Having seemingly overthrown the villainous Kraken eight years prior, little did the heroic International Alliance know that the Evil Factory would be making an alarming comeback. Take control of newly recruited Leo as he single-handedly battles his way through malicious monsters and takes down the Kraken once and for all!

To move, hold down the left or right – decided in the game settings – side of the screen and drag in the direction you want to go. The opposite side of the screen contains two buttons, the upper being the primary weapon and the lower the secondary. Tap or tap and hold to unleash the power of your artillery, but keep in mind that the secondary weapon can only be used once each battle!

▲ A red line indicates which direction the enemy’s attack will head – use it to keep out of the way and plan your offense!

▲ Lifting your thumb from the screen triggers “Time Warp” which temporarily slows down time. When the purple gauge to the top-right is depleted, it can’t be used again.

▲ Learn more about and upgrade your equipped weapons by tapping into “Equip” from the main menu.

Each level contains a boss or group of bosses that you will have to defeat in order to clear the stage and continue. From a giant explosive barrel rolling walrus to groups of swift Kraken soldiers, use your tact to whittle down the enemy’s HP indicated at the top of the screen to reign victorious, collect a cash bounty, and gain XP!

Need a breather from battle? Tap into “Extras” from the main menu to access special mini-games, unlocked by collecting game cartridges hidden throughout the Evil Factory building. Tapping onto the lower-right trophy icon also brings up missions you can undertake to earn extra coins, which in turn can be used to purchase new weapons and helmets. Keep your wits about you, upgrade your armory, and aim to destroy the Factory for good!
