not helpful for finding the correct words :/

Funny, every time I load the Game, when it goes to the Main Menu it automatically clicks on Enter New Cluster, I don't get it.

I have the original manual. All 112 pages. If there is still any interest, I can get screen shots or scans of all of the pages, as having a word doc doesnt really help with finding the word on a specific line. Freenbeen@gmail.com; let me know. Thanks all! I'm having a blast in the Ragnarok Cluster.

The copy protection asks for words from sections of the manual that are not there. For instance "Section 7.1.6" - but the manual only goes up to section 4.9.
