Soldner X2 Final Prototype
A frantic flight through massive danger,
this side scroller is anything but predictable. Mind blowing levels with
abundant enemy fire to dodge keeps players on the edge of their seat.
With this surprisingly exciting game loosing concentration for an
instant can spell disaster for the player’s powerful spacecraft.
A mix of old and new make the Soldner
franchise one of the more endearing game franchises. Simple in concept
yet, cool visuals and game play make this one of those games that
player’s come back to repeatedly.
It has been twenty years after the Virus
Wars, the player’s return to Gota IV as part of the newly formed Söldner-X
defense force. The main mission is to free the galaxy from the enemy
D’aarg. This technologically superior race spreads like a plague amongst
the stars. Now they threaten humankind as well. That is where the player
comes in of course. The player blasts their way across seven visually
stunning levels. All packed with various obstacles and enemy dangers.
The high def 1080p graphics are most visually pleasing. Backgrounds and
even the blasts of explosions and enemy craft flying at your ship have a

like this without the boss battles? Oh there are boss battles, those
white knuckled thrilling battles that some of us may remember from the

felt so sweet when you vanquished your electronic coded nemesis.
Along the way, there are various bonus
points and boosting of the crafts weapons to assist blasting the enemy
Shooting the enemy at longer ranges gives
the player more wiggle room for dodging. There are times that if you are
too close to an enemy when you blast them into nothingness, that the
explosion may obscure other ships or even laser fire or other danger.
Getting close as the enemy ships explode can have the player following
closely behind to destruction.
There is a dynamic score-linked difficulty
system. Detailed online high score ranking tables and replay file
sharing. All of which is kind of fun for the aggressive gamer in all of
us. Soldner: X2 Final Prototype while a short game like most of this
genre, is none the less a spectacular romp that will have players
jumping on for a quick blast fest, or seeing just how skilled they are
and racking up the points and special upgrades in the levels.
Have fun, play games
