Sometime In The Last Century,
An Experimenter With Time,
Space And Early Computers
Created A Bizarre Machine.
Although Primitive, The Machine
Became Incredibly Powerful And
Turned Against Its Creator.
Its Power To Corrupt Time And
Matter Was Out Of Control.
A Cloud Of Chaos Descended
Over All The Lands.
Humans And Animals Were
Turned Into Ravenous Beasts.
|Mercenary||A good all-rounder. He is quite mad and enjoys nothing more than experimenting with a collection of unsavory weapons.|
|Brigand||Another well rounded talent and a cut throat bandit to boot.|
|Gentleman||A lean and clever character. He is a dapper chap without a doubt. What he lacks in muscle he makes up with wit.|
|Navvie||The strongest of the six characters. A good fighter with heavy weapons. Although he only has a few specials they are very destructive.|
|Thug||When it comes to characteristics he could pass for the Navvie's brother. The Thug is a mammoth of a man, a little stupid but very powerful.|
|Preacher||The smartest of the six characters but then, he has God on his side. Beware, his perverse nature is not to be trusted.|
The game itself has features of arcade, adventure and role playing genres. The "in-level"
sections are of the top-down action/adventure variety (see screenshots below). In order
to progress, you'll need to do rather more than just blast bad guys! As you explore
the game, you'll find coins and various power-ups to improve your characters. Coins can
be spent at shops at various points through the game, and can be used to increase
weapon power, buy special abilities, or increase statistics such as intelligence, speed,
Whenever you complete a "world" you will receive a password reflecting characters
chosen, and how well you are doing. This allows you to pick up where where you left
off, at a later time.
