Xero Hour is a sci-fi platforming adventure coming to iOS in 2020. As Doctor Xero, an interstellar ancient alien mad scientist, the player crash lands on a hostile planet, and they have to explore to find rare materials to rebuild his ship. Before he can advance to new areas, he must defend himself against waves of enemies, as players use simple touch controls to charge Doctor Xero’s ion bombs. Based on the music of the band Third Ion, which regularly pays homage to gaming classics and sci-fi, Xero Hour has a rich backstory to draw from – bringing many ideas for sequels and expansions along with it.
