The game's main nature is a story that is repetitive, making the player ascend the castle one time after another in order to kill the king of the castle, the game's main villain the God King (and the deathless). At the beginning of the game the player's character will be slain by the God King, and the player will subsequently take the role of his descendant. This cycle continues every time the player fails in his attempt to slay the God King. As each cycle passes, the enemies increase in level and difficulty making it harder to progress through the game. The game has no virtual joysticks, instead movement is scripted and players move from room to room. However, in each room players can move the camera around to search the room for various objects including treasure and potions, as well as points of interest which allow the player to move into other areas.
