About:

ZX brings the euphoric intensity of bullet hell shmups to a new arena. Pilot your small, but formidable ship through swarms of foul monstrosities and cybernetic juggernauts, carving a path of insane destruction through the games cavernous levels.



Master your ships flexible, dual-type hybrid gun system and make short work of your enemies. Turn the intimidating maelstrom of enemy bullets to your advantage by deflecting them back to your foes with the ships powerful twin-blade attack, simultaneously fueling your insanely powerful hyper-gun. Slice through their monstrous ranks, and leave nothing alive.



ZX encourages and rewards reckless, daredevil styled play... for only the insane will survive. Featuring lovingly crafted retro-futuristic aesthetics, intense, atmospheric sound-scapes and tight, responsive controls, this is the game your childhood self always wanted to play.

"this is an intense and satisfying game which should fulfill your need for an arcade shooter for a nice amount of time" - Indie Retro News
