Wow that took a while.

This is a game I started makin in September 2008. It didn't take all that time to make, it's actually bin finished on my hard drive for months, but it was a absolute fucking HELL to finish.

I was aiming for somethin between Devil May Cry and Bionic Commando ReArmed. I wanted to make a game that people would see as a "game" and not a "flash game" or "web game". Also I wanted to put all the people making tower defenses, catapult clones n top-down shooters to shame, and show everyone that it's 2010 and we don't have to make over-pixelated chiptune games any more with crappy rotating limbs n slideshow cutscenes.

But I don't wanna sound like a jerk, I just wanted to make the best thing I possibly could.

I'd love for cutscenes to be available everywhere, but they literally won't fit in the .fla. I can't import anything n I can barely export it it's so damn big, so I hope noone's too annoyed about that.

Oh well. Have fun with it.

this was one of the best flash games I played as a kid. It's basically a DMC flash game. I remember playing this as a kid because I'm a dumb kid that don't know how to play and got filtered at level 3 especially since there's no indicator that you had to drag the upgrades to the slots.

the grand best game what i played in life,
I remembered him a lot a decade ago when i see my brother playing this game in other well-known page.
you are lucky that you are one of my favorites,especially johnny.

hey , the game crashes or dont load the ending after defeat the final boss.
IDK how play with her for the dev blog.

This is truly a masterpiece in game design. I enjoyed playing it through from start to finish. The animation is beautiful, the gameplay snappy and enjoyable, challenge difficult but fair. My only regret is being on a flash hiatus during its original release.

Thanks a lot for the kind words. I worked hard on the game, so it's really nice to know that it stuck with people!

What's song plaing in the crab guy boss fight?

An incredible game! My childhood time masterpiece
Thank you for this!
