Wielding an arsenal of futuristic weapons, abilities, and stolen Overlord powers, you will shoot, smash and obliterate your way through their trap-ridden towers.
Taking down these ruthless Overlords will prove to be no easy task – as you face them, they will adapt and evolve, changing the challenges of their towers and putting your skills to the test. Learn to turn their powers against them, discovering and honing powerful upgrades like the Railgun Punch and Airblade Attack to bring down the hordes of enemies that overrun the city.FIGHT LASER WITH LASER
