pretty fun, but...

i gave this a 7 because it is way too difficult for novice typers like me. i have to looke down at the keyboard to type and it is really hard to focus on the game at the same time as the keyboard. 3 out of 5

Amazing Game!

The graphics are extremely fluid. The cartoonie effect really makes me feel like a funky samurai!

Sound is pretty sweet as well, nothing to improve upon there.

This game is friggin' fun! Very, very addictive. You've done very well RetroArts. Definite favourite.

If this doesn't make it on the front page I'll be disappointed.

10/10

Very nice!

This is a great game. I love the idea behind it. The graphic style is excellent as is the music.
