There are a lot of shoot em’ up games on the internet right now. In fact, there are a lot that are quite fun to play. One of these is known as Xenoraid. The game is all about piloting a spacecraft through waves of enemies and mowing them down. However, Xenoraid brings something different to the table: a delightful and game-changing twist on the genre.
Xenoraid is a thrilling space shooter with classic action and modern features. All you need to do is intercept the alien raiders and keep Earth safe. That sounds like a piece of cake. It is not. There is a twist to this game: instead of piloting one ship, you pilot four.
As the game progresses, you can upgrade and evolve each craft to your liking. Therefore, you might find yourself swapping between a clunky monster brimming with missiles, a quicker craft adept at dodging, a ship built for spraying shotgun shells, and one that takes forever to overheat. The characteristics of each of these four ships are entirely up to you. There’ a caveat, though. You must make sure that none of these ships is shot down. If you lose any of your ships, it is gone for good.
Xenoraid offers classic shooter gameplay with lots of new mechanics. Each mission is different from the last. While in play, you can switch between ships, and there are some cool shooting mechanics, such as diagonal shooting and weapon heat. The campaign itself consists of more than 40 missions, with four boss fights, and a Hard mode for players who like it impossible. There’s also a set of Survival levels which you can replay endlessly.
This game is available for free on both Android and iOS. You can also get the PC version of the game online if you prefer that.
