You start the game as an employee of PitchCorp who rebels against the company with a plan to bring it down. As you venture through each of the levels killing your heavily armed ex colleagues you rescue chimps and goats, blow up drug labs and burn all their money. If you can make it to the end levels you will find that the Bo$$ is Satan himself and now obviously you’re going to kill him. Beating Satan is a feat in itself and with no tips on how to kill him you’ll die plenty of times before finally triumphing and it will feel good.
The game play is fast paced from both sides, most enemies are a one shot kill but they will kill you first if you’re not quick enough. The arcade levels push for full completion of all objectives but in record time, which can be hard to get the hang of straight away. The first few levels are quite straight forward and easy as the game is still teaching you how to play and lets you get the hang of it first. Each level increases in difficultly adding more enemies to kill and different enemies that throw you off a bit the first time if you don’t know what they do. There is no tutorial for that part, a dog runs at you, you either figure out how to kill it or die in a couple of hits. No consequences if you don’t get it the first time though, you just start the level over and retry the mission again.
Visuals and Music
The arcade style levels are a lot of fun while also being the right amount of challenging. Shoot your way to the top, kill your boss and discover the secret at the end (spoiler if you found the dolls throughout the levels). Defeat giant robots, exploding men with clipboards and try to win without killing any of those mind controlled chimps. A fast paced shooter for a bit of fun and nostalgia, if you don’t get frustrated easily of course.
