Mechanics

Regardless of the place in which we are currently in our main goal is to eliminate hordes of enemies.

The key to success is to be able to change your weapons accordingly to a situation, perform dodges and counterattacks. All our actions are monitored by a scoring system that is rates our every move charging a special multiplier gives us a chance to top the current record.
