About The Game

Xexex is an horizontally scrolling arcade video game shoot-em-up.

Fly the Flintlock TMF01 across several beautifully drawn stages and help save the Planet E-Square! A great game featuring some very large ships, lots of raster effects and one neat charge-shot.

Trivia

King Records released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Xexex : Konami Kukeiha Club - KICA-7508) on 21/01/1992.

Updates

The Japanese version has lives (with re-spawn points) instead of a life-bar and a much larger variety of weapons.
