Action games have quickly become the go-to titles on mobile devices. From heart-pounding shooters and platformers, to beat ’em ups, these immersive experiences put players through rigorous tests of dexterity, quick reflexes and hand-eye coordination.

Pixelbite’s top down action game Xenowerk offers players a thrilling top-down action experience while fighting mutants in an advanced sci-fi tech facility. The concept behind it is straightforward; an unsuccessful experiment has compromised its security, and now it is up to players to clear it out and restore order in this advanced facility. With plenty of fast-paced shooting action and multiple levels to complete, players will never tire from this gripping gameplay experience!
Mechanics are straightforward; using only two controls–left stick for movement and right stick for firing–you can navigate around the screen using weapons you select with left stick while using right stick to fire them with right stick. There is an array of weapons to select, each offering its own specific damage dealing capabilities. As players complete levels they are also rewarded with cogwheels scattered throughout stages and money for killing mutants–the more of each collected, the higher will be your score and more weapons can be upgraded!
Though Xenowerk can be somewhat repetitive and lack in level variety, it still manages to feel rewarding. The game’s graphics are impressive with plenty of detail in each level, item and enemy; enemies all look unique as do their death animations; the presence of green goo is also a nice touch!
As the player advances through Xenowerk, they can use any money collected to upgrade their base. Doing so allows them to upgrade primary and secondary weapons while unlocking several useful abilities – including temporary shielding powers-up, increased speed boosts, and the capability to do more damage with each shot.
Respawn systems make the game more accessible; especially since mobile gaming typically sees players engage in shorter sessions as opposed to full hour-long ones. When killed by mutants, players can either continue where they were or simply pick up where they left off and continue the level they were on. This feature makes the game more user friendly for casual mobile gamers who play short bursts rather than extended play sessions.
Overall, Xenowerk is an outstanding example of arcade dual-stick shooting done well. The controls are responsive, making for an enjoyable gaming experience with either controllers or touchscreen devices.
