This game only has 3 usable guns, and it’s Revolver, Rifle, Silenced Uzi. They use Text To Speech for character’s voice not original voice. Rico Phalanx voice also appeared on The Frig but pitched a bit.

At first, they set the price to $2.99 but after many bad critique they lower the price to $1.49 and they thinking to lower it to $0.99.

The average ratings given by Official Beta Testers are 5/10. Junardy suggested to make it able to save a main gun in the pocket and then use a claw not drop it.
This game became a free game because this game lack of popularity. This game also lack of popularity even it has been set to free.
