Always seen yourself as a bit of a Squad Killer? The latest 8-bit retro classic to hit Xbox, PlayStation and Switch will allow you the chance to hone your skills… 

Available to purchase and download on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch, Squad Killer comes from the eastasiasoft team to deliver some straightforward, super addictive 8-bit action. 

Priced at £4.19 and putting you in control of a proper old school retro affair that does away with modern touches to instead focus on the gameplay, you’ll be tasked with entering rooms, clearing enemies and heading to the next, all in order to rinse and repeat forevermore. Or at least, for the 17 stages that are on offer. This is as basic a loot and shooter as you are going to get – but we can’t wait to get hands on with the pixelated massacre it promises to turn into. 

With bosses awaiting should you be able to prove your worth, power-ups present to help stack the odds in your favour, and a gloriously delicate two-tone visual palette which is adjustable to your needs, honestly, we think there’s much to love about being a Squad Killer. 

Our full review of Squad Killer on Xbox will be along in the days ahead, but if you wish to get access to a download just head to the Xbox Store and nab the game for Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S. Squad Killer is also available on PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch should you prefer those formats. 

Game Description:

Blast your way through escalating challenges in retro two-tone style! Recalling the straightforward and addictive challenge of 8-bit classics, Squad Killer puts you in control of a retro arcade experience with a little modern flair. Graphics are presented in pixelated two-tone style but offer a touch of detail, customization and precision that pushes beyond the limits of its inspirations. Adjust the color palette, choose between multiple play modes, purchase upgrades and overcome unpredictably shuffled stage order with each run! The objective is simple – clear all enemies from the rooms you enter, obtain a key and proceed to the next level. But victory is far from certain as new types of enemies aim to end your run and a boss encounter awaits every five stages. Kill or be killed! Take each one down quickly and strategically to collect coins and buy power-ups to stack the deck in your favor.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
