Key gameplay features

Death Sentence has blending properties of shooters and off road racing. The shooting aspect is noticed in a game mode where you must avoid or eliminate your opponent. The off road racing appeal comes from the terrain the level takes you at. The player controls any of the characters that he/she choose. From there they’re able to move freely on the course without barriers. Although there is a hidden path the player must stay with or they will be reset to the course. This gives the feature or comfort of an open world without restrictions.

On the ground there will be marks that signal a power up or health to use. These signals are generated randomly for the purpose of what the user feels like doing with the item that he/she have collected. Depending on the level it can throw the opponent of course or destroy them.
