Every Extend Extra Extreme, also known as E4, is a game for the Xbox 360's Xbox Live Arcade service released on October 17, 2007. It is an expanded version of the popular PlayStation Portable game Every Extend Extra which is, in itself, an expanded version of the 2004 freeware title Every Extend.

The game runs in high-definition 1080i and supports 5.1 surround sound. It supports online multiplayer; Achievements; Leaderboards and GamerScore support; and online competitive modes.

Gameplay[edit]

Gameplay screenshot.

Gameplay is simple: the player controls a ship which they can detonate at any time. This causes any enemies within a certain radius to explode, which in turn cause other enemies to explode in a chain reaction. As the game continues more and more enemies populate the screen allowing longer and higher scoring explosions. The player may halt the chain at any time to pick up power-ups (such as to increase enemy speed, add time, add temporary shield) or to start a new chain reaction.

The explosions add a percussive beat to the background music.

The player's ship is destroyed when coming into contact with or being shot by an enemy while the player's shields are down. This resets the level to its initial slow pace and bonus multiplier, therefore hindering the player's scoring.

Types of games[edit]

It contains four modes of gameplay:

E4: The Game Time Unlimited

  • The single-player game.

E4: The Game Time Limited

  • The same as Unlimited, except there is no way to extend time.

S4: Wiz ur Musik (aka Sonic DSP Sound Spectrum Synthesizer)

  • Taps into the music on the Xbox 360 hard drive and creates randomly generated and colorful wire-frame visuals to move across the screen using bass and treble as their director; will also allow players to download E4 songs to the hard drive.

R4: The Revenge (aka Rhythmic Rolling Revenge Revolution)

  • A more conventional shooter mode where players have to avoid enemies and shoot.
