About game

The user experience of the game is quite friendly. It will take about 3-5 hours to complete. The game runs on every OS from version 2.3.1 and only needs less than 1GB of space. It appealing user interface immerses you in a world like you have never seen before. The background graphics are really a site to behold. Its display takes you in and you get lost in the interactive gaming experience.

The game follows two characters, who by some odd chance, their paths cross.
