A nice Hack& Slash sidescroller. The pixel graphics are great. You think you're playing a game from childhood. The music fits well into the setting. Each opponent must be defeated in a different way. Finding this weak spot and then packing is the challenge. Errors quickly end in death. So it's not that simple. Some places are even very difficult. The war and its atrocities are shown relentlessly. Everything fits together very well. A great game. Don't miss taking a look.
