"One of the most fun co-op games I have played in a long time!" - Tom Vasel (The Dice Tower)
"The enemies are just monstrous and difficult!" - Rodney Smith (Watch it Played)
In XenoShyft Onslaught players take on the role of a commander in the NorTec Corporation. You're tasked with defending your division of the NorTec base as wave after wave of horrific aliens attempt to destroy the base and end NorTec's strip mining operation.
1 - 4 players - Single player compatible, fully cooperative gameplay.
Strong focus on coordination and strategic planning - to overcome the game's intense difficulty players will need to work together.
Base-Defense with deck-building elements
Incredible art - Illustrated by three amazing artists, XenoShyft features beautiful and consistent art. All of which creates one cohesive and frightening universe.
Inventive and exciting armor and weapon upgrade cards - You'll need to outfit your troops with the best equipment if you hope to survive.
Xenoshyft is a game for 1-4 players, with each player controlling one of the divisions of the Nortec military: The Science Labs, Med Bay, Armory, Weapon's Research, Barracks and Command Center. Each of these divisions represents one part of the overall Nortec base, and it is your job as Commander of these divisions to protect the base while its field operations are completed.
You and your teammates will have to work together to survive the continuous onslaught of powerful alien threats and horrors – the goal of the mission is not to wipe out these threats, it is merely to outlast them!
Survive through nine rounds of combat with these horrors and the base will have succeeded in its mission, and you and your allies will have survived to fight another day!
Damage prevention will now only be removed after an Advancement phase.
Items with an asterisk denoting the wave number now will show the asterisk instead of the converted value.
Fixed an issue where Low Quality textures would not be properly used when the setting was on. (Should fix crashes in older devices)
Fixed a bug when randomizing Divisions for a new game.
Fixed a couple of issues with the tutorial.
Added an opt-in Dialog for analytics, crash logs, etc; default is now opt-out.
Added Privacy option in the Options menu.
Ratings and Reviews
Potential But Too Many Issues
This app has a lot to love, good art and animations, smooth flow, and a good core engine.
Too bad no one at CMON apparently ever played this game. This game is beyond hard, in many ways it is impossible to win. One example, in wave one, you could get a combination of two enemies that can nullify most of you attacks, this means in round one, through no fault of your own, you can lost half or more of your bases hp against the easiest wave, and that is just one example. The game is littered with impossible combinations. Once you get the engine down you should be able to get to round 7 consistently, but anything beyond that is all up to the random gods.
I even bought some expansions in hopes it would make the game winnable. No luck there.
In addition the app is buggy, constantly freezing and forcing you to close, save, and restart.
So here is an app that should be getting four or even five stars getting two because CMON doesn't seem to care. Too bad.
Ver 2.0.2 crashes after deploy phase.
Updated review for 2.0.2. iPad 4 iOS 10.3.3 - Sigh...game STILL crashes but after deployment phase. The game worked FLAWLESSLY on my iPad until I purchased the Dreadmire expansion. Not only did I lose access to a good game I purchased, but I lost all the money I've spent buying the expansions. Please fix this crash and give me back my beloved game! I now rate this a 1.
After updating and buying the dreadmire expansion the game no longer loads. After setting up a game, It crashes and closes immediately after 'initializing decks' if I use multiple divisions or expansions. 5 star for a great game, 2 stars because I can't play it.
Game is fantastic, hands down. That's not in debate. The app is buggy though. You can't draw any of the free troops to fill your line, and if the screen ever locks, you can't proceed. It won't allow item selection when you unlock the screen. 😞 Very sad, as this awesome game needs more exposure, bad exposure may kill it prematurely though.
