The 80’s was known as the golden era of arcade games. These arcade games set the foundation for the video gaming industry that we see today. Almost all the games which we play nowadays are more complex versions of different arcade games.
Super Xevious® is an arcade game and is a sequel to a scrolling shooter arcade game called Xevious. It is an upgrade to the original version, making it more difficult and adding a new set of enemies to the mix.
The gameplay is very much like the original Xevious except this time it is a little more difficult. Several new enemies are introduced in this game, including a silver Galaxian flagship, a rare silver Galaga scorpion ship, two jet planes, a helicopter, and a dark yellow Tank Battalion tank. The player pilots a combat aircraft called a Solvalou, which is armed with a forward-firing Zapper for aerial targets and a Blaster which fires an unlimited supply of air-to-surface bombs for ground targets.
There are various aerial enemy aircraft which shoot relatively slow bullets, as well as (presumably unpiloted) fast-moving projectiles and exploding black spheres. Ground enemies are a combination of stationary bases and moving vehicles, most of which also fire slow bullets. Giant floating Andor Genesis mother ships appear in certain areas; these are killed by knocking out their cores.
The Solvalou (aircraft) continually advances over varying terrain, and the boundaries between areas are marked only by dense forests. As the Solvalou constantly flies forward, it is possible to advance without killing any enemies.
The game scrolls through 16 areas, looping back to Area 7 after Area 16. If the player dies, play normally resumes from the start of the area. If the player has completed at least 70% of the area before dying, play will begin at the start of the next area instead.
Interface and Controls
The interface and controls are very simple. Just use the arrow keys to navigate the aircraft and a control button to shoot at the enemy.
Super Xevious® is a better version of Xevious®. Its graphics and game play are almost similar to games that we play nowadays.Free Download
