DUX (video game)

|Genre(s)||Shoot 'em up|
DUX is an independently developed scrolling shooter video game by HUCAST.Net & KonTechs Ltd. for the Sega Dreamcast. The game was released on July 17, 2009 worldwide. There is also a 500-print limited edition DUX with a game soundtrack on a separate disk. The game was available from HUCAST.net, Play-Asia, Videogamesnewyork and various other retailers.
In May 2012, a Kickstarter project for a remake of the game was announced. It was called Redux: Dark Matters and scheduled for a release on PSN, XBLA, Steam and iOS, as well as the Dreamcast, though the latter version is restricted to a thousand copies and solely available as a Kickstarter reward. The project reached its funding goal of $25,000 on 14 May 2012, after only a few days. The Dreamcast version was released on January 27, 2014.
Bordersdown (previously NTSC-uk) scored the game 6/10 commending how the "simple but colourful packaging theme extends throughout the presentation, from the menus to the game stages themselves and it works, with the VGA visuals being a treat to view" but noted that "anyone playing for scores will be disappointed because a bug in the first stage to do with the checkpoint system means it's only worth playing for survival."
