FAN ART

PROS

Characters that you play as all have own feel to them and all have own look and all have own moves and own special moves.

Bosses are all very cool and all have own look and all have own moves to learn to defeat them and all have own movement style to learn.

Gods that you meet in the world are all very cool as all have own look and all offer own bonuses and abilities that can be risky to level them up as you have to sacrifice max health to them.

Art style for the game is very cool and all very detailed.

Lots of power-ups all are very cool and all have own bonuses from adding amount of throwables to increase area of attack of some moves.

Food power-ups are cool as alot of varieties and are very strong giving you bonuses to max HP and strength and more also not very expensive and can go back to shop later in level not a one chance which is nice.

Alot of content for £13.99, has cool art style, enemies, bosses, characters are all unique and offer different playstyles..

CONS

Combos, attacks feel like have no real impact as in don’t seem to knock back the enemies.

Difficulty spikes as frustrating as some encounters can go really easy then other encounters go super hard.

Feel slower than you should as often found myself getting hit after performing a combo where would need to dodge after.
