DENVER, Sept. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SPYR, INC. (OTCQB: SPYR), a holding company with wholly owned subsidiaries in both the mobile game & app development and publishing industry, and in the restaurant industry, today announced the worldwide launch of the Hivespawn Expansion, a major update to its flagship game, Pocket Starships.

SPYR previously announced that it would be releasing a major update to Pocket Starships this fall; and that update has arrived.

Pocket Starships' New Hivespawn Expansion Now Available

The Hivespawn Expansion represents a significant expansion of the game.  The Hivespawn are a new enemy alien race that can be fought across brand new player vs. environment instances with three mission types and three difficulty settings.  This additional race also brings new enemy ships to the game and a challenging boss encounter, with new equipment to be earned that will play a big part in Pocket Starships' main player vs. player gameplay.  Moreover, as a mutual enemy of both original factions, the Varians and the Shards, the Hivespawn inject a new dynamic into the game: is the enemy of my enemy my friend?

Pocket Starships, with the Hivespawn Expansion, can currently be downloaded and played at the following links:
