  • Summary: Xotic is more than just killing enemies. Players can compare their shooter skills with their friends’ on the leaderboards as they rack up chain combos by shooting targets like the life-choking Scab plants around each level, picking up Orb Essence, and, yes, blasting enemies.

    Essentially, Xotic is a fun distraction that has the potential to become a great franchise.

    Not perfect, but decent gun-run fun. [Jan 2012, p.103]

    Keep your hands off Xotic. These 800 MSP should rather be invested elsewhere.

    A dissapointing game, based on a strange universe, without a decent story and lackluster gameplay.

    To use an easy analogy crutch, the Xotic aesthetic is what I imagine would come from Terry Gilliam's seed and Tim Burton's egg. The worlds have a distinct, twisted, colorful look. Each space is so littered with warped objects and fluorescent lights, though, that it becomes difficult to separate enemies, point items, and multiplier and damage pickups from the environment.
