Hyperspin Attraction, a is sure as shizzle snowballing! Getting bigger and faster by the minute, this Update 2 pack from the MotleyKru is a real beasting! A real credit to all involved to see this Attract Mode for PC Hyperspin-look-a-like on the roll!
HyperSpin focus was always arcade systems so the philosophy was a little different when consoles were added later. The aesthetic favoured default system themes to fill the gap until someone created game themes. What you will find here, as expected, is the same regarding consoles. Game themes if they are available. If not a game will use replicas of the original HyperSpin default system themes with video snap and boxart.
The extra arcade games and systems added have close relation to user feedback and suggestions. Laserdisc games were asked a few times, Tekken series also. Naomi 2 and Taito Type X were included for the challenge; recovering in the process past great work done by alexdc22 and gigapig for the original HS and expand on that.
