The game contains both PVP and PVE elements. This means that you will fight other players and zombies in the game. In this respect, it is possible to say that it has a wide range of content for mobile games. The game has a tactical depth based on combat mechanics.

Donut Lab co-founder Tim Raiter has this to say about the game:

“Last year, we were thinking that we were very close to launch. But then we decided that it wasn’t ready yet because we had this system of characters, where you need to combine characters with different weapons and different perks. It was like too complicated. And we decided to make the game simpler. We completely updated the all character system. Now we have 10 amazing characters. It’s a completely different game from what it was a year ago.”

Raiter says that after feedbacks, they made changes to make the characters more mature, and the game will continue to evolve. The team also contributed significantly to the success of the game.
