XType Plus is both a budget title and a remake with extra content, but is it worth even the low cost of $3, or is it just another half-baked Indie title at best?
    To set itself apart from its browser and Apple App Store freeware originals, XType plus has different modes to choose from, with a new Plus Mode exclusive to this version. There's also a Classic Mode, and for each mode there is an online leaderboard showing All Time, This Week, and …
