The game takes place in alternate world in a country called Murica and the story is simple: Demons have hidden evil artifacts that are corrupting houses; destroy these artifacts and pacify corrupt neighbors and save the world. Choose a character and start building up your house, add blocks, defenses and weapons to the house to make it more powerful. Add more characters to your house to benefit from a more varied arsenal.

Replay potential is strong, as players will seek to better their scores and try different character combinations on specific levels. Rack up Dominance Points by destroying evil artifacts and spend them on upgrades for your house and characters, or maybe some specials. Earn Karma Points for good deeds and form alliances with some neighbors to increase your chance at victory. Players will have to manage their actions; you don’t want too many enemies at once.
