dRxLaX Screen 1

dRxLaX is a multiplayer game for up to four players, new players (additional controllers plugged in) can join in at any time, but they will have to wait for the next round to participate. In the game you control a color-coded ship, your ship contains a limited energy bar and a limited shield bar. When your shield is depleted you are taken out of action for the remainder of the round.

Energy is used to fire shots and deploy mines. Your ship constantly gains more energy relative to how large your shield is. The drawbacks to increasing the size of your shield is that you become much slower, easier to hit and more vulnerable to mine explosions. When you cause damage to another ship, your ship earns 1/3 of what they have lost.
