In Total Recoil we slip into the role of an soldier. Tanks and similar will attack us from the left and right side. Thus has to be taken down by jump-shots. Therefore we use the "arrow keys" or the "finger" to choose a direction. At the beginning one shot kills us. Later on, if we collected enough gold we can get new recruits with better weapons and more health. Our task will remain the same: Jump from left to right, collect the coins and stars and try not the get hit.
