Arm yourself with psychic superpowers and battle your way through a seven-day gauntlet of action: the Reaper’s Game.
Welcome to Shibuya, a mishmash of attitudes and styles in the heart of Tokyo.
A boy named Neku wakes up in a crowded intersection, alone and unaware of how he got there. Then, he receives a weird text: “Clear this mission...or face erasure.” With that, Neku is thrust into a life-or-death game that sends him scrambling down streets paved with one riddle after another...
What is the Reaper’s Game? Why is Neku a Player, and what is he playing for? Will the Game really end if he survives all seven days? Another mystery is always around the corner.
✔ Intuitive, addictive combat with a twist
Activate your combat abilities, or “psychs,” with simple touch commands like tapping, slashing, and dragging. Comfy with that? Control Neku and his Game partner on the same screen and take the combat up a notch. Like loot? Boost your item drops in battle with the revamped Fusion system.
✔ Deep replay value
Finish the main story to unlock a hilarious bonus chapter, more quests and items to find, new combat challenges, and secret reports that flesh out the story even more.
✔ Explore a living, breathing city
Neku’s sprawling world is based on the real-life Shibuya in Tokyo. Visit real locations and absorb some real Japanese culture through a hip, fantasy lens.
✔ Exciting arcade action
Use the pins you equip in the main story to play Tin Pin Slammer! Take on various in-game NPCs and be the first to knock your opponents’ pins off the table!
✔ Completely redrawn art
Enjoy the game in full HD on your device with art and animation that has been redrawn just for high pixel density
✔ The ultimate soundtrack: 60 songs
Composer Takeharu Ishimoto’s complete, sonically sublime soundtrack is included right in the game with high-quality audio and full vocals.
✔ Wirelessly trade Friend Cards
Exchange profiles with other players, and their avatars will appear in the streets of Shibuya! Not only that, you receive free items for every trade!

What the people are saying:
"I've never felt so connected to the past." -- Anonymous
"I have a newfound love for rabbits and rabbitkind. This game completed changed my worldview" -- Anonymous
"so vintage, much wow" -- Doge
--Goal: Survive as long as possible. The game ends when your health runs out.
--Gain health by collecting carrots.
--Your health drain is constant, due to hunger and the pressure of opposing ideas on the viewpoints of your player.
--Hawks take more health.
--Burrowing (press left and right together) protects you from being hit by a hawk, but increases the constant health drain slightly.

• 3 Tower types with multiple upgrades
• Upgradable central tower
• Engaging and active gameplay
• Large board for multiple strategic decisions
• Music composed by Michael Betz
• Live graphics that react as you play
1) Why isn't there a touch to shoot mode?
Because of the draw walls/drag towers design, the game became extremely complicated with the introduction of a touch to shoot feature. This feature was tested and removed due to impact on game flow.
2) Why is it hard to shoot with the central tower?
Because the central tower is over five times as strong as a fully upgraded attack tower.
3) Why is the only game type survival mode?
Because a level based system is planned for later games. Arcis 2 concepts are planned, but there is no estimated release date.
4) Why can you only pause the game by locking the device?
Try the back button. Once pauses the game, twice returns to the main menu, three times closes the application.
