Summary: A solid game that definitely has an audience. Might lack replay value, could be too short or there are some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun. How we score: The Destructoid Reviews Guide

Reminiscent of series such as Pikmin and Overlord, it puts you in control of mindless minions who, in this case, do your demonic bidding against a...
