You control a space ship in a vertically scrolling window and shoot enemies. If you kill the boss enemy which appears at the end of each stage, or if you can survive till the boss enemy gets bored with you and escapes, you can go to the next stage.

xsoldier has a unique feature --- the "not shooting" bonus. You can get a pretty good score by not pressing the shoot button. After all, if the game is a simple kill-everything and shooting is always a good thing, why do you have to press a shoot button? You can play xsoldier as a simple kill-everything (and it is the best way to survive), but if you care your score, you need to kill all enemies with a minimum number of bullets.

A nice arcade game, but people who install it for the first time should know that it doesn`t have a menu entry and they should run it by command "xsoldier"(the name of game), and it shoots by pressing left shift.The pause key is p and to quit should press Q.

A well-made arcade shooter. Speed and intensity makes this game quite enjoyable. However, it completely lacks sound, and the graphics are not excellent. More variation between levels would also make it more interesting. Nonetheless, if you're looking for a quick arcade game fix, it's worth playing.
