Go To

Xerix is a side-scrolling top-down shoot 'em up released in 1992. The player must guide a space ship through two different levels and destroy or avoid the many enemy and obstacles found within an alien structure that endangers the Earth. The project has been codenamed XERIX: the eXtended Enemy Response and Infiltration eXperiment. The player's eventual objective is to destroy the alien structure itself.


This Video Game contains examples of:

  • Generic Doomsday Villain: The alien structure has no backstory, no reason, no motivation, nothing. It's defined solely by its threat level.
  • It's a Wonderful Failure: If you lose all your lives, you get a cutscene happily demonstrating that everyone on Earth is killed and now there is nothing but silence.
  • Sequel Hook: The alien structure simply takes off without incident. There is celebrating, but savvy players must realize that this can't be the end.


How well does it match the trope?
