About this game

The hit Kickstarter boardgame, now available on mobile!

Defend against waves of horrific Hive beasts in this beautifully illustrated, base defense, deck-building game for 1 to 4 players!

"One of the most fun co-op games I have played in a long time!" - Tom Vasel (The Dice Tower)

"The enemies are just monstrous and difficult!" - Rodney Smith (Watch it Played)

In XenoShyft Onslaught players take on the role of a commander in the NorTec Corporation. You're tasked with defending your division of the NorTec base as wave after wave of horrific Hive beasts attempt to destroy the base and end NorTec's strip mining operation.

Gameplay Features

1 - 4 players - Single player compatible, fully cooperative gameplay.

Strong focus on coordination and strategic planning - to overcome the game's intense difficulty players will need to work together.

Base-Defense with deck-building elements

Incredible art - Illustrated by three amazing artists, XenoShyft features beautiful and consistent art. All of which creates one cohesive and frightening universe.

Inventive and exciting armor and weapon upgrade cards - You'll need to outfit your troops with the best equipment if you hope to survive.

Xenoshyft is a game for 1-4 players, with each player controlling one of the divisions of the Nortec military: The Science Labs, Med Bay, Armory, Weapon's Research, Barracks and Command Center. Each of these divisions represents one part of the overall Nortec base, and it is your job as Commander of these divisions to protect the base while its field operations are completed.

You and your teammates will have to work together to survive the continuous onslaught of horrors – the goal of the mission is not to wipe out these threats, it is merely to outlast them!

Survive through nine rounds of combat with these horrors and the base will have succeeded in its mission, and you and your allies will have survived to fight another day!

I am in love with the art style & opening of this game but especially for a paid game I was very disappointed by the incredibly minimalist animations & sound effects. The buying phase is unintuitive & effects that should just activate on their own require complicated user input. It's definitely built for larger screens like tablets or computers & doesn't suit phones. The multiplayer is genuinely neat & I like so many of the concepts in this game. It just lacks personality & doesn't feel fluid.

It's an ok game. The controls are poor, especially compared to other asmodee adaptations. User unfriendly, sucks the fun away pretty quickly. You have to be online even to play solo. If your connection drops you lose all progress. That's pretty bad. I'm tempted to go down to 2* because of it.

I always wanted to play the physical boardgame but decided to save a few bucks by going digital. If you watch Rodney Smith's tutorial on his amazing Youtube chnnel "Watch it Played" it will ease the barrier of entry enormously. The app itself has a fine eniugh rulebook but I still recommend the aforementioned tutorial video. The music, sound effects and opening dialogue immediately plunge you into a rich and believable universe. Gameplay is solid and better yet very replayable. Great Job!
