Description (by MrFlibble)

Project-X is a typical side-scrolling shooter where you need to blast incoming ships, collect powerups and navigate obstacles such as asteroids.

The plot concerns a distant planet Ryxx where defective military droids built by humans were dumped. The droids have become hostile, and the player's mission is to completely eradicate the droid army.
