Was looking for a similar game like that for PC just to kill some time..and i was like..hey i remember xenon2...googled it..downloaded it..ran in VGA mode...and man it brought back some good times lol.

Anyone know any recent more modern pc versions similar to that style of gameplay?

I remember Xenon 2 on my good old Amstrad PC 1512, it was slow as hell in CGA 4 color mode, but I enjoyed it a lot. After I upgraded that PC I tried the game again in VGA and I was shocked. The sound was awful, I remember it had a complex music through the PC speaker, I don't think it supported AdLib or SoundBlaster (when Creative Labs was a nice company)

Friend of mine was badly hooked on Xenon2 on Amiga, i was more into R-Type.
Dont know of any recent xenon type shootemups on pc, but Tyrian 2k I still play in Dosbox :)
Open Tyrian is also in the works, a port of the old dos game. Should be perfect for you

Jets'n'Guns is vertical, but got the same old Amiga feel to it.

Every time I see "Xenon" I'm reminded of that Disney Channel movie...

i played the amiga version of xenon 2. the music, which i think was by bomb the bass (could be wrong) was amazing.
the ending was pretty cool with the tv being switched off! (in the game ofcourse -and remember this was long time ago when outro's werent all the rage, case in example would be eye of the beholder I, where in the end u get a lousy test screen. EOB II however had a much much better ending!)


Dont like platformers too much thus didnt play too much of GODS

there was also a bitmap brothers game with a Betty boo song (doing the do, by betty boo i think). anyone here remember what it was called?
