Pretty graphics;
Good  controls;
Difficult as hell.

 For those who are into roguelike games and plataformers, this is the game for you, especially if you enjoy games that are not easy, because this thing is hard as hell! Having awesome controls and precise commands just make you have an awesome experience. I'm sad to know that there aren't many gamers into this kind of game and some that don't even know that it exists.

Some of the best speed run platforming you'll find, anywhere. Lots of old-school arcade nostalgia. You'll seriously be wanting to buy a fountain soda, put quarters up on the display and shout "GOT NEXT."

This Adult Swim gem is my favorite retro platformer!

The controls are super responsive.
Brilliant, fast paced gameplay
Loads of melee weapons, projectiles, bombs and suits to unlock.
The unlocks and achievements actually test your in game skill.
Even if you fail, you will never get frustrated or bored playing this game.

If you absolutely love modern or retro platformers, YOU NEED TO BUY IT!

SHODN is a fast paced, "slash your way through enemies" game with fast and responsive controls and enjoyable monster slaying. The game is about descending through a tower with many floors, bosses, pick ups, and especially enemies. Before starting the descent, you can pick the weapons you unlocked by completing certain entertaining and fun, sometimes grindy challenges in the tower. You will also gain stuff like extra lives, ammunition of shurikens and magic and such. If you want a more in depth look into the game you should probably watch TotalBuiscuit's WTF video on this but if you're not interested in that, trust me, the game is so good and entertaining that you won't regret buying it not really knowing anything before, especially if it's on sale.

But screw all that just said who cares really IT HAS NINJAS AND KATANAS AND MAGIC AND ♥♥♥♥ YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAH

Very fast paced, kill everything in your path and collection the droped items platformer. Highly addictive, like cocaine, but in video game form.

Bought this game at the same time as a couple other AAA games which just went on sale...haven't played the other games and currently have 14 hours on this one.


Might need rehab? 5/5

Review for: Super House of Ice Skating Ninjas

It can be a very fun platformer for a little bit, but for me it quickly sunk in that there was a major flaw here that kept me from enjoying any of the game while I played through it. I still beat the game on normal in about 2 hours (it is very short), but never felt like I was having a good time, just pure frustration. The problem that blocked me from enjoying this game are the loose controls. I mean VERY loose. You slide around constantly and careen into enemies, environmental hazards, and bosses which are eventually beatable without taking any dmg because they are based purely on memorization. Because of the extremely slippery controls it is very tough, but it is do-able. I was taking about 1-3 hits per boss. The bosses take a long while to get to so the only real way you can get any practice on them is to get a user-made map that lets you boss run.

I love platformers and the reason I was able to beat the game so quickly without too much trouble was because I have always played platformers since I was a kid so I have some skill built up. Even so, I just did not enjoy the experience because of the incredibly loose slippery controls. If you look around, there are platformers out there that have much tighter controls without sacrificing the difficulty. Personally I hope we see less and less of these platformer games like this one and also “They Bleed Pixels” that are only difficult for one single reason: loose slippery sliding controls.

I really don't know why this game isn't more popular or well-known. It's got pretty much everything you'd want from an indie action game: procedural generation, lots of unlocks, high difficulty, and a sense of humor. It's like Spelunky meets Ninja Gaiden, with customizable loadouts and weapon unlocks.

The controls are fluid, the combat feels awesome, the pogression is smooth, just everything about this game feels really good. If you like platformers or rouge lights, you should defintely buy this game. Just great.

Fantastic arcade action game. Jump around, slash at stuff, throw ninja stars. Do it really fast!!! Unlockable upgrades and alternate weapons make for tons of replayability. Highly recommended.

This is easily one of the best platformers available at the moment on Steam (or any other platform, really). The gameplay is simple, but adictive and sometimes very challenging, the story is basicaly non-existent (which is cool, btw), the music awesome (and goes well with the game) and the graphics simply great :) I love the whole style, look and feel of the game and would recommend this game for everyone.

PS: it's on sale. Grab it O:)

I've only played about an hour and can already tell that this game is super fun and super addictive. You not only fight the enemies in the tower; you must also fight against the clock. The game is very fast-paced. Cool weapons and upgrades to unlock, and with the randomly generating tower, your experience will be a little different evey time. Abo♥♥♥♥ely woth the asking price. GET THIS GAME!!!!
