Its not bad
In fact, its good.
There is a lot of these games lately, but as the others you have your own 'skin' if anything.
Also, I noted a glitch, I passed 1200 meters, and I got the medal for 100km (100'000).
I found this weidly compelling.
At first I thought something like "bah, this is crap", though I ended up completing it.
I got a old school RPG feel from it, though where this one lacked in many aspects, I think you have hte skills to take this on much longer.
I liked it, even though I did not.
If nothing else it served to entertain me for a few minutes.
Its a really cool effect, the retro part of me squealed like mad.
The graphics are simple.
Though, the controls were somewhat unresponsive, there were more then one time where I tried moving and shooting, and nothing happened, and I died.
Sometimes It refused me to jump at all, so I fell into the lava thing rater often.
I doubt it is my skills as a gamer, but it might be something on my side that does it.
In either case, you get a 7 for originality and it was fun playing it ^^
This is nice and all. But it is no different from MSPaint, that every windows user has.
I can only guess how much coding is in this, but it sorta does not do much.
Don't get me wrong, it is nicely made, and it does work, but it is not unique in any way, it need some background music, as well as the question of who would rather draw in a flash program, when they can use a program on eh HDD, which has slightly more features, and can save the pictures.
Im giving you a medium for this, due to the codign I assume is in it. It is nicely made, but it lacks the spice which makes it good.
I like the 'draw the swordline' effect, as it is sorta unique, as well as fun to do.
What annoyed me was that there was no real way to move him, it was click to make him walk agonozely slow, or just us a sword slash to make him move there.
It might have been slightly better, to have a 'move right/left' button. But then again, this might have mad the game too easy.
I have to agree with those that said it was "samurai Jack'ish" but Samurai Jack was a good series, and I liked the ability to play someone that was similar to him.
In later versions, perhaps giving him the 2nd sword of the Daisho as well, he dont have to use it, but every samurai had that pair.
Regardless of my fanboy'ish effect towards the Samurai, I will stop that here, and continue on the Game itself.
The enemies where simple, but that is to be expected of a system like this, as well as that the samurais trained their whole life, so this made sense. What did not make sense was the shield bearers, The shields where eitehr wood, or some leather thing. And a samurai's slash would have halved that without a question. I understand the use of a harder enemy, but perhaps give them a metal shield, or be more skilled with the blade.
All in all, it is a great game, and Im rather sure I will play it more then once in the future.
