Fast playtimes allow players to get their gaming fix in minutes, not hours, while diverse characters, abilities, and game types offer limitless opportunities for creative strategies and intense, climatic struggles. No two games are the same! For a small fee, the game also offers premium features, such as additional characters as well as a map editor that allows players the ability to create their own custom levels.
