Using their unique skills to overcome ingenious puzzles, endure hostile environments and battle deadly robot armies, Dal and Gwyn must save their captured crewmates Jankom Pog, Rok-Tahk, Zero and Murf. But they soon discover a deadly new enemy, one that will stop at nothing to destroy the Protostar and change the very course of history!
Players can choose to play as either Dal or Gwyn solo or in 2-player cooperative mode as they try to rescue their scattered crew. Dal and Gwyn have their own unique abilities and weapons.
