Input can be a bit unresponsive sometimes when it comes to the combo
But the game is pretty fun

cool game, it's pretty hard though :P
I will keep playing this game until I finish it
very good but good lord is it clunky af
Love this game
How do I put full-screen without borders?
That was a very extraordinary entry in my opinion, because you perfectly managed to give it a retro flair thanks to the core gameplay as well as the whole audiovisual representation, but hell, at the same time it's goddamn challenging. <3 Thank you so much for that game! I wrote a short article about it as well as made a little gameplay video of it. :) Looking forward to your games in the future!
Okay so a very addictive game to be sure, I must've played for like an hour and only got to the second area before getting hit by everything got too frustrating for me :P the hitting projectiles back feels really nice to do. I think making things move a bit faster would be good, and the land mines need a better way to telegraph where they are I kept taking damage from those with no time to react. certain enemy placements are really hard to get past without the shuriken and I didn't always get them on every run. But all in all a solid experience.
Very nice graphics and fun. Certain things that bugged was that the controls are a bit stiff which makes it hard to dodge enemies, and ninjas seem to have longer range than you which makes it even more difficult. Also the jumping down from trees are triggered when you are too near imo, in general thats the only thing that bugs me, the lack of dodgebility.
yeah I kinda agree, I had some trouble getting past enemies, and the wall climbing is a little awkward to do when you're trying to jump up onto land again, but other than that really cool
I love the Mega Man X soundfont.
Really the only big problem with this game is the lack of gamepad support.
Otherwise had a really good time reflecting bullets and stars.
The retro style is very successful. Just out of curiosity, how long did it take you to make a game of this quality?
It's an ok game, and it feels like, if mastered, it would feel great to cut through people. I did not master it in 10 minutes and so felt a tad frustrated.
It's not all bad - I made a video on it which I think has a more positive vibe:
control is so stiff, boss is so annoying, and there is nothing about 'assassin'
Just use knife to cut bullets.
The game looks and sounds really cool, however I find controls quite stiff. Very often I'm trying to pull off an epic combo, but I'm ending by taking few hits.
Liked this top stuff its def not easy here is my playthrough, thanks
I gave it a shot, and at first I thought it was pretty good, a little challenge that was still pretty fun, but once I got to the boss it felt like the difficulty was cranked to 11. I didn't realize until like and hour of playing later, that I was fighting him wrong, mainly cause I guess I probably assumed I wouldn't be able to climb the walls of inside a lab like i could a rock wall or a tree on the way getting there. I got some little points that I think could make the game less rage inducing, and more fun and balanced (and maybe small bit more stream friendly for the download version). Sorry if it seemed I was being too critical, I was just very exhausted and the difficulty caught me by surprise, but I did actually enjoy the gameplay and the style. Overall, great job! I hope the video is at least helpful if not entertaining.
Gave it a go...
Incredibly fun game, although difficult, I managed to finish.
omfg this is amazing.
I got stuck in the options menu.
This is really cool! I'll have to play when I got some more time. Do you mind if ppl stream your game?
Of course not, it would be fun to watch. :D
Incredibly captivating! I loved it from the heart. Would not it be possible to make a version for Android?
It would be possible but I'm not very interested. I don't think an action game like this would work well on mobile too :p
Awesome game, reminds me of the old school Ninja Gaiden a bit! :3
Instant classic in my book.
Damn that's good.
Really nice looking game. i love the pixel style. it's also FREAKING DIFFICULT. great job
Thanks for playing it, that was super fun to watch! You actually did pretty well. By the way, sorry for the missing description for sub-weapons, looks like I accidentally removed it when editing the page earlier.
Loved how it actually seems like a shippable SNES game, the game is very challenging and feels very well polished! :) Thank you for this experience!
Jump Attack is so coool !!!
This is awesome, love it! Thanks so much.
Really good game, challenging and fun :) I really liked the SNES-like graphics.
