Xyanide’s blend of 2D and 3D gameplay separates it from other shooters - but that's also the source of its problems. Since the game automatically targets enemies on all three axes, players will occasionally find themselves firing into the distance while enemies on the horizontal and vertical axes swarm in for the kill. The developers included a florescent glow around foes that are close enough to collide with the player, and that becomes a key to survival in the later levels.
