A gory puzzle game that is fun to play but more importantly, easy to get into and start slaying. It plays a lot like a digital version of those old slider puzzles you got as a kid, Navigates the level, and take out the pesky kids without getting killed. It has a lot of humor and the gore really isn’t that bad at all its very light. Daily death means you always have a reason to check in daily. Marathon is for your long session and the story is played to just get variety and new costumes. It is a game that whilst fun, is basically the same game over and over and that can get tiresome but for a small price, it’s worth it just to give your brain a workout. Little has changed as the game makes the jump from handheld to the big screen on Playstation 4 and 5.
