Hack & Slash TO VICTORY!

Overview
Croixleur is a high-speed, hack-and-slash arcade action game by the talented Japanese indie developer souvenir circ. Gameplay is reminiscent of the Devil May Cry series’ Bloody Palace mode as our protagonist, Lucrezia Visconti, battles her way through floors of ongoing monsters in a ritual called ‘the Adjuvant Trial’.

Story
Ilance: a land ruled over by a brave and wise Queen, and in which two factions, the Aristocrats and the Knights, have for generations vied for power.

Tonight, Lucrezia Visconti, top student of the Aristocrat academy Besier, will do battle in ‘the Adjuvant Trial’. This ritual, which has been held since the founding of the nation, decides which faction will hold military and political authority, and protect the Queen, the living symbol of the realm. Competing against her in the trial is top student of the Knight academy Scelta and former childhood friend, Francesca Storaro.

The fate of the nation is at stake as these two girls undergo a trial in which there can be only one victor.

Game Modes
Croixleur features 3 game modes:

Story Mode
Fight your way through the Adjuvant Trial to beat your rival Fran and claim victory for the Aristocrat’s academy of Besier! Defeat all the monsters on a floor to open a portal to the next stage. Multiple routes and endings await, depending on your performance!

Score Attack Mode
Defeat as many enemies as possible within a 3 minute time limit and rack up the highest score you can! The game ends when time runs out or when your HP reach zero.

Survival Mode
Battle for survival against a never-ending swarm of monsters and score as many points as possible can before you are defeated! The game ends when your HP reach zero.
