General Information

Available on:PlayStation 4Dec 8, 2015
PCJul 24, 2015

Developer: ZeroBit Games

Publisher: Ocean Media

Genres: Arcade, Action

Zotrix is a twin-stick space shooter that combines the retro look and feel of 80’s and 90’s arcade games with modern gameplay elements, customization, and depth. The game’s console debut adds an Arcade Mode, new missions, more boss encounters, as well as new ships and power-ups unavailable in the well-received original version that some may be familiar with from its PC launch. Zotrix is a twin-stick space shooter at its core, but on top of that it’s also a surprisingly deep space trading game. The Story Mode gives you specific objectives, but lets you plot your own route through a network of space stations to achieve them. You’ll escort trade ships from one station to the next, protecting them from onslaughts of enemies in intricate flight patterns attempting to intercept or destroy humanity’s vital war resources.

Overall, the music definitely increased the enjoyability of Zotrix.

Fun to play with plenty of replay value, Zotrix sounds the part but the clunky interface and non-nonsensical controls prove to be frustrating.

Zotrix is a decent if unambitious twin-stick shooter with smooth, fluid controls that are well suited to pick up and play sessions. A steep difficulty curve means that you will need patience, while the awful UI makes it a challenge to navigate the title's menus. We'd recommend this if you're desperate for an arcade-inspired blaster, but otherwise leave it in a galaxy far, far away.

Zotrix could've been a spectacular homage to old-school shooters had the developers focused on tighter controls and a simpler menu interface. As it stands, though, it's deeply flawed, though some players will find mileage out of it due to its vast offerings and spectacular soundtrack. Give it a try before you buy if you can, just to see if the test drive is worth it.
