The game is set inside a skyscraper in a post-apocalyptic Cyberpunk world, littered with graffiti and neon lights. You play as the last Ghostrunner, a cybernetic super-solider, tasked by The Architect to save the remains of humanity from The Keymaster and their army of brutal thugs.
Each mission is like it's own little combat puzzle box, where movement and momentum are key to your success. Playing as a cybernetic ninja, you, like your enemies, die after only a single strike. You can expect to try missions many times over as you attempt to plot a successful and bloody path through each level. However, any frustration generated by your failed attempts is tempered by how quickly you can get back into the action to try again.
A variety of increasingly challenging enemies will block your path through the tower, but your progress will be aided by four unlock-able special abilities and an upgrade system that allows you to tailor your powers to the specific requirements of each mission. The further you progress, the more special abilities and upgrades you have at your disposal and the more you can use. For the completionist, there are also artefacts and sword skins to find scattered about each level.
Rated for younger players in Australia. Rated Mature Accompanied (MA 15+) for Strong Violence.
Ghostrunner: Complete Edition
The Assist Mode, added after launch as a free update, offers a slightly easier experience that avoids the normal one-hit-death challenge. Assist Mode provides your character armour to deflect a number of hits before you die.
