Xenon - Atari ST [021] PlayThru

Title Screen
NOTE: A trainer was used for making this capture.

Ah, Xenon from the Bitmap Brothers.  I barely touched this game back in the day, as I was mainly playing, well losing, at Xenon II Megablast.  Although, I might have actually played the boot disk even more for the sampled intro that was included.

From what I know, this game does not end, just like Commando; the game just cycles back to the beginning once the player completes the last stage. 

For those who do not know, Xenon is a multi plane plane shooter, two planes to be exact.  The graphics are nice, the music is good, and there are sound effects, besides a little digitized speech!

I am not really good at shooters, but the difficulty in this game seems about right.

I would recommend this game, a nice entry on the ST from the Bitmap Brothers!

This gameplay was captured on May 31, 2018.

Game was played on an Atari 1040 STf, TOS 1.4, 1MB, equipped with a CosmosEX from Jookie.
A Best Electronics ST Monitor to VGA cable was used, connected to an OSSC 1.6 (processing the video in Line4x mode), with the output being captured by a Startech USB3HDCAP.

Video was edited with Shotcut.
