The cost of magic is high, however, and you will age considerably each time you come back to life. Time is the price you will pay for your revenge.
The game’s delightfully hand-drawn art style pays homage to Kung Fu movie classics where themes of revenge and redemption are timeless tales, all blending seamlessly with Sloclap’s gameplay expertise.
