Gameplay Instructions

2players (controllers) required!

The game is a capture point style based game. The goal for each player is to capture the middle point. To capture the middle point you must first capture the 3 other points which then will enable the mid point for you to capture.

Beware! The other player will do anything to stop you from winning. A point can only be captured when there is only 1 player on it.

I love the music! Was it made during the jam? What Instrument? :D

Sadly we weren't experienced enough in that area to create our own music from scratch. We've used sound samples and stitched and tweaked those together. I've updated the page to mention these. The instrument is a Lyre , I think.
