|As an added bonus there are achievements for destroying vending machines.|
Xenowork features 50 levels filled with one of three basic tasks for your very Samas Aran looking heroine- kill specific mutations, blow up equipment, or retrieve data from computer terminals and then get to the elevator and exit the floor. It offers very repetitive missions and gameplay, but the entertainment value somehow manages to make the fun last throughout all of them.

Each weapon can also gain levels by picking up blue gear drops from killing a bevy of mutants throughout the floors. Lowering the overheating time, increasing damage, or adding to the rate of fire speed.
Xenowerk is the simplest of run-and-gun shooters, but it is also an incredibly fun one. It can be a bit monotonous at times, because most of the levels and enemies look relatively the same, but the consistent action and immersive atmosphere pull you in and make up for it. Xenowerk is a great mutant slaying horror-adventure. With the way the story ends, I really hope there is either an add-on expansion or a sequel. There's always room for more mutant slaughtering.
