A 2D platformer that utilises the use of a parasitic NPC which will provide the player with enhanced powers but at the cost of their life, these enhanced abilities will also attract other unseen enemies that are drawn by the symbiotic relationship between the two.
Thus making a seemingly advantageous pairing more problems than the player presumed.
