Zotrix is fast paced arcade shooter inspired by early shoot-em-ups of the 80’s and early 90’s, with a unique control scheme and tons of enemies with diverse attack partterns.
You’re tasked with carrying out missions, such as escorting cargo ships, from planet to planet – with you able to pick and choose your route. Complete a mission and you’ll be rewarded hansomeley, with you able to upgrade your ship with decoys, shields, laser boosters or even buy a new, better ship.
The rather unique control system is similar to a twin stick shooter, but with your fire focused on the same spot even if you move. This takes a little getting used to, but is a welcome addition that certainly adds to the experience. Zotrix is more of a classic arcade shooter than a bullet-hell experience. As you progress through a mission, you’ll amass an impressive amount of weaponry, that can eviscerate all but the toughest of enemies. As enemies fly in from all directions your goal it to wipe out as many of them as possible, aiming for a high score and lots of credits.
Feeling a little bit retro and a little bit new at the same time, it’s great fun taking on the waves of colorful pixellated enemies in Zotrix. A satisfyingly hectic retro blaster.
