Game Play

You inhabit a body to fight with. When that body is killed,if there is a living enemy nearby (other that a boss) you can posses them. Each time you do this it costs you some of your spirit energy. If your body dies and you are out of energy or there is not a living, non-boss enemy nearby, game is over.
