It's short and fun but also challenging. The goal is simply to beat your high score, climb the online leaderboards and last as long as you can. It's ideal for 5 minute breaks or parties (where everyone can work together and yell at the person playing).
There are 30 levels and a final boss. It offers three modes:
- Family Friendly Mode: remove all references to violence and shooting for an experience better suited to younger players.
- Practice Mode: disable the strict time limit to practice in a casual, stress-free environment.
- Memory Mode: unlock this challenge mode to truly put your skills to the test.
- Difficulty: Family Friendly Mode removes violence and shooting. The Practice Mode removes the time limit to reduce stress. There's also a harder Memory Mode that requires to retain clues after they have vanished.
- Reading: A few instructions to read, with white pixel style text on dark background.
- Controls: One stick and one button controls. It also supports single touch via touch screen or mouse. You can adjust controller sensitivity.
- Image calibration: You can't disable screen shake but the visuals are bright and clear. You do need to distinguish relatively nuanced features on the characters to identify the right one.
- Audio calibration: Control sound and music volume separately.
