You blast your way through waves of gangsters and other criminals in retro shooter style. Unlike other side-on beat-em-ups there is little navigation with the world. This is more like a horizontal shoot-em-up rather than brawler. It's a punishingly tough game where you have to restart a level if you die.
As you progress you learn the key to survival is both moving and shooting. You can shoot in two directions (forwards and backwards), unlock new weapons and power-ups as well as saving civilians. As you collect money you can purchase hats that introduce other visual elements into the game.
The result is a game that offers an unusual combination of big brash and silly gangster violence, but with a quaint retro style that reduces makes it feel less impactful and violent.

11+ 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. Players need to be able to have good reactions and aiming. Coping the the hectic rush of enemies and brash sounds and visuals is also important.
