"Not just another shoot'em up"

Reviewed by / Jun 14, 2012

Xelorians Free is a frenzied vertical space shooter

Action, frenetic game pace: words to describe this retro-inspired space shooter. Although gameplay is taken from the classic space shooters of the early 80's, rhythm, graphics and controls have been optimized to be played on mobile devices.

Your goal is to blast Xelorian invaders through 6 different stages in your Homeworld (Red Baron, episode 2 is coming soon). You're alone on the command of a spaceship which can be updated by taking items that the Xelorians invaders drop when their units explode.

Although graphics are retro-inspired, they've updated: 3D background environments and explosion effects are the proof of it. Likewise, there's an automatic camera zooming that makes it overcoming the space shooter quality standards. To control the spaceship hold the indicator with your finger and move around, it automatically shoot and change weapon when you grab it (there are up to 8 different weapons). Such easy. We specially like that when you release your finger, the game pause.

There are up to 30 types of different enemy units, 4 difficulty levels, 6 stages and final bosses in each. Storyline, graphics and game pace makes it one of the best space shooters on the market. Go and get it.

●●●●●● Story ●●●●●●
Due to the technological development and discovery of the red matter in 2021, colonization of Mars became a fact. Developing the new time theory enabled controlling its existing form. The world has changed thanks to that! Machines which slow down the time are a permanent element of the human life.

In 2026, just after establishing the EIA (Earth Interplanetary Alliance) and determining the space law, people started to make regular trips into space. Thanks to the minerals obtained during the explorations of other planets, the technological development continues to pick up pace.
15 years later, at the beginning of 2036 after intercepting an unusual signal from an unknown civilization, the EIA Ministry assigned all its financial and logistic resources in order to make another contact..

Unfortunately, the Xelorians turned out to be uninterested in the diplomatic contact with humans and the only activity which they were willing to take towards human beings was to begin military action.

The First Contact War began in 2037.

Thanks to the diversifying actions we found out that the foreign race, the Xelorians as they would call themselves, had expansive intentions.
After a biophysical analysis of a captured alive Xelorian, our scientists found out that the destructive genes in those species were assimilated in their DNA artificially, thus we can be certain there is something of the very unknown and unimaginable to the human race behind the invasion.

However, the foreign race committed a huge mistake. They have misestimated their chances not knowing what the humans are capable of. Although the human civilization is coming to a destruction point, people have come together as never before.

Physicists have discovered the source of supply of the foreign units. They are the crystals of Xelors which in most cases are undamaged during destruction. The physicists have developed provisional mechanisms which can reinforce the kinetic properties of specific weapons when implemented into them.

You are an airman of a standard EIA hybrid unit of the 5th generation.
Current aim: resist and prevent the attack on Earth

    This game gets it. Smooth, intuitive controls. Overwhelming ememies matched only with flatteringly destructive and crucially frequent super weapons. Addictive and pleasurable. This game has flair in bucket loads.
