One of the most visually striking and gratuitously violent games of the previous console generation came out, perhaps surprisingly, for the Nintendo Wii. Sega's MadWorld took place predominately in black and white, but blood continued to spurt out in bright red. The story was told through comic book panels, with comparisons to Sin City basically writing themselves.

That game never received a sequel, but while the freshly ported SXPD belongs to a different genre entirely, it comes with a similar flavor. Though this time, red isn't reserved purely for bodily fluids.



SXPD takes place in a dystopian future where the 52nd state of America is ran by the richest man in the country. Inhabitants are free to do whatever they want, as long as they can pay the price. Laws are enforced by an all-female police force known as the SXPD (if your first hunch was that SXPD stood for sexy police department, you more or less hit the nail on the head). The game consists of reading through several pages of a comic book before diving into the action and taking first-hand control over the high speed police chases.

Despite similarities to MadWorld, the developer was actually inspired by 3D Deathcase. As was the case in that 1983 title, players view the action from atop a motorbike.

SXPD costs $1.99 and doesn't contain any in-app purchases. The wealthy megalomaniac that runs the city of New Royale may permit a lot of things, but even he can't stand those.
