Review XType Plus (Wii U eShop)
The Citizen Kane of Web Framework games on the Wii U
Note: XType Plus was meant to be released on 31st July along with online leaderboards, but due to a bug in the ranking functionality the game was delayed. It was reinstated on the European eShop on 6th August, and is awaiting a North American release. Nintendo has opened up the floodgates to...
About The Game
Take the pilot seat of the XType attack ship and defeat an ever growing enemy force in this uncompromising Shoot'em'Up. XType Plus combines classic arcade action with a unique and modern look and feel.
The procedurally generated boss battles always provide a new challenge. Each time you defeat a boss, the next one will come back even bigger and meaner. You have to evade hundreds of bullets, lasers and rockets while taking out the enemy part by part.
Compete for the highest score with your friends in a worldwide leaderboard or watch the replays of the world's elite and learn new tricks and techniques.
XType Plus features two different game modes: a zen-like Classic Mode and an action packed Plus Mode with faster movement, EMP Bombs and even more dangerous enemies. Precise dual analog stick controls let you master even the most difficult of situations all while the pumping soundtrack, huge explosions and beautiful effects will put a grin on your face.
I hope pro controller is supported, I hate having to use the rubbish fisher price tablet.
Sheesh, when is this game gonna be out? We haven't heard a peep about it since that Web Framework interview.
Hi you can try it here :
I liked the online one, let's hope this turns out even better!
@sarethums - You can't hear my eyes roll at your comment, but I assure you they are.
@action51 i know now that the pro controller is supported but when i wrote that comment there was no info on controller support.
@sarethums funny, I use the gamepad 90% of the time. Pro controller is too small for my hands. I'd rather have wii remote with pointer controls like geometry war galaxies anyways.
Each to their own but as i am sarethums number 6 on the geometry wars leaderboard before they were taken down i would not advise that. Its a "twin stick" shooter from the ground up.
not that anyone will see this post, but I still play this all the time! So much fun!
