Xotic Pro Tips
Xotic Pro Tips by Pyronious
- Learn how to ride holograms. Deploy a hard hologram (default key: TAB) while in mid-air to land on it – then immediately jump again. This gives you incredible freedom to move around the level at will. Try combining this with the FLIGHT powerup for maximum freedom of movement!
- Learn to keep your terraform chain alive. That’s the meter in the upper-left corner of the screen. Keep shooting scab plants to keep the meter full and maintain your point multiplier. Complete a level in a single chain for the PERFECT CHAIN bonus!
- Complete the level goals with an active point multiplier powerup (x2 or x3) to maximize their point potential. There are three primary goals in each level:
— Terraform Complete (25,000 points: shoot all the red scab plants)
— Orb Essence Eliminated (25,000 points: pick up all orange, yellow and purple Orb Essence)
— All Orb Brains Discovered (25,000 points: shoot all the glowing Orb Brains)
- Play in Hard mode. All points are multiplied by x3 during the tally phase in the hardest difficulty mode.
- Watch your crosshair. The red arrow points to the closest enemy. Defeat all the enemies in each level to open the exit portal.
- Bonus Levels: In the bonus levels, there are no enemies. To open the exit portal, complete the three level goals.
- Practice, practice, practice. The first few times through a level you’ll just need to learn where things are. Start formulating a route that builds your chains and maximizes your point bonuses. Now perfect it and make it faster. Every point counts!
