This game was followed in 2004 by Darxide EMP, an expanded version released for Pocket PCs and Nokia mobile phones.
One of the last 32X games released (and exclusively in Europe), DarXide is a 3-D space shooter, inspired in part by the arcade gameplay of Asteroids. It is one of the few 32X games to used texture-mapped polygons.
