Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great concept, art, and game. The only problem I have is the glitch where I got stuck under the arena and could kill them all without getting hurt


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

I love the game's style, feel, and looks, but the control scheme feels to clumsy. I have my three fingers all cramped next to each other trying to coordinate a running then a quick shot or slice and they end up hitting he wrong keys and I screw up and die. This can be solved by a simple letting the players set up their own keys for how they want to play it. A fun little game otherwise.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

This game has great potential for a longer game, either make a sequel or completely revamp this one. Of course if you don't plan on either of those I suppose it's alright. The mechanics were a bit slippery at first but I got the hang of it soon and was hackin' and slashin' my way through those yakuza. Not really one I would replay, but's that's probably just me, there are tons of other people who love these masochistic games where death is a constant occurrence. Great story by the way! Hoping for a sequel!
