The world has been dominated by dark forces since the beginning of human history. Known as the Masters of Mankind 8DAYS by those directly under their control, these forces will use any means necessary to protect their own interests including starting wars.

  • Full Platinum trophy.
  • Opening tutorial section.
  • Twin stick shooter gameplay.
  • Two playable characters Wasp (female) and Ghost (male)
  • Huge array of weapons to pick up and use.

  • You always restart with how you first came into the level.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
