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.

to run hyperspeed, use dosbox. Place Hyperspeed in your c:\ directory. Open dosbox and type, "mount c c:\hyperspeed" hit enter. type "c:" hit enter. type "hyper"
the game will play. you must have the manuel to input the word for the copyright or the game will freeze when the N key is pressed or when spin drive is engaged. To play the game without freezing, you must enter the word from the manuel.

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

Hyperspeed manual is easily found online.

thank you copyright fascists, great win having to pay for a 25 year old game.

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, but is not functional due to copyright protection.

I changed the game archive with a already patched one.

JAY DEE 2014-10-22 0 point DOS version

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

admin 2014-10-14 -1 point DOS version

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

Guest 2014-10-13 0 point DOS version

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

Bohabhazard 2014-09-16 0 point DOS version

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.

Hyperspeed manual is incomplete.

Split 2014-01-18 0 point DOS version

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.; 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.
