Atari ST A to Z: Xevious

It’s dangerous, it’s devious… it’s Xevious! Again. This time for the Atari ST, after we’ve previously seen the Atari 8-bit and Evercade versions.

The Atari ST port of Namco’s classic, genre-defining vertical scroller was handled by Probe, a company whose output varied enormously from game to game. As it happens, their version of Xevious was a very solid port of the game… it was just a bit late. All right, a lot late. But at least it showed up eventually!

One thought on “Atari ST A to Z: Xevious”

  1. Oh man…XEVIOUS! Such a great and fun game….tough as nails though. The better you were at it, the more difficult it became. So many cool features though, like the hidden towers for instance. I destroyed one of the mother ships once…but that’s the farthest I’ve gotten. Still..many great memories of this one. Thanks for bringing them back 😊
