Hyperspace is a space flight simulation screensaver that allows you to cruise through the far reaches of space, fly between the stars, across oozing cosmic planes, and through endless shimmering tunnels. You can optionally adjust the speed, view depth, field of view, number and size of the stars and the resolution of geometry, and set a limit on the frame rate.

there is a small bug right at the beginning but it looks great

by Syluss on April 7, 2024

Whoa... Just... Whoa. This was better than I thought it would be. Smooth, amazing colors, and plenty of options to change to get what you want.

by C__ub__E on January 25, 2024

Works on multiple monitors. Looks great. Can remove the tunnels. The only thing missing is to remove the rotations or slow them down.

by ForeShadow on January 11, 2024

Works on multiple monitors and looks absolutely incredible!

by T_O on December 4, 2023

this is an extremely good screensaver i could sit and watch it for hours but the only complaint i have is that after enough time the "cosmic goo" stops generating

by phnl25 on October 5, 2023

Really good effect but Hyperspace doesn't drift or go backwards, this sort of ruins the impact to a degree.

by It's great on September 27, 2023

This screensaver very gud.

by Thomas on June 15, 2023

I like a lot, I just wish I had a bit more control over getting it for fly forward or backward rather than banging in every direction like the TARDIS does.

In fact, it kind of needs a TARDIS flip-flopping around to make it even better!

by DR Darke on February 3, 2023

Epic, and it works on both screens

by e on April 28, 2022

This is an awesome SS, set the frame rate to 30 or 40 and it won't heat up your machine, and gives great resolution; plus I have two screens and it works GREAT. love it Kudos to the designer(s)

Too much fast movement and flashing lights, very distracting. Not relaxing.

by Jason on June 15, 2021

It's awesome

by KittenGenocide on May 17, 2021

It starts and locks up after 5 seconds.

by beats on May 7, 2021

Sieht richtig toll aus. Auch mit 3 Screens

by Super on April 23, 2020

Works perfectly on my laptop with Windows 10

by Gabe T on January 19, 2020

Super Bildschirmschoner, klein und fein, mir war wichtig das er ├╝ber mehrere Bildschirme geht und das macht er perfect !! top
dazu kommt noch das er OHNE Maleware ist !!!

by SirAvalon on January 14, 2020

Like the wormhole effect, In and out graphics of hyperspace tunnels.

by Star Pilot on December 3, 2019

Agree - add tick box to disable sweeping/swooping. I want something like the Enterprise going to warp.

I love this screensaver, but it doesn't work on Catalina

by Dan P on November 12, 2019

please add planets yayyy :D

by ilovespace on May 5, 2019

Great concept but the amount of turns and random angle shifts that it makes is sickening and makes it almost unwatchable. There are no settings to determine the angle of motion and turns which is a limitation that makes this screensaver all but unusable. Why does it go backwards? That's stupid... Otherwise great!

by Sam on February 18, 2019

Great except it only runs for a short time, there are no setting to have it run in a loop or longer, would be nice to have the creator inform us on how to make it run longer or even upgrade it. It is free so would not expect a reply. Only gave 4 stars because of that but will give 5+ stars for video display.

by JC on February 15, 2019

It's cool

by Yobiyobi on November 19, 2018

It's terrific. I just wish it could be less swoopy (constantly altering the direction of view) and spinny. Setting it to speed 1 or 2 helps a lot. If it had additional controls for "spinniness" and "swoopiness" it could be much more perfect. I would like to see more forward progression through "hyperspace", fewer spins and banks and turns.

by Rick Brant on October 20, 2018

Sadly will not run

by Mristani on July 24, 2018

This screensaver would be perfect if it weren't for the constant spinning. It's making me dizzy.

by Bubba on April 27, 2018

Download works, just didn't display correctly

by DomiNater543 on April 11, 2018

Pretty good! Quality is high and its very pleasant to look at. Only issue is that its very involved, if it started playing I would pay attention to the screensaver instead of waking my monitor back up.

by Ben on March 12, 2018

Fantastic screensaver but far too many people, like me, are having issues with it on Mac OS Sierra and High Sierra. For me and many others, this screensaver only runs for less than a minute, then the default mac screensaver turns on. Please update this screensaver! Otherwise I love it.

by Daniel on February 5, 2018

This is brilliant! I can't stop watching it

by AS on January 10, 2018

After upgrading to macOS High Sierra the screen saver runs for 3 seconds then the default macOS screen saver starts and Hyperspace goes away. So sad :( WHY did Apple do this?!

Author: Please fix this, PLEASE!

by Damon L. on December 21, 2017

Very nice, works with windows 10 and displays on all my monitors!

by Kyricus on November 21, 2017

When I upgraded my iMac to the High Sierra OS last night, this screensaver stopped working. It runs for about 3 seconds and then it switches to the Mac default screensaver. I talked to Apple tech support and they say that OS 10.13.1 will require some apps like screensaver that aren't fully Mac compliant to be updated. I love this and hope that you can give me an ETA on a new version that works with the newest Mac OS

by Dave on November 10, 2017

Hands down, the best screen saver around. Would love to see an update but the options and detail are phenomenal. Excellent!

by Clark on November 5, 2017

This is the screen save I have ever saw. One word, Brilliant!

by Eushan on October 22, 2017

My favorite at the moment. This is one of the most entertaining to watch. The movement is not unlike that of a roller coaster - and like a roller coaster, this may give ya a li'l bit of dizziness.

by Hanz on May 3, 2017

This......... is........ awesome!!!!!!!

by Bob on February 14, 2017

I hope, somebody will create a "Nebulating Hyperspace" screensaver in future.

by Ram Kumar on January 19, 2017

One of the most visually captivating screensavers I have ever seen. I highly recommend it. Thanks for sharing.

by Richard Lim on November 17, 2016

"Hyperspace has stopped working!" after several seconds.

by mdcclxv on November 9, 2016

It look amazing on two monitors! I recommend this.

by Marek Štafl on November 8, 2016

A stylish and dynamic screen saver.

by The7thFloor on October 26, 2016

Fantastic, in comparison to the rather tired old native screen savers provided. Little has changed since the introduction of the various display transition options for the desktop pictures folder.

by Rodney Sprague on August 25, 2016

This screensaver is awesome! I have a 3 monitor setup and it looks amazing spanning across all 3 monitors. Highly recommend this screensaver!

by John on August 14, 2016

It supports multi-monitor, has a cool aurora. Love it!

by Hunter on August 7, 2016
