Summary

Back once again with the renegade master, Super Destronaut DX 2 is a more modern spin on the classic game Space Invaders. Super Destronaut DX 2 allows you to move around the screen and slow downtime. You get a whole host of modes with challenge mode being the one at the forefront and the arcade modes taking second place, weird as challenge mode is the worse of the lot. The arcade modes allow a lot more freedom from the annoying challenges like limited bullets or time limits. Super Destronaut DX 2 plays well and is a lot of fun but being that it is a sequel, not much has changed and it’s just another trophy list to 100 percent in under an hour.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
