Darxide (sometimes spelled DarXide, pronounced "dark side") is a shoot 'em up for the Sega 32X by Frontier Developments, released in 1995 only in Europe.[1] It was also scheduled to be a launch title for the unreleased Sega Neptune.

It was followed in 2004 by Darxide EMP, an expanded version released for Pocket PCs and Nokia mobile phones.[2]

One of the last games released for the 32X, Darxide is one of the few games on the 32X that uses texture mapping.[3]

Gameplay is similar to that of Asteroids, only in 3D. Players must destroy a number of space rocks in order to complete each level.
