X-Multiply is a shooter similar to R-Type with similar elements; for example, there's a big mothership in stage 2. Such ships are actually quite common in shooters, and can be also seen in the Gradius and Darius game series. There are 7 stages to the game. Irem released it along with Image Fight in 1998, for the Sega Saturn and Playstation, though it also appeared in arcades.

Story

Xmultipl title

Attract Screen.

Taking a page from the classic film Fantastic Voyage, microscopic aliens invade a colony planet in the year 2249, infesting humans with themselves. To combat the alien queen, currently residing in a human female host, local scientists construct and deploy the X-002, a microscopic fighter.

Gameplay

This is a sidescrolling game with a single top-scrolling stage. If emulated, using a control pad instead of a keyboard offers better control.

Bosses

Stage 1: Hostur

Stage 2: Rokusu

Stage 3: Zarikasu

Stage 4: Ghoums

Stage 5: Hidra

Stage 6: Darya

Stage 7: Bykhee

Legacy

  • The ship doesn't possess a Force device, but the tentacle-like appendages it uses were later incorporated in the Flexible Force.
  • Konami's Xexex uses a force-like pod called the Flint, which uses similar tentacle mechanics from X-Multiply.
