“The retro trend in video games remains strong, but not many of these love letters to old school gaming could pass for an actual retro game release. Zotrix proves to be a rare exception, as it has the look, feel, and texture of an actual old school game experience.” - Blu Ray Authority
Zotrix is an arcade space shooter inspired by early shooter games on arcade machines from 80's and early 90's. Designed for all generations it contains missions with nice and colorful enemies while focused on the arcade element of the gameplay.
You dive into deep space escorting a cargo ship from your fleet. Quickly you realize you're within the boundaries of enemy territory. Chains of enemy ships are lining up one by one while you perform maneuvers to clear the perimeter and avoid being cleared out yourself. Victory doesn't come easy as you have to earn every single space credit out there fighting in over 50 missions.
By clearing your mission objectives, reward is coming to your account and you're ready to upgrade your ship with decoys, shields, laser boosters and much more. You can even buy a new, better fighter. As you progress, you will get engaged in trading earned resources such as cobalt, nickel, palladium and others in trading room every space station features.
Build your strategy by carefully choosing routes from your space station towards another and have your take in every mission. Each mission will pit a challenge in front of you and most of the missions will get you to face a bigger and badder alien ships.
Zotrix definitely isn't breaking new ground with the whole fly around space and shoot things motif. Though it does control well and provide a decent amount of challenge. What separates it from its brethren is the inclusion of RPG elements. You can take multiple different paths and employ multiple strategies to progress and can also choose from many upgrades between missions to better suit your play style. Overall, it's a really solid space shooter with some awesome elements that keep it fresher than others of its kind.
