Be the last hope against the mutant infestation. Enter the aftermath of a scientific experiment gone horribly wrong.

Xenowerk™ comes from Pixelbite, the creators of Space Marshals. It is a top-down action shooter challenging your combat skills in an underground science lab. Descend deeper into the abyss and explore the tarnished levels. Armed with a flashlight as your main guidance, you’ll never know what’s lurking in the dark!

Your objective is to destroy all the nests and eliminate all mutants to prevent them from spreading.
Xenowerk™ has 70 levels to explore with increasing difficulty. As progressing through the game you’ll come across a growing number of mutants and expanding areas to cleanse.

Heavier firepower and thicker armor is critical to stay alive on your journey. Gather pickups from slain mutants to power up weapons and armor.

Xenowerk™ features a set of special powers to boost your offensive when you’re in need. Activate one or several at a time for a more effective way to wipe out mutants.

Editors’ Choice

Just how we like our shooters—fast and ferocious—Xenowerk pits you against the hideous creatures terrorizing a bio-research lab. Stellar dual-stick controls and spectacular graphics enhance each battle, but developer Pixelbite (Space Marshals, Repulze) clearly worked just as hard on replayability. Choosing different weapons and armor will affect your strategy for clearing levels, while killstreak bonuses and player challenges will keep you gunning for high scores.

Just Pure Shooting Fun

I bought this game when it was new on the App Store and played through all the levels. Then they added more. Played through those and they added more! It’s been a while since they added anything because they put out other games like Space Marshall 1 & 2. There is another Xenowerk game but really it’s a completely new game and shares none of the characteristics of this one which I like much more. I love this game because even after I played it it’s still fun to run through the hardest levels shooting at things. I went through a tough break up and played this every day to work through my emotions as silly as that seems. It very relaxing to just power through different levels. Grab different weapons and use different strategies to kill the big brains that are everywhere in the later levels. The controls are the best I’ve used on a tablet or phone. It’s just a lot of fun. There’s kind of a story but this is not a story heavy game. It’s a third person shooter and your character just wants to keep her job. Help her. Dev, I’d love to see a version 2 with new environments and weapons.

Best Twin Stick Shooter so far, Amazing Game

This game is incredibly fun. Amazingly responsive and precise controls (both touchscreen and MFI controller), beautiful graphics, nice animations, great enemies and enemy variety, tons of armors and weapons to unlock, nice power sets to add variety and tactics, immersive sounds, and a great scoring/unlock system that has you seeking kill sprees for the bonus points.

The only twin stick shooters that come close to this game in fun and quality are the same developers Space Marshals 1 and 2 and the two Halo games (Spartan Assault and Spartan Strike). I love and recommend all five. For how little all five cost, you can't go wrong (I've had more fun with each of them than with games that cost 2 or 3 (or in the case of Xenowerk, 10 times) as much).

All five games work great with touchscreen controls, but all five are even better with an external MFI controller, so thank you to the developer for including controller support.
