Xeodrifter is a Metroid-like action game developed by Renegade Kid.


The Xeodrifter flies his ship in deep space. Unexpectedly, his ship gets hit by an asteroid and he has to crash-land on a nearby planet to repair the ship. He travels from planet to planet to acquire new parts required for the repair of the ship and going off the star system Xeodrifter got trapped in.


Xeodrifter is a typical Metroidvania game. It is a two-dimensional platforming game that features immense interconnected maps which feature distinctive rooms and sections. The players cannot travel the whole map at first, as some sections of it require a specific ability or equipment to be opened. Sometimes, such items are protected by a unique and powerful enemy that has to be defeated by the players.

In the case of Xeodrifter, the players travel from planet to planet to find the necessary replacement parts. Several planets will be closed off for the players at the beginning of the game as they will need specific items to unlock the ability to land on them.

Art style

Xeodrifter features a completely flat two-dimensional graphics with a heavy use of shadows and parallax effects. The game uses the same color palette as the original Metroid games. Several Retrowave elements were added to the game in the form of music.

An average game that would like to be a good notes but in which we beat the same boss 7 times in a row and where the enemies do not make life. The game is divided into 4 levels. Once a level is well started, if you have nothing to do, you have to redo all the way in the opposite direction. It's better to commit suicide to get back in the hub faster.

I would not recommend it for someone who doses the Metroids because the game proves relatively repetitive as much in the exploration as in the boss clashes. Nevertheless this short experience is not unpleasant thanks to good music and a beautiful universe. The little player traumatized by a series of murderer of Serris may find comfort there. ^^

The developers of the very mediocre mutant Mudds have-against all odds-had the good idea to leave on the same bases as their first title (retro aesthetics, progression on several planes) and to lay a good small clone of Metroid. For originality we will pass, but it's clean, dynamic and the only interesting feature of the game is this time properly exploited.

Nice game first, but that proves very fast counter-intuitive with a level design wobble(position of the Ennemis, platforms etc.), gameplay and mechanics anything but enjoyable, everything in the game makes it slow, little possibility to skip the Ennemis, jumps far too high and too slow. The check points are poorly distributed and the bosses are not inspired. In short for the Metroidvania fan and other plateformers go your way.

A must have for any Megaman and/or Metroid Fan. The Game makes you really Happy. You kill the Bosses, get Items and accordingly the Path continues. The small Feature with the second Level is a successful Idea. Dure Environment and graphics are designed in a very stylish Pixel and the Background Music fits the Game and makes it correspondingly nicer to play. The Degree of Difficulty is very well adjusted but nothing for "unstable ' People. I'm just Saying thumbs up for this cool Game!
