    This classic shoot'em-up with a few modern twists is more than just a cheap Galaga clone. And the price is just right.

    If you're a fan of the 2D vertical scrolling shooting games then Xenoraid will undoubtedly be a must buy for you. Priced now at under $10 this game should be on your radar. Yes, there are some hiccups along the way, such as no story, soft play control, and no online multiplayer connectivity, but the customization and build structure of the game lends itself to hours of enjoyment and fun.

    Xenoraid brings some interesting ideas to the genre. Unfortunately, the changes take away from what really defines the genre, leaving it in a sort of limbo between genres. Despite this, Xenoraid remains a fun co-op title with an enticing survival mode.

    Xenoraid is a game that some people will love, and others will hate. The problem is that this dichotomy depends on if a person is good at the game or not.

    Functionally, the game plays fine, but with the lack of any real variety of enemies game to make it interesting for more experienced players, and we now have a bit of an oddity that's not particularly accessible to casual players and is unlikely wow diehard shmup fans either who'd be able to find similar, yet more compelling, shoot-em ups elsewhere.

    If you enjoy space shooters that don't put you in the middle of bullet hell, 10 Tons has released a game that you should check out. XenoraidIf you enjoy space shooters that don't put you in the middle of bullet hell, 10 Tons has released a game that you should check out. Xenoraid is a vertical scrolling schump that puts you in control of a team of space craft trying to save the world from alien destruction.
    The game is fairly straight forward. You start out by outfitting your 4 ships with upgraded weapons and shields, then take off to repel invading forces. Each type of ship has a different load out. From scattershot guns, lasers, EMPs and regular machine guns - you have a full arsenal at your disposal. Jump into your first ship and start destroying the enemy. If you take too much damage, or need another weapon you can easily switch to another ship. If you die, you will automatically jump to the next craft in line.
    There are 3 areas with 5 missions a piece that you must clear. Once you complete a mission, you can use the gold that you collected to repair your fleet or add more upgrades. You will also earn experience for your pilots based on the number of kills they each get. This gives you a reason to rotate through your pilots and learn to use each of them.
    The graphics in the game are spectacular. The backgrounds are beautifully rendered. The miriad of ships that you face are each very distinct in design. The asteroid fields that you encounter are as amazing too look at as they are deadly. The game also features very good sound and music. Your fights will be accompanied by the sounds of guns blasting and great back ground tracks.
    This game is a lot of fun to play and will test your abilities to fly and shoot. Not only is there a story mode, but each planet features a survival mode in which you blast away enemies until you run out of ships. Each planet offers up special challenges for you to battle through.
    Xenoraid is out now for consoles and PC.
