Super Xevious (スーパーゼビウス Sūpā Zebiusu?) is a vertical scrolling shooter arcade game that was released by Namco in 1984. As the name suggests, it is the sequel to Xevious, which was released 2 years earlier.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The gameplay is very much like the original Xevious except this time it is a little more difficult. Several new enemies were introduced in this game, including a silver Galaxian flagship, a rare silver Galaga scorpion ship, two jet planes, a helicopter and a dark yellow Tank Battalion tank. The hidden towers (AKA "Sol Citadels") were also located in different places. The four special flags are also in different places.

Releases[edit | edit source]

Later Appearances[edit | edit source]

Super Xevious appeared in Namco Classic Collection Vol. 1, Xevious 3D/G+, and in Namco Museum DS.

Reception[edit | edit source]

The game was released (as "Xevious 2") by Spotlight Software and distributed by Cinemaware in the compilation BrainBlasters with Bombuzal for the Amiga 2600. This compilation was reviewed in 1991 in Dragon #165 by Hartley, Patricia, and Kirk Lesser in "The Role of Computers" column. The reviewers gave BrainBlasters 5 out of 5 stars.[1]
