Unusual Perspective: Ghostrunner is a unique and challenging game, with half-open and primarily vertical levels. The vertical design brings this unique perspective to life allowing the players to choose their own path. Vertical design also contains elements of exploration and learning through environmental storytelling about the player character’s background, rationale, and overall game world.
One Hit, One Kill: One-Hit-One-Kill system is, for sure, one of the most important features alongside the movement mechanics. The player and opponents have one hit point. Through instant restart, the player gets to know game level layouts and eliminates enemies using extraordinary mobility and Sensory Boost (slow-motion ability).
Parkour Movement Mechanics: Ghostrunner’s movement system is very dynamic featuring abilities which let the player run on walls, slide and slice foes, dashing with gusto, time manipulation, leaping and bounding off neon-lit walls, and so much more.
Cyberpunk Setting: The game takes place in the future, after a global cataclysm where the remains of humanity live in an ominous neon tower built by The Architect, who died mysteriously years ago. Everyone knows the truth, no one says it aloud.
