Fight the Xatax, the 25th century alien force!
Xatax is a top notch left to right sidescroller shooter game, in which you control a little yet very powerful ship, in the ongoing fight against the eponymous enemy, the Xatax, which are an alien race, of the 25th century, which wants nothing more than to see your ships destroyed. It's fun to sink into, a great deal of fun to play, has a whole load of power ups and upgrades to use at your own leisure and so on. Overall, Xatax is a beautiful game, surely well produced, with beautiful graphics, and more than anything, a game that knows how to keep itself really playable and offer you a satisfying set of graphics and a great set of levels. What you might feel that it lets you down with, is the fact that the enemies, individual and in their arrangements are a bit too common, after a while; however that too is alright, as this is a game that sets in a grove, and is more relaxing than engaging. Which is not to say that the alien invaders won't put a fight, but if you play well you get a whole load of great weapons, so most of the time you won't feel in danger. Similarly, yet much more difficult, the crazy difficult R Type is the game to try when you really want to get a mighty challenge!
