Reviving the On-Rails Shooter Genre

Railbreak injects fresh life into the on-rails arcade shooter concept, offering players a captivating experience rich in eye-bleeding visuals and intense action.

Dynamic Weaponry and Vicious Foes

The game boasts an arsenal of sizzlingly flashy weapons, offering a diverse array of firepower. Freeze aggressive foes with ice blasts, zap them with electricity, set them ablaze with incendiary rounds, or opt for unconventional tactics to survive the relentless onslaught of undead adversaries.

Boss battles are no walk in the park either. Face off against formidable adversaries like the Kunoichi or Hacknslash, each with their own diabolical tactics. These bosses not only present a challenge in their standard form but also take the intensity up a notch in ‘Glitched’ forms, enhancing their power, speed, and health.

From random health restoration to grenade roulette, these Glitches add an element of uncertainty, continuously testing the Survivors’ adaptability.
