Omega Five Screenshots



Omega Five is the first true next-gen, high-definition shooter, with the most awe-inspiring graphics around! As you fly through entirely dangerous 3D environments in this side-scroller, enemies come at you from all sides, even the background! Grab an extra controller, choose your merc, and engage in 2-player local co-op, too.

Features:

* Unbelievable visuals for an XLBA game – No other shooter available on XBLA looks this good. This side-scrolling shooter, the first true next-gen HD shooter, is set in a gorgeous 3D environment.
* Entirely dangerous environments – That ship flying in from the distance isn't just for decoration. Enemies come at you from all sides, even from the background!
* Challenging gameplay – Play through the game from start to finish in 'Arcade Mode' or test yourself with 'Challenge Mode', in which you go for the highest score possible on one level. If you're hardcore enough, you can try your hand at the ultra-difficult ++ Mode, where you're only allowed one hit!
* Choose your merc – Fight as Ruby, Tempest, or other characters, each of whom has multiple unique main weapons, along with both devastating and life-saving special attacks.
* Local co-op – Grab an extra controller and demolish enemies with a friend by your side!
* Unlockables! – Discover new characters, game modes, and options!
* Intuitive controls – A modern control scheme uses the right analog stick to aim and fire.
