Samurai Asshole

I originally posted this on Newgrounds in 1999, before the current Portal system.

Your master is dead, and you're out for mindless revenge against everyone! Use the arrow keys to walk, "A" to attack, "S" to jump and "D" to block.

This game was made in Flash 4, which is why the keyboard input is laggy. Flash 4 didn't allow consistent keyboard input, so I had to fudge it to make the character move as smoothly as possible. I was tempted to fix it, but decided to maintain the crappy integrity of the original.

It is also worth noting that Flash 4 didn't support depth swapping, so it was a pain in the butt to make the characters overlap eachother based on their depth on the screen. I don't say this stuff to be boastful, I say it because I want people to appreciate why my old games are so crappy. These were the pinnacle of Flash programming at one point and I need some props!

The background art was by Michael Bregman. I did the rest!

Had been working on a Smurf-themed second level but then we got a takedown notice for some Smurf parodies on the site and I think that killed my motivation... Not to mention just getting occupied with lots of other projects and Flash getting a lot better when version 5 came out.

The story looks fine, but the gameplay is awful!

The story is funny but too random and all over the place. One moment it is about three religious leaders, but we never get to kill them, just some guards, then it's about aliens (penilians, nice Pico School referance) whom we don't get to fight either and then about smurfs?
Gameplay and controls are sluggish and too simplistic.
Perhaps it would be better if it were finished, looks incomplete.
