This game is based on the popular Xonix, with much the same rules and objectives. AirXoniX is like the original Xonix, in that you are the controller of a device that moves around a field, which is populated by a number of monster sized balls. The aim of the game, as in the first version is that you must clear the balls away and create open field space. Collect the right bonuses to get life, raise your score and time and to slow down the advance of mines and balls. This modern take on an old classic elevates the game to new heights, with a whole range of new monsters and exciting bonuses, all presented in full 3D. The game is complemented with striking special effects and great 3D sound.
