///////// INTRODUCTION /////////

SUGAR OVERKILL: ARENA is a 2d platformer shooter about shooting waves of candy-mutants. 

///////// THE WORLD /////////

A long time ago, a greedy company on planet earth wanted to make the perfect candy recipe. The fools thought that nuclear matter and candies could go well together.  Doing their experiments threw the world in a state of chaos. Since then, the world is not the same. It is filled with radioactive sugar that alters and mutates life forms.

///////// GAMEPLAY /////////
In SO:A you are a candy hunter. Meet up with your favorite barman and take on a contract. There are always big mutants causing trouble, that's where you come in.
Enter their lair and fight enough of their minions to bring them out. Killing enemies and destroying their portals might give you a candy-up! They are very common in the Sugar World. Upon eating one, you become more powerful in a random way (depends on the taste). There are 4 types of candy-ups: common, rare, epic and legendary. Those candies help you get strong enough to survive and beat your target.

///////// CHARACTERS /////////

There are currently seven playable characters. They all are Candy Hunters with experience and big guns.

She's a walking nuclear bomb. She wipes mutants with bullets and takes care of the big ones with the power of nukes.

Dislikes: Marshmallax, marshmallows, marshmallands (she really should  move out)

 --- Stomper ---
