Back in July 2019 JoyMasher provided Xbox One gamers with access to the brilliant Blazing Chrome – a love-letter to Metal Slug and Contra. Today though it is that same team who are dropping Oniken: Unstoppable Edition to Xbox One.
Available to purchase and download right now, Oniken: Unstoppable Edition first hit PC back in 2014, before launching on Nintendo Switch earlier this year. Now though it’s time for Xbox One gamers to enjoy the power of Oniken, with the Unstoppable Edition looking to ensure that no stone if left untouched.
Priced up at just £8.39, Oniken: Unstoppable Edition on Xbox One thrusts you into a post-apocalyptic future that is overseen by a sinister corporation. Nothing new there you may think – after-all, we’ve seen that a million times over – but from there on out, this 8-bit action platformer provides enough swordplay, and enough of a challenge, to keep even the most hardcore busy.
With the Unstoppable Edition enhancing the acclaimed hardcore challenge of Oniken with a bevy of gameplay, level design, and graphical improvements, this isn’t a game for the faint-hearted and only those sure of themselves need apply. But if that does include you, and you’re up for some 8-bit action, 6 tricky missions, more than 18 bosses, and a Hardcore Mode which sees you attempting to run through the whole damn thing with just one life, then hey, it’s time to fill your boots.
- 8-bit inspired pixel art and music

- Six difficult missions, plus additional bonus stages
- Battle 18+ bosses in the campaign or Boss Rush mode
- Single-life Hardcore Mode for a true challenge
