We are going to dive into the gameplay a little more in depth here to give you an idea of it. The main concept of the game remains same over the period of time back then it was fast pased high reflex and it’s a pleasure seeing that it is still relevant today the main concept remains unchanged except for the game play it’s more enchncahed and visually appealing.
