Gratuitous violence and superfluous displays of horrific gore

Consumers need to know that while this masterfully created 2D fighting game is fun and has nice cartoony aesthetics, it is absolutely not for kids. Many attacks results in over the top displays of blood and organs getten strewn across the playing field, with blood being permanent. Your character can stop on the opponent's head repeatedly resulting in a complete mush with brains and blood literally exploding out. Other attacks include stabbing with extreme blood spray, slashing resulting in organs protruding out and and many other attacks that will shock the average gamer. Not to mention the disembowelled and disfigured corpses hanging in some maps which will make your stomach churn. Overall, if you are an adult and can handle extreme cartoon gore than you'll enjoy this game.
