This is an action game in which players assume the role of an ancient witch that battles angels and demons in a fantasy world. Players use hand-to-hand combat, pistols, giant scythes, axes, and magic to kill enemy creatures. Players can also perform various finishing moves, which depict exaggerated and intense acts of violence: enemies thrown into spinning spiked wheels; characters decapitated by a guillotine; a dragon ripping characters apart—large blood-splatter effects and gore can be seen frequently. During the course of the game, some female characters perform suggestive taunts and poses (e.g., opening their legs, dancing on poles); outfits are occasionally shed during battle, with characters' breasts and buttocks partially exposed. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
