Chess, but all your army has gone over to the white side, leaving you with nothing but your royal shotgun and your wounded pride. Carried by your dark folly, you decide it's time to teach those white pieces to fear the Shotgun King.

Every turn, you may either move your king or shoot at enemy pieces, after what you'll need to move again to reload your shotgun. Avoid checkmate and kill the enemy king to complete the floor. After each floor, you may choose between two random combinations of one upgrade for you and one upgrade for the other side. Choose wisely and keep on winning floors and you just may get your kingdom back.

Runs may take 20 minutes to complete. The game features 5 difficulties, plus an endless mode!

Halloween is Crazy as Hell


Halloween is Crazy as Hell video game Developed by Ciro Fernandes (Cube Legal) and published by Ciro Fernandes (Cube Legal)

Developed by Ciro Fernandes (Cube Legal) and published by Ciro Fernandes (Cube Legal)

Halloween is Crazy as Hell is a roguelike and bullet hell game, where you can have weapons that are completely different from each other with different special abilities, as well as items and little friends that will help you on your journey.

Game Content:

100 Weapons with different abilities;

100 Unlockable ItensWeapons;

4 Characters with different Skills;

Pumpkin everywhere :)

The Curse: Recently, a black font spell was created and then praised for evil. It's powerful, it can make the Sun never rise again, allowing the moon to have the power at the top. The darkness allows the Halloween creatures rise to the surface, with the exception of introverts, who still prefer the underground anyway.

The Weapons: They are all empowered with the Curse, each one carrying a charge of "Super", a still mysterious element that allows them to release the secret abilities of the weapons.

The Mission: Simple, but hard as bone. Find and destroy the source of this dark magic, and destroy all the altars that contain part of this magic along the way.

The journey is long, several friends will show up to help (at least the most of them). Help to end with it. No one can stand walking around and stepping on a pumpkin and slipping and falling to the ground anymore, no one can stand stumbling over bony legs and falling to the ground anymore, no one can stand anymore being frightened by shadowy bats and falling to the ground! This Halloween is Crazy as Hell!
