"One of the most fun co-op games I have played in a long time!" - Tom Vasel (The Dice Tower)

"The enemies are just monstrous and difficult!" - Rodney Smith (Watch it Played)

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.

Gameplay Features

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!

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!

Buggy Mess

Buttons are tied to animations. So hitting the done button twice too quickly will skip entire phases, bypassing the game’s own warning prompts. An easy fix to this would be the ability to go back to acquire phase from deploy phase.

A few cards need more detail, such as the Prototype Heat Lance Shotgun which doesn’t specify that it only targets it’s own lane. There are also other bugs such as being unable to discard certain cards during wrap-up phase, which ended up costing me a Hard game on the very last round.
