While most endless runners have you controlling the character who happens to be running, in this game you don’t control the character at all.

Back in the beginning of March 2015 we reported on a new cross-platform Hack ‘n Slash RPG that would be heading our way soon called Angel Stone.

Of course this is all based off of the initial footage we watched of Angel Stone’s gameplay. However, with a little luck, you could end up playing Angel Stone before it launches now that beta sign-ups are now live.
