Hyper Universe has made some twists in the core features of MOBA genre since it's a side-scrolling game. Unlike traditional point-and-click control scheme used for most MOBAs, Hyper Universe uses the "WASD" buttons to play. Besides, the game has 3 lanes, which are connected by ladders (you can see it in the video above and below).
Only six towers are found on the map, and on the center lane where most of the action happens, there are NPCs for jungling. A boss is located on both the upper and lower lanes. There are over 30 heroes, many of whom are inspired by popular characters and pop culture across the world.
