The evil Choazid Empire has launched a surprise attack on your homeworld, establishing a heavily fortified base from where their forward assault group burrows deep underground, capturing subterranean lifeforms and transforming them into vicious biomechs.

With it being only a matter of time before the Choazids start converting your people, it's up to you to take the controls of one of the few remaining Tiamat dragonship prototypes: the X class fighter, a craft capable of immense firepower - provided you pick up enough upgrade caches during a mission where you must dodge and blast like there's no tomorrow.

Featuring six levels of intense shooting action, Tiamat X is a rip-snortin tribute to the side-scrolling shooters of yesteryear, and would be right at home blazing away on the screen of a booming, beer-stained arcade cabinet. As such, your PC will have to do, and it is much to the designer's regret that he can't plumb a coin-slot into his rig for that truly authentic seaside amusement-park experience.

Get some big speakers, though. Really, we do recommend them for this game.

Key features include:
  • Auto fire - this is primarily intended as an accessibility option and allows the player to not have to worry about using a fire button.
  • Quick fire - don't like mashing buttons/keys, then this is for you. Press and hold to fire.
  • Color blind filter - this filter adjusts the game thereby making it more colour blind friendly. We just hope we have got it right!
  • Six levels of intense shooting action.
  • Original music score.
  • Steam Achievements.
  • Steam Leaderboards.
  • Steam Trading Cards - featuring artwork designed exclusively for these cards!.

Tiamat X reviews and comments

Microsoft from French
Tiamat X is not a game that shines by its originality and it smells game maker positive:-pays tribute to a certain "GRADIUS"-Ben is all... Negative:-very medium graphics-lack of fuildity in the movements-soporific gameplay-non-existent music, lamentable sounds brief don't lose your money or spend it for a Crimzon clover world ignition or a ROCHE FUSION!

Small independent developer game succeeds but not very convincing. It takes the base of a shoot'em up Arcade, just the classic. However when I come home I would relax and not have to start all over again if you lose part 2.... It's pretty restrictive. After the positioning of the keys is badly screwed because you shoot with space but you head be with the arrows directional be the numeric keypad..... you have to put a p * * * in of key armour!!!!!!!! In short not a great game especially for its price (even Soldé).....

Not a bad game of ships, the problem is that it is not good, at all, is repetitive, has no dynamic Bena. It Seems that the frames are trimmed, because you feel no sense of fluency, the funds do lose the goal, etc, gives the impression that is a game made by beginners. I Don't recommend it, unfortunately, no. Doubt much airtime to buy it, one day I caught on sale and buy it, and yet I am not satisfied. It Is a shame because It could have been good, with only a little more dedication and care, just a little more care of the programmers.

I confess not yet to have finished this game at the time I write this review but it is really a good shoot'em up horse between the retro gameplay comparable to the arcade and graphics a little PlayStation. No load time relou, 8 directions, a shooting button and fun. That's all we ask for and we have it. The big black spot is actually his soundtrack that we will be eager to cut before we have dézinford the first wave of enemies... So, fans of R-type and other gladiatus, engage in this adventure, cut the sound and replace it with your best prodigy album of 2009 or seize the opportunity to redone your good and old audio cassettes!

Tiamat X, independent Panorama game created by BBQ games, bad game, the music is very repetitive, does not give satisfaction eliminate the enemy ships, the designs of the enemies give cancer and are a copy of the previous. It Belongs to the genre shoot ' em up of sidescroller in lateral, the scenarios do not know if the elements are of props of the phase or are in the level... I do not know that priori clearly I'm wrong, because I do not usually think about this type of games as generally are good, but this is the exception that confirms the rule. There is No where to take it as you look at it all are negative elements, pity that does not meet the requirements to refund the money, but you can always remove it from your Steam account which is a relief... Pathetic
