After trying this game about... I want to say thirty times, the highest rank I could get to was 'Priest'. I'm finding a few flaws in the game overall that are kind of annoying.
- Sometimes, projectiles will come at me at exactly the same time from two, sometimes three different angles, and I will only have time to swipe away one or two.
- Things like the arrows will fly from the sides and go through my sword, despite making the sound of them connecting which should reflect them back. This goes the same for some ninjas as well; red ninjas less so, but green ninjas will sprint towards me and, while they're bleeding out, they manage to kill me a couple of frames later. A differing sound effect for slicing projectiles and ninjas would do away with a lot of that confusion.
- There is no indication of special move charge level. As far as I'm aware, you get a special power to use after a 10-hit combo, and an upgraded version at 20 hits. If there's anything above that, I don't know because I die before I get the chance to use it, or I swipe at the air and frustratingly lose my entire combo (and my stored special move). Differently colored particles would be a nice touch if there are more than two levels of special ability.
- A volume slider for the voice alone would be appreciated. After hearing "You've been condemned to death by ninja" for the tenth time, it gets a little annoying... but at the same time, I like having the sounds of my sword connecting with things to get more than a visual representation that I'm doing well, so having SFX muted can be counter-intuitive.
All in all, it's okay, but nothing I'd go out of my way to play... or pay for.
