READ BEFORE PLAYING
X-Type is a crazy space shoot 'em up with endless boss battles. Evade hundreds of bullets while taking out the enemy piece by piece. Each time you defeat a boss, the next one will come back even bigger and meaner. On mobile, control is with dual virtual analog sticks. On desktop in Newgrounds, be sure to center the game-play frame where you want it to be before beginning the game, then click within the game frame (gray area) before clicking "Start Game!" Taking these steps will ensure that your arrow keys can be used for moving your spacecraft (or use AWSD), and using your arrow keys will not cause the outer Newgrounds page to scroll up and down.

Hella nice! Only complaints are that it took a while to acknowledge my input and the hit box could've been smaller.

Thanks for the feedback, xhunterko!

Great game, I'll have to see how it translates to the mobile platform. The tough dodging, gradual growth and strategic targeting work very well together; I keep coming back to see how far I can get. A common complaint I have with bullet hell games is everything being too 'shiny' and indistinguishable, but happily I didn't have that here and it was easy to see all the projectiles coming towards me.
I wouldn't mind seeing the game be a tad more forgiving with respawns, either clearing the bullets away or adding another second or two to the invunerability, it is quite easy to die once and die again before you realise what's going on.
Good stuff


TreSensa responds:

Thanks much for the thorough and thoughtful review, Blinkey! Glad you enjoyed the game. It's pretty awesome on mobile, featuring dual virtual analog sticks.

JamieTreSensa - Most people don't fully read the author comments. It might help if you wrote READ BEFORE PLAYING at the top of the comment box and gave the game instructions after that if you can't fix the problem. As it is you have to go through the game description to get to the most important info. In journalism they call this "burying the lead."


TreSensa responds:

Thanks for the tip, sinclair4000! I just did as you suggested; hopefully more people will read the comments now :)

Really nice effects and visuals; fun game. There does seem to be a bug with moving the ship; I couldn't move until I right-clicked over the game.


TreSensa responds:

Glad you like the game, Rhuno! Yeah, I explain in the author comments how to avoid the issue of not being able to move the ship, but since the author comments aren't highly visible, I think most people miss them. If you play on our site, you won't have the same issue: http://www.mobilewebarcade.com/

Awesome game but one thing I don't like is the controls, moving left to right.


TreSensa responds:

Glad you like the game, mujek! Not sure if you're having the same issue as everyone else, but I explain in the author comments how to avoid the issue of not being able to move the ship.
