Play OverviewPlay Overview

Boomerang X (2021) is a shooting platform game where you explore worlds and fight enemies with a boomerang-like shuriken weapon. Unusually, you can warp to your boomerang once thrown meaning you can slice, fly, and blast through arenas swarming with evil creatures.

Play incorporates the usual running and jumping of platform games, but augments this with a flowing teleporting motion made possible by your weapon. Once you've thrown it, you can slingshot directly to it, preserving momentum and throwing yourself through the air. You can use the slow down time feature to hone well-aimed throws to get around, above, and behind your foes. As you progress you upgrade your boomerang with new and powers.

The result is a frantic skill-based game with b-movie aesthetics. From your mummified character to the bowels of ruined civilization you explore, it's a game with a strong sense of style. Something lurks deep underneath these ruined halls, spewing corruption, it's up to you to defeat whatever it is.
