Hidden Indie Gem:
...you could even say it’s like Space Invaders on crack.
Starting Decimation X, you’ll instantly notice a 4 player competitive co-op. Yes, the option to have four players on screen at once! Not only is there four player co-op, but at any point you can have someone join the game.
They look great though in all their 8-bit glory on an HD screen. It features some great catchy and upbeat techno music from Imphenzia that fits the fast paced action perfectly.
With Space Invaders gameplay, improvements from the classic, and a price of 80 points, Decimation X is a must buy.
