AK-xolotl is an adorable top down shooter that blends cute pixelated graphics, charming characters, and assorted weaponry. You play an axolotl who must defend his pond from invaders, including other animals that want to eat our adorable hero as a tasty snack.

Each successive round gets more difficult, but you also get access to better weaponry as time moves on. The game actually has a very generous number of weapons to choose from, with a total of 15 options. This is the developers first game, born out of boredom from the pandemic. The developers are based in Spain, and originally came up with the idea when looking up whether ‘axolotl’ was pronounced the same in English and Spanish. When they found out it was, they knew they had to make a game about the adorable little creatures.

Compete against your friends

The more predators and other bad guys you are able to fend off, the higher your score will get. You can compete against your friends to see who will get on the scoreboard. The scoreboard is accessible around the globe, so no matter who you are competing against you’ll be able to see who is at the top.

Surprisingly child friendly

Most top down shooters aren’t exactly child friendly, but aside from the use of weaponry this is a remarkably clean game. There’s no gore, cute and charming graphics, and your character even has the ability to redevelop any limbs that may be lost (It is an axolotl after all.) This game is no more violent than Plants vs. Zombies, and has the same goals of defending the home against intruders, so if you’re fine with your child playing that game this one should be fine.

Tons of variations

The developers, 2awesome Studios, definitely doesn’t want you to get bored early with this game. On top of the 15 weapon options there are 3 map variations, six different power ups, and some rare variants to help keep things going. You’ll be facing up across a wide range of decidedly less cute animals, ranging from field mice to ducks, to frogs and even dinosaurs. You never quite know what will be attacking the pond, but since axolotls are squishy and cute, chances are they’ll want to eat you.

Releasing soon

Ak-xolotl isn’t out yet, but it will be releasing very soon on steam. Wishlist it to make sure you get a chance to play as soon as it is available.

All in all, this is a very cute game. While it is difficult to judge the play value of a game before it is released, we can clearly see from the available videos that this game is remarkably well thought out. The game is simple enough for anyone to understand, but challenging enough to keep gamers interested.


If you like games like Plants vs. Zombies and want to try something just as unusual, this game is a fabulous opportunity.
