Ten Terrible Enemy Bosses, One Thexder Unit. Sounds About Even. Thexder is back, all-new and ready for action. And it's a good thing, too. He's got ten ticked off tyrants just waiting to dent his metal. Completely recreated just for Windows 95, Thexder is the robotic mega-hero who thwarts enemies using skill, strategy and an awesome arsenal of weapons. Thexder must run, jump, crawl and fly with rapid-fire reflexes as he changes form to battle his way through 50 levels on ten amazing worlds. Each world is ruled by a despicable "Boss" who commands his twisted troops to defeat the ever-changing Thexder. From frozen moons, molten mining colonies, orbiting space stations, asteroids and more, you command Thexder as he meets his final match against his sworn enemy, Primus Tech. Multi-threading gives you multiple game windows that you can select, resize, and move as you wish. Modem and network ready - with Direct Play, lets you compete with your friends via modem or local area network. Direct Input - for quicker joystick response. Direct Sound - like you've never heard before in a Windows environment.

A platform shooter from Japan, Thexder offers many levels and diverse enemies that gradually increase in difficulty. You pilot a Battletech-style robot capable of switching from a 'mech into a jet at any time. Your weapon auto-aims, but uses up a fixed amount of rechargable energy; if you run out of this energy, you'll have to wait a few seconds before you can fire again. Your 'mech also contains a shield that can be activated to protect you from harm, but this lasts for a few seconds and uses up some of your life energy.
