Eve of Extinction is a 3D beat 'em up action title, combining onscreen command elements during play (as in Dynamic Cop) to direct you in the right direction, and help you out of harms way. With the weapon-switching technology, you can change weapons during an attack to increase the attacks power on enemies. When bosses are defeated new weapons are awarded including a crossbow and an axe. These can be upgraded using the ley seeds found throughout the game.
