Undertale is a 2D adventure game where you don't have to kill anyone. Providing you unique ways to avoid combat, from dancing with a slime to whispering your deepest secret to a knight. However, you could just ignore this option and rain destruction everywhere you go. Pacifist or not, Undertale has a unique "combat" mechanism. To complete an action you must avoid a variety of projectiles.

In Undertale you take the role of a child who has fallen into the long-forgotten monster realm. It is your goal to escape and return to the human world, along the way you'll meet many characters that you can befriend (or not). To assist you on your journey.
