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 rechargeable 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.

Thexder was one of the few games that really excelled on a tandy1000. The game ran at 320x200 16 colors. (the tandy wasn't quite as flexible as an ega) and in this video mode it seemed to look cleaner and more vibrant. Also the music sounded GREAT on the TI sound chip in the tandy.
