About

The runaway princess returns from the "evil" demon realm as a succubus, capturing people to form her succubus squad and power it up with human spirit energy. To end the tyranny of her former kingdom she will corrupt it into a new demon realm.

How to Play

On PC, play with the keyboard, or a controller or mouse with three buttons. On keyboard, the arrow keys are the directions and the Z,X,C keys are Buttons 1,2,3.

On touchscreen, swipe with one finger for directions. Button 1 is on whenever a finger is held down. To toggle Button 2, tap with a second finger while holding down the first finger. For Button 3, tap with a third finger while holding down two fingers.

  • Push directions to move your succubus squad in formation.
    • Move into unarmed or defeated humans to capture them. Women become succubi and join your squad. Men give increasing point bonuses and energy for bombs. Succubi holding enough men unlock special capturing abilities in focus mode.
  • Press and hold Button 1 to rapid-fire demonic energy bolts at hostile humans and war machines in front of you.
    • When you defeat enemy humans, you have limited time to capture them before they bleed out or fall to their deaths. Any human's death also kills all of your captives, resetting the capture point bonus.
  • Press and hold Button 2 to enter focus mode.
    • When playing with keyboard or controller, your movement slows down for precision dodging. Your special capturing ability is increased capture radius.
    • Allies assume a more aggressive formation. When firing they autoaim at nearby enemies. Their special capturing ability is flying out to capturable humans, but they are vulnerable to enemy fire while doing so.
  • Press Button 3 to detonate a bomb in front of you, if you have enough bomb energy for one.
    • The bomb blast damages enemies (even through cover), blocks their fire, and sends capturable humans to you.
    • Capture men to gain bomb energy, and hold onto them to slowly charge more bomb energy over time.
  • Press Escape key to pause the game. Press Up and Down to highlight an option and Button 1 to select it, or click or tap on an option. Press Escape key again to resume.
