This is a strategy role-playing game in which players control a group of characters on a quest to bring order to the Netherworld. From a 3/4–overhead perspective, players use swords, axes, and magic spells to engage monsters and human-like characters in turn-based combat (e.g., selecting attacks/weapons from a menu screen). Battles are accompanied by light effects, slashing sounds, and cries of pain; enemies disappear when defeated. One special attack depicts a bullet striking an enemy’s head, which is accompanied by slow-motion and X-ray effects. A few cutscenes depict brief stylized blood effects (e.g., an armored knight emitting blue droplets after getting impaled; the silhouette of blood splatter after a character is struck).

 

During the course of the game, some of the dialogue includes suggestive comments (e.g., “You’ve earned the right to be called a pervert, by sneaking around and peeping on us,” “I just love it when men do things that constitute sexual harassment,” and “You’re so flat, they use your chest to measure if a shelf is straight!”). The game also contains a brief drug reference (e.g., “If you inhale my dust, you’ll get really happy. It might even make you feel like you can fly . . . Just say no, kids! Bad! Bad drugs!”). The words “sh*t,” “a*s,” and “b*tch” can be heard in dialogue.
