In an exciting journey inspired by classic anime, you will be immersed in the cyberpunk world of Mullet MadJack, set in the 90’s… 2090s to be precise. Your mission is to rescue the world’s most famous influencer from the clutches of a dangerous criminal organization comprised of powerful billionaire robots.

In the future, vigilantes are addicted to dopamine, and to get their fix, you’ll have to overcome deadly challenges in each skyscraper, floor by floor, all in pursuit of securing your own dopamine hit. Get ready to face each level and claim your dose of adrenaline.

As you progress through the building’s floors, a crowd hungry for action follows your every move through live streaming broadcasts. This public exposure creates additional tension, increasing the pressure on you and the need to achieve increasingly more impressive feats. Your battle is not only for the liberation of the kidnapped influencer, but also for the preservation of your own reputation and the entertainment of those who are watching.

Get ready for a journey filled with dangers, thrilling challenges, and the aesthetics of the golden age of anime.


  • Exciting and dynamic combat: Race against time and infiltrate a building alone, overcoming each floor until you reach your objective.
  • Campaign mode: Clear floors filled with robots, and in crucial moments, execute ultraviolent finishes on your enemies to survive.
  • Survival mode: Utilize your skills in an endless mode and outdo your friends.
  • Unique visual and art style: The contrasting colors between black and vibrant neon evoke the aesthetics of violent and adult anime from the era of VHS tapes.
  • Engaging narrative: Set in an Old School cyberpunk world full of robots, the aesthetics of 90s anime merge with an action-packed environment.
  • Nostalgic soundtrack: Inspired by the synthwave genre, the soundtrack sets the tone and urban atmosphere of the game.
  • Evolve your character: Enhance your character with smart choices so that you can reach the top floor in the best possible time or you’ll have to try again, all in the best Rogue-Lite style. But remember that each upgrade will affect how the game is played.
