Some innovative elements see the exploitation of the third dimension, the possibility of collecting weapons and / or objects to be used to one’s advantage and a particular management of the grips and contrasts typical of the sliding fighting game.
To mention the presence of the CRAZY bar on the bottom of the screen that loads during the battle allowing you to make super-attacks.
Among the eight selectable characters (characterized among other things by a total absence of names) we find a high school girl and a colored boy with a basketball.
