With one life only, how long can you survive in a dangerous, random generated, polygon world? Find out in Hypernaut, which is exclusively available for Windows Phone. Avoid everything or die.

Head past the break to watch our hands-on video and gameplay with the Nokia Lumia Icon.

Hypernaut is a very simple endless runner game. You're moving at superfast speeds and you must avoid hitting rocks or polygon shapes. They appear from a distance, but you have to react quickly because you're moving fast.

Hypernaut has two difficulty levels: hard and easy. You can change the difficulty at the bottom of the main menu. The top left corner displays the best times for each level. You can turn off the sound by tapping on the top right side of the main menu. Tap the middle of the screen to get started. Click on the left or right side of the screen to steer away from objects. The screen tilts when you're turning.

We're fans of the visuals and especially like the selection of the colors. Hypernaut reminds us a little bit of the movie, Tron. The world is randomly generated, so it won't feel too repetitive. When you hit something, the game is over. Hypernaut tells you how long you've survived and then you can try again.

We really like Hypernaut and highly recommend it. There are a couple of things we'd like to see in an update. We'd love to be able to turn left or right by tilting our phones instead of tapping on the screen. We'd also like a share button to show off our high scores on Twitter or Facebook.

Hypernaut is a free download from the Windows Phone Store. There are no ads or in-app purchases. Our current high score is 42.14 seconds on the easy level. Go download Hypernaut now and see if you can do better!

Thanks for the tip, Jam8240!
