Hybris was one of my favourite Amiga games, a cool shooter where you could upgrade your ship and transform it. Terra Cresta seems to be a major influence on Hybris, as it has all of the same mechanics, and similar graphics.

    Got the score 45500 in MAME. Got him! I have to be careful to always look at my actual ship for dodging bullets, not any of the extension parts.

    It's tricky to get anywhere in this game, as you have 3 lives and then you start over from the beginning. You do earn extra lives along the way, and there are continue points throughout the game. So I guess I just have to play better.

    I finally managed to install a driver and get a working setup with my PS4 controller connected to my PC via Bluetooth, allowing control of MAME through DS4Windows. It works flawlessly.

    Got the score 45500 in MAME. I love that there is a special jingle before launching the final ship.
