Rated 5 / 5 stars

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.

This is very good.

Its educative in some way, also a nice way to train blind typing in a fun and entertaining way. I liked the retro japanese style. Really nice style. I hope I'll see more of these in the future.

One of the best typing games ever IMO. Loved the music and the graphics. btw is there something wrong with the top scores table? All of them say DKZ or something with 0 kills... Except for mine, but that's the only one that's different.

RetroArts responds:

The game only features a local highscore table. That's why only your score is showing.

Very nice!

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