The game takes place in a world allegorical to the spiritual aspects of the human heart. The player represents a Christian who enters his own heart to do battle with spiritual forces of temptation and to become a true ‘Saint of Virtue.'[6]
The game features four levels, each representing a spiritual obstacle to the player’s journey towards becoming a ‘Saint of Virtue.’ Enemies – floating masks representative of negative moral choices – appear frequently in the game, and must be destroyed using the Sword of the Spirit, which fires blue bolts. Players can pick up power-ups like the Shield of Faith, which reduces the damage taken by enemies, and “Spiritual health,” which boosts the player’s health bar.[7]
