Port of an eye-catching Amiga shoot 'em up, itself inspired by one of the early hit shooter games for that beloved computer system. Written by the same programmers as the original, the legendary Bitmap Brothers, who would go on to create other titles like Gods and The Chaos Engine. The Genesis-rendered music is downright horrid when compared to the Amiga original, but the gameplay is still there.

Xenon 2: Megablast is vertically scrolling space shooter, in which you have to pass several levels, filled with waves of enemies, that all end with a level boss creature. Each group of enemies you destroy grants you a cash reward and every once in a while you enter Colin's Bargain Basement, where you can use this cash to purchase upgrades for your ship like better weapons, speed & health upgrades etc. Some upgrades can also be picked up during the levels. The first part of the game has an organic feel to it, while the second part of the game features mechanical enemies. As there are some maze-like sections with dead-ends in the game, your spaceship scrolls backwards when you keep pressing the down key. A typical Bitmap Brothers smash, the game is also famous for its soundtrack by British electronica group Bomb The Bass.
