Xevious is a classic side scrolling shoot ’em up. It was released by Namco in 1982 and was one of the first vertical scrolling shooters.
The original Xevious was the first arcade game to actually have a television commercial aired for it in the U.S. and Atari promoted the game with the slogan “Are you devious enough to beat Xevious?” and closed the commercial with a tag line branding it “the arcade game you can’t play at home.” It inspired numerous similar games.
