Hellbreed is a fantasy hack-and-slash game set in the world of Manjuri. The player can choose one of three character classes at the beginning of the game: the mighty Warrior, the agile Huntress or the brute Wall Crusher. The player advances throughout the game by unlocking the net levels within the world. Further, as the player advances, he or she receives new items to equip or new pets, which will follow the main character into battle. Up to six players can join forces and fight the foes facing them on their path.
