It's been over 8 months since Decimation X was released, and we are still getting favorable reviews! Decimation X has received a 9.5/10 average on XBLA & XBLIG Ratings.
A re-cap of some of our XBLA & XBLIG Ratings reviews:
...the animation on the other hand runs smoothly with little to no hiccups.
When the bullet hell starts to progress you witness a lot of explosions, bullets, fast aliens, and little to no defensive barriers protecting you. As you can shoot your own defensive barriers they can shoot them too.
Everything about Decimation X screams arcade cabinet fun as you see all the retro colored aliens and the colorful display of explosions.
Decimation X is a perfect example of pick up and play arcade mayhem.
Decimation X has to be one of the most fun retro take backs on the Indie marketplace. For only 80 Msp, I dare say everyone who has ever played and enjoyed a 2D shooter will have a blast quite literally as well. The faults in Decimation X are minimal and don’t ruin it in any way. You cannot go wrong with this fantastic take on Space Invaders.
That is all.
