Fast, dangerous, powerful. Scary! Near invulnerable. At first… Due to toxic environment, its life gradually decreases. Respawns.
Faster creature is killed, the more bounty received. Creature stats are scaled to the duration of the game: Starts off nigh invulnerable, but speed, power, health, armor, decrease as time goes by. Expected average lifespan to be 2-3 minutes. Creature lifespan < 2-3 min Scale the starting stats higher = increased difficulty. Creature lifespan > 2-3 min Scale the starting stats lower = decreased difficulty. The game adjusts creature stats and behavior dynamically, making the game fit to the players’ playing styles. Game is completely customized for the player.
