You start with a simple blaster along with a close-combat melee attack. These are extended with grenades and more advanced moves like rolling under shots, jumping on and biting off enemies' heads, temporarily scaring other enemies, and digging underground to drag enemies down with them. As you progress you can find power-ups, drive vehicles, pilot a UFO and even ride on top of a Yeti.
The result is a shooting game that doesn't take itself too seriously - not seriously at all. Sitting somewhere between arcade classics like Metal Slug and films like Men in Black it's a strange combination of parts that are surprisingly well-fitted together.
You can play this game in the following styles:
8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. Although if you die you can just start again, it is one hit and you're dead. You need good reactions to shoot as well as move around efficiently to dodge bullets.
