A downloadable game for Windows

From the creator of Daytime Drama and Scoot Hard DX comes the most violent yet cartoony shooter you'll ever play.

You play as Abby - an angel with an attitude and a mysterious past.

After refusing to be a soldier for the dreadful Orkan Corporation that has taken over Heaven, Abby's friends are taken away and Abby reluctantly enlists - only to bust free with a pistol and some armor.

Abby must go through the Orkan Corporation and kick ass and take names to get her friends back!

However, not is all as it seems, as Abby soon will uncover a conspiracy that goes deeper than Heaven itself. She then will have to travel through all the dimensions of the universe to get answers.

Buckle Up For One Hell Of An Adventure!
