Xevious is a vertical scrolling shooter arcade game released by Namco in 1982, and distributed by Atari in North America.
In Xevious you pilot a combat aircraft called a Solvalou. You will fly through a host of flying enemies and land-based obstacles that try to shoot you from the sky. Your mission is to reclaim the enemy-occupied Earth by shooting and bombing the enemy into oblivion. You must skillfully pilot your spacecraft through harder and harder encounters with the enemy.
The Jaguar version of Xevious was written from scratch by Shamus Hammons. It’s a very faithful rendition of the arcade game, and even maintains the proper aspect ratio, which is why black bars are visible on the left and right sides of the screen in the Jaguar version.
The game has been showcased at several events, including PGRE, however there is currently no ETA on when this will be released.
