Warp into action with Solar Shifter EX. Man your ship and dive into fierce combat situations in space and over beautiful and distant planet surfaces. Solar Shifter EX is a sci-fi shoot 'em up with the unique ability to 'shift'. Your only weapon is your ship: The Phase Shifter has been outfitted with a one-of-a-kind jump drive that lets you warp out of tough situations at will, a technique which will challenge you of to your limits when surviving the masses of enemies coming at you from all sides in this true bullet hell. In good old shmup fashion you will face uncountable formations of enemies that'll try to stop you. Be clever and use the Phase Shifter's jump drive to your advantage or you will get shot. STORY Shortly after mankind left the solar system to colonize new worlds, we had to face a powerful alien race. The war has passed, the losses were devastating and the enemy has defeated us. As the final strike, they are about to destroy the sun that gives life to the system that we now call home. Chaos erupted, and pirate raiders are scavenging fellow human colonies on the outer rim. Their only goal is to collect enough resources to be able to leave the solar system. FEATURES • Unique 'shifting' mechanic to bring a completely new level of depth into a shmup • 18 tough missions • 8 beautiful environments • Over 40 enemy types encountered throughout the game • Upgrade your ship • 4 controllable ships: One main ship and three alien ships.

Is this game even finished?!

You know that you're in trouble when the first individual enemy appears on the screen and the framerate drops to a crawl. Things then only proceed to get worse as the whole game seems to become unstable as you move the ship around the screen to the point where I had to turn the game off. The sad thing is that i'm a massive fan of the genre and will always take a chance on a new game. I've bought recent releases on dreamcast and regularly import shmups for the 360, but i've never felt as let down in a purchase as this one. If you want a good classic shooter on xbox one buy Raiden V!
