Please let me know of any bugs.
Key-binding changes are coming soon. Been kind of a crazy week.

I have noticed the game freezing on the last level sometimes, working to resolve. Sorry for the inconvenience. :(

For being a decade old this is mad good, everything feels satisfying af. Usually I would be annoyed with ammo limits in a run n gun platformer, but here it really makes you think strategically what to do next with your sword, would love to see this more fleshed out!

Simple but good

・Unique Theme. (Platformer Shooter That Uses Yakuza. )
Note: Yakuza means the Japanese Crime Organization.
・Graphics are Good.

・This game is Short. Only 11 Stages and 1 Boss.

Fun and addictive game

A fun and addictive game you have here Ok cool little game you have here has a whole old style and a fun arcade feel to it, the controls run smooth and are easy to handle so fun game here, Well thats the end for me on this one but it was fun while it lasted.

So here was a fun game I think adding a kill meter to know howmany men you have killed would help to know where you are at on the kill medal. wouldnt mind an option to switch up the music with a few choices aswell.


This game is amazeballs!
