Instant classic. Ingenious gameplay. Music to die for. Flawless implementation.

Much like "A Ride...", I can already tell this well never leave my phone and/or any devices I own.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

The description, screens and even the trailer don't exactly clarify the nature of this game. Thanks, yasasnermana, for posting gameplay vid which helps clarify this is Friut Ninja with paint brushes: a twitchy, slash the lines before they hit the edge of the screen kinda game. What would be cool is if the screen interaction drove character melee animations depicting the battle.
