Squad 51 vs the Flying Saucers is finally on Xbox

We initially heard of Squad 51 vs. the Flying Saucers back in the earliest moments of 2021 when it was being touted as Squadron 51. That release never materialised, and neither did the 2022 push as a name change came about. But slowly and surely WhisperGames and Assemble Entertainment have managed to move Squad 51 vs. the Flying Saucers into the mainnstream. It first launched on other platforms, and now comes to invade the world of Xbox. 

Take to the skies

Available right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S (seemingly with no optimisation) is Squad 51 vs. the Flying Saucers. This is a shoot ’em up in which you play as a pilot of Squadron 51 as they look to take it to the fleets of alien invaders. Expect a host of bullet-hell action taking place. 

Priced at £16.74, Squad 51 vs. the Flying Saucers isn’t your every day budget SHMUP. But it certainly looks interesting. Running a rather unique visual style, this one most definitely stands out from the crowd, with some really fun ideas. The question is, do you skills allow for success?

Some eleven stages are found in Squad 51 vs. the Flying Saucers, as is the opportunity to take to things with dynamic difficulty. When you consider the uniquely cinematic visual experience, and the chance to go at it with a friend, there should be much to love about how Squad 51 vs. the Flying Saucers plays out.

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.
