A rare and overlooked gem of the NES library, Xexyz is a very enjoyable (if not very difficult) shooter/platformer with RPG elements tied up with beautiful music.
I aimed for efficiency in this run, but ran into a few issues currency and weapon choice.
It's a balancing act on weapon power to reduce boss battle time and time to power up weapons.
There is supposively a warp in the first seconds of the game to the last level, but how boring!
: There's a six-years old submission
that beats the game significantly faster, and the play generally looks quite improvable. Rejecting.
