Xeno Fighters R Xeno Fighters R is a homebrew SHMUP created by Alluro, also known as JudgeSpear. Other people assisting, including Obreck2 (whom Alluro worked with on another fangame project, Mushroom Kingdom Fusion); sprite artists Herr Schatten and Gun6; and technical assistants Twiddle, Skyknight, and nZero, make up Team XF. This project is currently under development.
Overview This game is a tribute fangame to the Raiden Fighters series of top-down scrolling shooters by SEIBU KAIHATSU INC. It also incorporates a few elements from games by Psikyo, Raizing/8ing, and Cave.
The game boasts a roster of playable original ships, such as the balanced Amada Vipros, the fast Phyxius, the damage-dealing Zaiva, and the finesse Xelcor. It also features a varied array of guest fighters, serving as cameos from other SHMUP games, both well known and obscure. There is even a certain dual-type Electric/Flying Legendary Pokémon that appears as a guest fighter.
The plot of Xeno Fighters R involves BRES, a group of humans subverted and corrupted by a race of hostile extraterrestrials known as the Keto, launching attacks against the forces of ATHENA through various periods in Earth's war history. The guest fighters and the EX Stages do not have any connection to the plot.
The fangames featured on Fusion Fangaming are non-profit fan-based works.
