DOGOS has arrived on Xbox One and updates the classic shmup with a modern day twist. Or at least it tries to.
Available right now on Xbox One, DOGOS will set you back a cool £9.59 (although if you’re an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, you’re currently seeing a discount on that), and brings you a fast paced battle against an alien race – the Zeetnuks. With 3D visuals, 14 levels, four difficulty options in play, a number of bosses to check out and some balanced gameplay, if the shoot ’em up scene is your thing then DOGOS aims to deliver.
Whether it does or not is open for debate though – as you can check out for yourself in our full review.
DOGOS has updated classic shmup games by introducing current technology elements, such as 3D graphics and dynamic camera vision. By imitating open world games, the payer can move around freely through the scenarios, in any direction. This is a real innovation for games of this kind. DOGOS is revitalizing the genre, and invites you to live a real action-packed experience that will challenge your skills and your senses. Loads of shots and explosions, and an incredible, catchy soundtrack. If you like fast-paced, thrilling videogames, then DOGOS is just for you. PREPARE FOR A BATTLE THAT WILL PUT YOUR NERVES ON EDGE! Story Earth has been invaded by a perverse race of bio-mechanical beings from outer-space known as Zeetnuks. A group of humans organize themselves to resist the invasion, but soon discover they don’t stand a chance against the enemy’s technological superiority. The Resistance decides to embark on an ambitious project: combining human and alien engineering, they set out to create a fleet of ships to fight the invaders. The Zeetnuks uncover the Resistance’s plans and they launch a surprise attack against the base where the humans are developing the prototypes. During the attack, Desmond Phoenix, a skilled pilot, manages to escape on a KZ 72—one of the models being developed, which everyone will come to know as DOGOS. DOGOS tells the story of that pilot, and how his actions changed the future of the human race. Features 3D OPEN WORLDS You can navigate 14 levels that emulate how 3D open worlds work.
