Description : Spawned from the tepid waters of a stagnant
project of mine. This weaponset follows the
chronicles of General Zharkov into the line
between reality and fiction. Go to the Store
to discover weapons such as missile walls,
rice guns, ricochet rifles, and projectile
rainers. Go to the Store to discover a
wealth of insanity, one step after the other
a fight for survival from oneself.
Go to the Store, Zharkov.
