Set in a Chinese fantasy world, the story is about the former imperial officer Feng Huang in his quest to recreate the Yue Dynasty by defeating the current emperor, Lao Hu.
After the death of Emperor Wei Xing, the Yue Dynasty had fallen and the warrior Lao Hu took over the kingdom and became the emperor after telling the public lies. Since he was the only one who knew the truth, Feng Huang left the Imperial Army but was hunted down by Lao Hu's soldiers and had lost his seven spears across the land after being defeated. After being found to be alive, Feng Huang had hired help from a caravan to help him get away from the Emperor's assassins and recruit people to begin a rebellion against Lao Hu after finding his lost spears.
As a third-person camera game, the player controls the character Feng Huang in a combination of combat, platforming and puzzle game elements. The player typically has to navigate Feng Huang through a long series of tests, trials, and mazes to reach goals by fighting many enemies and navigating through the maps.
Feng Huang's weapons are the Seven Spears of the Phoenix, which will change the level and attack power of him when a spear is found. After finding a spear, the moveset of Feng Huang will change by adding another spear into his fighting style and extending the combo and power.
A special ability called "Phoenix Charge" can be achieved once the first spear is available for use, this ability will allow Feng Huang to have a temperary power-up, doubling the attack power and slowing time down.
