Xyphr is a sci-fi shooter reminiscent of Space Harrier. The player controls a space craft from a third-person perspective, adjusting the altitude while automatically moving through pseudo-3D environments. The gameplay is rather simple: many hostile ships and other enemies are there to stop the hero, and constantly shooting at them is the only way to survive.

Windows Problems

Xyphr uses the system's internal clock for various timing purposes. Windows 3.0 (and probably other environments) alters the speed of this internal clock, thus, Xyphr should not be run under Windows. It won't cause any harm, but it WILL make the game unplayable on fast computers.
