What happens when a fallen angel named Harry and a banished demon named Judy pick up a bunch of guns and start shooting their way through hell and heaven to bring down the famed Four Horsemen before they can finally trigger the Apocalypse?

The answer is a Run-and-Gun game named God's Trigger, created by One More Level and published by Techland. Story-wise, it is the anti-Darksiders; gameplay-wise, it plays just like Hotline Miami, if it had co-op and gave its characters supernatural abilities. It was released on April 18th, 2019 on PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One.

Tropes present in God's Trigger:

  • Chain Pain: Judy fights in melee with a chain.
  • Combos: Killing enemies in an unbroken sequence extends your XP multiplier.
  • Cool Shades: Judy always wears these.
  • The Door Slams You: You can do this to knock down nearby enemies, thus opening them up for an execution.
  • Doppelgänger Spin: Judy can create phantom clones of herself that'll distract enemies.
  • Finishing Move: You get to perform these on downed enemies.
  • Heavily Armored Mook: Armored enemies survive two hits rather than one?

  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Harry is an angel, and so his Weapon of Choice is a sword, in contrast to the chain used by the demoness Judy.
  • Inexplicable Treasure Chests: You can find these hidden on the levels, which will generally contain perks.
  • Invisibility: One of Harry's eventual powers is to turn himself invisible for a while.
  • Gameplay Grading: You get a rating at the end of each level.
  • Jedi Mind Trick: One of Judy's powers is to briefly take over the mind of the enemy.
  • Mook Medic: There are priests who'll resurrect fallen enemies.
  • One Hitpoint Wonder: Both of your characters die in one hit, though the same applies to most of the enemies.
  • Optional Stealth: You can sneak up on the enemies and instantly kill them from behind, and can clear out much of the level in this manner. However, you'll be missing out on a lot of potential XP this way, as the time spent to sneak up on your next victim will annul the XP multiplier you got from the previous one.

  • Parrying Bullets: Harry eventually unlocks the ability to do this with his sword.
  • Spikes of Doom: Spikes popping out of the floor are one of the traps you can encounter.
  • Suspiciously Cracked Wall: Harry can slam through such walls.
  • Teleport Spam: Judy can teleport, though only a short distance. She also creates a fiery shockwave whenever she rematerializes.
  • There Was a Door: Harry can storm straight through some weak walls.
