Target Xplosion is a free (as in free software) and open-source 2D scrolling shooter game inspired by R-Type, Dodonpachi, and Touhou Project (東方Project).

Game system

You have several types of shot:

  • Normal shot
  • Homing missiles
  • Bomb (available in level 3)

The game also integrates a combo system. Each time you shoot an enemy, the combo value increase. So you can earn more points when you kill enemies or take a specific bonus item. But be careful! If you get hit or die, you will lose your combo.

You can get more information about the score system here.

Install Instructions

Windows users: Extract and run the .exe file

Linux users: As of today, I am working on creating a generic package for different Linux distributions. Since this package is not available yet, I don't provide a Linux version. I 'll be glad if you provide some help for that.

If you want to play the game on Linux, you must compile it (that's the only way so far). Please check this link for more information.
