The attention to detail is simply stunning – excellent character animation and a variety of interesting (and relatively intelligent) enemies. You have some decent abilities, such as punching and kicking, crawling, and grabbing onto ledges. And along the game you can collect loads of different weapons too, like petrol bombs, ninja stars, daggers and chainsaws – and for the record, the chainsaw rocks!

The graphics are all really nice, and the music is done really well too. The game overall is chock full of personality, and there's even an optional 2 player mode, in which both play simultaneously within the same screen. A very well crafted game indeed!
