Undergoing a secret experimental journey, the spaceship Aknathen detects an energy spectrum identical to the one emitted by its prototype weapon, the XG Blast! Travelling to investigate, Aknathen is sucked through a wormhole and into a dimension filled with aggressive alien life-forms determined to take the weapon for themselves. Fight your way through hordes of enemies to uncover the origin of the mysterious signal and find your way back home.
XG Blast! has the classic feel of other retro shooters with further enhancements such as maps with alternate routes to victory, including a host of multi-player features. XG Blast! encompasses polished graphics and deep, modernised gameplay features that are easy to pick up and hard to put down. Accelerate to warp speed with a multitude of enemies, gather huge power-ups and experience the intriguing story mode throughout the campaign. Also, for the first time ever, XG Blast! will let players battle across a variety of maps in multiplayer modes such as Double Dream Co-op mode and Full War death matches.
