[News] [PC]

Well not quite. Alienware and Intel, have collaborated to bring us Hyperblast – a sc-fi themed web game. Hyperblast lets players race and blast their way through a virtual, 3-D space track to win some stunning prizes.

Yes, it's all very exciting isn't it? No wait, the exciting part is the fact that they will feature a weekly draw for exclusive Hyperblast t-shirts, players who push it to the limit and complete the final track will also be eligible to enter the grand prize draw. What's the grand prize? Read on friends...

 The grand prize is a fully loaded Alienware Area-51 m9750 extreme gaming notebook with Intel Core 2 Duo processor worth £2,000!

The AlienWare Area-51 m9750

  • 17 inch notebook in stealth black
  • 1920x1200 Clearview LCD
  • Windows Vista Home Premium
  • Intel Core Duo 2 processor T7600 2.33Ghz
  • Dual 512MB Nvidea GeForce Go 7950 FTX - SLI enabled
  • 2GB Dual Channel DDR2 RAM
  • 120GB SATA Hard Drive
  • 7.1 Digital High-Definition Audio capable
  • Internal Intel PRO Wireless 3945 a/b/g Mini-Card
  • Internal Intel PRO Wireless 4965 b/g/n Mini-Card
  • Integrated Bluetooth 2.0


Hyperblast provides three different futuristic tracks on which players must race against tenacious AI drones. Tactically the player may avoid enemy drones for an optimum lap time or use one of several power-ups available to destroy the opposition for bonus points.

Progressive tracks become even more challenging but fortunately the player can upgrade with Intel multi-core technology to become more powerful and destructive – necessary for competitive high scores – just like real life!

Actually the game is like a simplified WipeOut and since I played that for hours and hours...and hours. I did pretty well and it only took 3 shots to finish the last track


Find out who’s top dog in the office. League functionality is built into the game enabling groups of friends or colleagues to compete against each other in their own private Hyperblast league.


  • Qualifying for the Quad Core track unlocks weekly prize draw of 20 Hyperblast t-shirts.
  • Completing the Extreme Edition track unlocks the Alienware Area-51 m9750 notebook grand prize draw.
  • Multiplayer league functionality.
  • Cutting-edge 3-D Flash web game


Hyperblast requires Adobe Flash 9 and is compatible with all major web browsers. Due to the 3D graphics the game is more processor intensive than many web games and runs best on an Intel Core 2 family processor. Of course because it's sponsored by Intel!

The competition is open to residents of European Union member states, Norway and Switzerland. (Sorry America neener-neener-neener!) The grand prize draw will be held on 29th February 2008. Entrants must provide email details to enter prize draws and winners will be notified via email. Further communications are on a strict opt-in basis.

Full terms and conditions are available here:

Oh, and just in case you think you can get that laptop, forget it. It's MINE! (See Below)
