He can overcome death with the help of a magical pendant whenever he dies. But this return from death has a cost to be paid in the form of age. Whenever he comes back to life, he becomes older. Will he be able to take his revenge without getting old enough for a fight? This journey of revenge goes through different phases and locations like hallways, clubs, suburbs, and more. Everything on his way can be used as a tool to fight enemies like objects, weapons, chairs, and tables. As soon as the player gets closer to the victory, he discovers more and more skills and powers.
