“For those who want to test their first-person skills with the type of score-based arcade gameplay that is usually found in other genres, it does what it sets out to do and it does so successfully.”
8/10 – Destructoid

About This Game

Xotic is an arcade-style first-person shooter where you rack up huge scores by shooting enemies, detonating chain reactions, and discovering secret power-ups and point multipliers. Armed with a weaponized symbiotic creature called the Macroterra, you must cleanse the evil presence and re-plant the seeds of life on a planet ravaged by the minions of the Orb.

Destroy the insidious scab plants and new life will grow in their place, diminishing the Orb’s control of the planet. Trigger scab plant chain reactions to earn score multipliers and chain bonus points. Collect Orb essence to boost your score, or grab them in mid-air to earn an aerial combo bonus. Seek out and destroy the hidden Orb brains and collect all of the Orb essence in each level for even more points.

Earn experience points to upgrade your weapons and skills, including “Absorbtion” which pulls points towards you automatically! Unlock the secrets of “Hard Hologram” technology to deploy mobile shields or aerial landing platforms.

Xotic is a unique arcade shooter experience unlike anything you’ve played before. Get it now!

Didn't like this. Speed runs to try to get on a leaderboard with constant interruptions telling you points you scored I just found annoying.

I wanted to like this game, looks like a challenging FPS ... but its average 3D engine combined with weak movements system prevent me to enjoy it.

Pretty short game unless you want to repeat the same stages over and over and over, overall this game is not the best, its combat and movements seem clunky and the camera view of your character is not accurate, they have the camera placed in your characters chest rather than head so when it seems like you can fit though something you actually cant, the platforms become enraging, not even sure how i unlocked them but the more you get the more it turns into a junbled mess of invisible platforms blocking you in even when you are in mid air you can still get trapped from these platforms, enemies are stupid they barely make any sound when attacking you and sometimes you wont even notice your being attacked and then you will suddenly die, maps are boring and seem repetitive, main idea behind game is to just combo everything and get high score. Graphics are pretty crap and constant view of just weapon is annoying. Cant recommend this game, ive played better free ones online. DLC is also pretty average, basically just another average 3 missions, luckily i got this game in a bundle so it works out to about 10cents for whole game and all DLC so i wont hate on its value but its definatly not worth what they are charging.

Pro:
Demo
Steam achieves
Reasonable priced DLCs
Low system specs
Often in bundles or on sale
Plenty of upgrades & customization

Con:
Fugly graphics (I know they are trying for that arcade look but it's just Fugly to me)
Controls are not ... fluid? ... percise? ... just a bit "off"? I'm not sure exactly but they're not 100% there yet.
This seems more like a facebook game than a PC Master Race game.
Base game price

Overall:
5/10 +1 upgrades +2 demo -1 Fugly -1 control issues = 6/10
If you like Fugly FPS games, grab this on sale for 66% off (+).

This game "Xotic" (pronounced exotic), although I continually call it zotic for some unknown reason, is a splendid blend of bejeweled meets unreal tournament. The focus here is on scoring and making the most of the multiplyers within each of the many differing score attack levels there are in the game. Usually, there are 3 goals to complete to attain a perfect 5 star rating for your actions during gameplay. Those goals are: gathering all the essence, eliminating all the scabs, and finding all the brains. Essence is a colorful diamond type figure dotted around the levels and can be acquired by running through them. The scabs are red rooted circles in the ground that you must shoot consecutively to form chains which increase your point scoring potential. Finally, the brains are mysterious objects that float and explode once shot and resemble a fireworks effect that is usually fairly awe inspiring. There are also essence, brain, and scab attack modes that challenge the player to complete the level in the quickest time possible. The scoring system for all phases of the game is superb, as well as the leaderboard system. Although this is a challenging game, its a breakthru product as far as first person shooter scoring games go.
