Xevious is another retro video game I am reviewing thanks to the Namco Museum Collection 1 on the Evercade systems. Xevious is a well known arcade shooter. The version of Xevious included on the Namco Museum Collection 1 is from the 8-bit NES. The Nintendo Entertainment System version of Xevious does not quite compete with the arcade version. The 8-bit NES is better than the Atari 2600 in terms of emulating and recreating the arcade experience.

Xevious looks decent for its era. There are a lot of thing happening on the screen in Xevious. We are flying overhead and shooting enemies that fly toward us. We are also dropping bombs in front of us to hit objects on the ground. We must always be aware of what is shooting at us from the ground as well as in the sky. This dual element was very challenging back in the day. Gamers had to think about sky and ground at the same time. I remember this game from the arcade. I hope someday we get an arcade version of Xevious on the Evercade.

The music in Xevious is pleasant. I enjoying listening to it and the shooting sounds while trying to stay alive in Xevious. The explosions are reflected well visually and audible in Xevious. As you might expect there are sections of Xevious that can be challenging. The bosses will make you work really hard to take them out. I learned to look for the patterns and attack when I had an opportunity. Xevious can help teach some gamers the concept of patience.

One or two players can play Xevious. I did not test this out personally because I played Xevious for a live stream on the Evercade hand held system. I did not have the Evercade VS system at that time. There is a gameplay video of Xevious on the Family Friendly Gaming website in our videos section. Families will also be able to view the video on our video sites when we get it uploaded. That is a project we are continuing to work on.

My main reaction from Xevious was frustration. This video game is a part of history and many other shooters were influenced by Xevious. The historical aspect of Xevious interests me the most. Xevious is a solid shooter where we blow away plenty of things. The more we blow away the higher our score and easier it is to progress through the levels. My hand did get tired of shooting so many things with the button presses though.
