I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for Xevious, even back in my youth when I would try to last more than a minute while playing it in the arcades. I still feel it was way too hard, not a Donkey Kong level of difficulty perhaps…but still a tough one.
I will say this though, the Atari 7800 port of the title has some really nice box artwork!
As I’ve stated before I sadly never owned an Atari 7800 but this video by Machines2jeux makes it look like a fairly nice port.
Xevious by the way was never released to the Atari 2600 or Atari 5200 home gaming systems. I find that odd.
