Description official descriptions
X-Out is a horizontally scrolling shoot-'em-up. Unlike most comparable games (e.g. R-Type), the game is not set in outer space or even in the air - instead, the fight between good and evil is underwater.
Through five levels, the player has to shoot countless enemies, complete with the obligatory mid-level and end-level bosses. After having completed a level, the player gets to purchase new weapons; instead of simply buying upgrades, it is possible to customize the ship by placing new weapons anywhere on it.

The working title of this game was Medusa. The TFMX soundtrack by Chris Hülsbeck spread through the Amiga community in the early 90's, usually still under the name Medusa.
