Xevious is a vertical scrolling shooter arcade game released by Namco in 1982, and distributed by Atari in North America.
In Xevious you pilot a combat aircraft called a Solvalou. You will fly through a host of flying enemies and land-based obstacles that try to shoot you from the sky. Your mission is to reclaim the enemy-occupied Earth by shooting and bombing the enemy into oblivion. You must skillfully pilot your spacecraft through harder and harder encounters with the enemy.
The Jaguar version of Xevious was written from scratch by Shamus Hammons. It’s a very faithful rendition of the arcade game, and even maintains the proper aspect ratio, which is why black bars are visible on the left and right sides of the screen in the Jaguar version.
One robot remains in the force and it's up to you rescue your fallen robot colleagues. You control the last Robot, Robot Zed. In this demo, you run through a rogue-like, horizontally scrolling base level to find and locate one of the fallen robots, to take back to your base for repairs, so you can use their abilities in future levels. But to find your buddy, you must run through the base and battle the enemy's own robot force.
There are four different robots in total. The standard robot will sometimes supply you with energy when defeated. The other three robots will give you their power once defeated. After you gather their power you can change with down and jump to cycle through your collected powers to pick. Be careful with how much you use them. Every time you use a special power, it'll drain your power tank. Once you run out, you will return back to normal power until you gather more power capsules from those three special enemies.
Good luck in your quest and don't forget to have fun!
