In the sequel to the top-down scrolling shooter Assault Heroes players must fight hordes of enemies and huge bosses in an armored jeep. This time around there is also access to enemy vehicles such as helicopters and tanks which provide extra firepower in difficult situations. Fighting on foot is more manageable, with the new dodge-roll move used to avoid enemy fire, and certain areas are only accessible on foot. There are also less powerful versions of all the jeep's weapons including the new ice cannon which can freeze enemies in place so they can be shot to make them shatter to pieces.
There is co-op multiplayer, both offline and online, and players can link their weapons to make them stronger.
