DOS - 1994
Description of Xatax
Xatax is a side-scrolling shooter that doesn't add any revolutionary concept to the genre, but does what it does well: furious action, tons of power ups, endless waves of enemy ships, and well-designed levels.
A fun and harder-than-average shooter that bodes well for the fledling company.

@Oldschooler - You must have an old download or one from another site, I just grabbed the file available here and can access episodes 2 and 3 from the getgo on my laptop.

How do you unlock the next two episodes if you're playing on a laptop? I've finished ep1 but can't seem to proceed with ep2

I just finished this game. Xatax consists of three episodes. The first episode is too easy. The second episode is a decent challenge. The third episode is a Nintendo hard bullet hell that requires frequent save game reloading. Unfortunately, the ending sucks - just two lines of text, after all that hard work clearing episode three. I was disappointed that the story given in the intro was not continued.

Wow! Good old times' game. I played xatax lot of times, enjoying music and graphics. Later, when I see Descent 3D, I say "this guy owes a lot to xatax".
