Upcoming AR shooter Devil’s Purge is coming to iOS later this year. From indie game studio ONTOP, the title melds Christian beliefs with a metal aesthetic. Part Pokemon GO!, part DOOM, the game lets you use your phone as your exorcism kit. You’ll uncover hidden demons and vanquish them as you attempt to thwart the devil himself.

In Devil’s Purge, you’re tasked by God with vanquishing the many demons plaguing the earth. Taking inspiration from the Roman Catholic church and Baroque art, this shooter with roguelike elements features a variety of Biblical characters who will appear to you between exorcisms. 

Along the way, you will receive blessings from Jesus Christ and the Archangels, who will aid you in your quest. You can combine multiple blessings to create new and inventive ways to deal with the demons. You’ll use your camera to reveal demons lurking nearby and aim at their hearts with your phone’s flashlight to pepper them with Holy bullets. Additionally, you’ll need to stay vigilant and dodge demonic attacks.
