Game Description

Dispense divine justice in this action brawler based on the Book of Enoch and set against a slippery backdrop of art-show visuals. A group of angels, obsessed with humans, has left heaven to live on Earth. This angers God, who decides to flood the planet. One soul, a human working as a scribe in heaven, offers to go to Earth and hunt down the angels instead. Fight through the seven floors of the Tower of Babel, a free-flowing visual world that looks and acts like a Japanese art museum spilled into a lava lamp. Your mission is simple: You handle the wrath. Leave the mercy to the big guy upstairs.
