In XenoShyft Onslaught players take on the role of a commander in the NorTec Corporation. You're tasked with defending your division of the NorTec base as wave after wave of horrific aliens attempt to destroy the base and end NorTec's strip mining operation.
1 - 4 players - Single player compatible, fully cooperative gameplay.
Strong focus on coordination and strategic planning - to overcome the game's intense difficulty players will need to work together.
Base-Defense with deck-building elements
Incredible art - Illustrated by three amazing artists, XenoShyft features beautiful and consistent art. All of which creates one cohesive and frightening universe.
Inventive and exciting armor and weapon upgrade cards - You'll need to outfit your troops with the best equipment if you hope to survive.
Xenoshyft is a game for 1-4 players, with each player controlling one of the divisions of the Nortec military: The Science Labs, Med Bay, Armory, Weapon's Research, Barracks and Command Center. Each of these divisions represents one part of the overall Nortec base, and it is your job as Commander of these divisions to protect the base while its field operations are completed.
You and your teammates will have to work together to survive the continuous onslaught of powerful alien threats and horrors – the goal of the mission is not to wipe out these threats, it is merely to outlast them!
Survive through nine rounds of combat with these horrors and the base will have succeeded in its mission, and you and your allies will have survived to fight another day!

Excellent game. No bugs I can see
A well made game of co-op troop management. Usually I find deck builders to have pasted on theme but this one has mechanics that decently reflect the theme it is trying to convey. Though this is weakened with the psyonics and gen mid expansion a bit I feel.
A little practice has us winning easily at 2 division. Game is rather hard at 1 division. The difficulty settings are well gauged with easy being quite easy, normal being a decent challenge and hard being insane.
I definitely suggest getting the elites expansion. It’s a couple bucks but gives a lot more theme and strategy to the game by allowing surviving troops to level up.
My only complaint involves the UI for activating the expansions you have bought. There are expansions to the base game, an expandalone game, and expansions to that other game. Some of the expansions work with the base game some work on both and some only on the second game.
This is the nature of the game, very complicated, but the UI doesn’t help at all by explaining the difference between playing Onslaught with the Dreadmire expansion and playing Dreadmire with the Onslaught expansion. It’s very confusing with no information to decipher the puzzle.
Potential But Too Many Issues
This app has a lot to love, good art and animations, smooth flow, and a good core engine.
Too bad no one at CMON apparently ever played this game. This game is beyond hard, in many ways it is impossible to win. One example, in wave one, you could get a combination of two enemies that can nullify most of you attacks, this means in round one, through no fault of your own, you can lost half or more of your bases hp against the easiest wave, and that is just one example. The game is littered with impossible combinations. Once you get the engine down you should be able to get to round 7 consistently, but anything beyond that is all up to the random gods.
I even bought some expansions in hopes it would make the game winnable. No luck there.
In addition the app is buggy, constantly freezing and forcing you to close, save, and restart.
So here is an app that should be getting four or even five stars getting two because CMON doesn't seem to care. Too bad.
Must be fixed! Works great!
I took a chance on this, seeing all of the negative reviews, but the crashing issues are fixed! I had no issues on my iPhone X or iPad Air 2. It requires patience learning how to activate abilities/card effects (play the tutorial). Of course it's more fun co-op, but solo mode is a blast. This game is alot of fun and very challenging. Good luck!
