Recenze

“There's life in the movements of the characters on the screen and real appeal in the combat even though it's from the dungeon-grinder school that I'm normally very fatigued by.”
Massively by Joystiq

“Akaneiro: Demon Hunters is a free to play action online RPG from Shanghai-based Spicy Horse. The game takes on the mix of Little Red Riding Hood – a European fairy tale- and The Lost Wolves of Japan -a book about Japanese history, literature and folklore.”
8.9/10 – MMOHUT

“Akaneiro provides players with a free to play ARPG of depth, blended seamlessly with the speed and intensity of a pure action title.”
3/5 – Bloody Disgusting

This game is unfinished and likely unsupported. Sure you can play to an end, but missions appear to be missing. We have a mission 22 and 24 but not a 23. I dont think they are hidden as the achievement for mission 23 unlocks when mission 24 unlocks.

One other item...how many times did I die in what appeared to be one hit, but as I respawned and attack only to discover that 1 mob was about 10....

I really like this game and think it has soo much potential. However, it unexpectantly quits on me and can get buggy. However, the graphics are really unique and interesting and the skills are pretty good. If it could get the kinks worked out, I would like this game a lot.

I like this game a lot, the problem is that it keeps crashing and sometimes it takes my computer with it.

The controls are easy enough, hold the left mouse button and move the cursor to walk and click left to interact. There's a few keys with menu's or special attack mapped to them. Also, the game basically plays itself if you don't turn off the auto-attack option in the menu.

The art is interesting, the music is nice, there's an interesting story and world to explore. I want to recommend it, but with three crashes and one that shut down my computer, i can't.

Played this when it was a kickstarter project, thought it would be pretty awesome when they finished it. Now it's on steam and for free no reason not to play it. Although I'm not sure but it seems to have a memory leak problem it just progressively drops fps as you play until you restart it. Starts up pretty well instantly though then is playable for another 30-40 minutes before you restart it again. Could just be me all and all a fun game and now that's its free to play and on steam there is again no reason not to pick it up and have a go.

Do you have friends that play stupid games on Facebook? Do you make fun of them? Play this game and they will make fun of you! Click on the screen and relax, while your character fights with some mobs on his/her own!

I bought this game a few years ago, when it was still in beta. Now it's pay-to-win and it still looks and feels like beta of a crappy game.

This game doesn't look good, doesn't feel good, and can lag the hell out. But it's fun. I don't even know why.

There's never any danger of dying (at least at low levels lol), and there's little actual skill involved in controlling your character. It plays more like a casual Diablo 3 than anything else. In the end, it's just a very very unfinished game. But play it -- it's free. You might find, like me, that it's actually very appealing.

I thought by the reviews that wouldn't be much worth it, but it ended being fun than I expeted it to be. Sounds quite OK for an Action Role Playing Game. You have 3 classes, one has more damage, one has more armor and one has more spells and critical hits, however when you level up you can choose which class stat you want to boost, aswell as you can learn other classes' skills and upgrade them aswell. You can hire a pet and a soldier for a short period of time to help you in the dungeons.

PROS (the good stuff):
+ Similar to Diablo and Torchlight.
+ Bears an unique style, using Japanese mytology and folklore.
+ Each dungeon has 5 difficulties (more difficulty means more exp and money).
+ You Have 3 classes, however you can learn other classes' skills and, when you level up, you can also choose boost stats that identify other classes;
+ Each skill is upgradeable up to 5 stars (passive skills from the class are upgradeable aswell).
+ You can sell your items directly from your inventory, even if you are in a dungeon.

CONS (what they should improve or fix):
- No Zoom option. (which may turn difficult to move with the cursor on some corners)
- It randomly goes to windowed mode when you're choosing your character.
- The Settings option itself, it's very sparce:
  • You cannot change the resolution, there is no option for it.
  • There is no option for key mapping nor key binding, so you cannot change your keys.
- Some random crashes that might happen when you're accessing the inventory at the town.
- It lacks multiplayer or co-op.

I like Akaneiro: Demon Hunters from what I played. It feels very unfinished and rough so I can see how people who payed for it could really end up regretting there purchase, especially considering development looks like it has really had some trouble. I remember seeing Akaneiro: Demon Hunters when it was still being kickstarted and advertised and I remember being interested. It was not until yesterday (12/15/15) that I saw not only was the game on Steam, but that it was free!

The gameplay is pretty average ARPG stuff, but the environment and music are bot pretty coo Japanese painting looking. From what I have seen there are a good deal of missions and levels so the game is of decent length. I have yet to finish it but I have played enough to let everyone know I think its pretty neat.

I blame Okami, I love that game and when I saw this game...well the awful reviews hadn't fully come in yet. So I thought "Yeah a Diabloesque beat'em up that looks like Okami, but with Little Red Riding Hood as a demonhunter instead of the goddess Amaterasu as a wolf." So I forked out the money...

...And that's just the start of where this game falls apart. This game should have been free from the start, as the game relies heavily on IAP. Enemies escalate quickly while upgrading for equipment is a joke. As well, it costs currency to add new skills to your character. Nor is the character selection balanced, enemies will tear through your defensive character because of their heavy damage and the ranged character is simply too weak at everything to do anything other than get mobbed to death. So only the slayers worshipping Little Red Riding Hood...oops I mean the Maiden in Red are effective in this game, so instead of hitting a wall at 3rd or 4th stage of the game - they might go as far as 6th.

The game is also ridden with bugs and crashes a lot. And the makers of this game have essentially given up on this game and say they have gutted their Akaneiro crew to two programmers spending time to deal with the huge problems in this game. Yikes...considering how much difficulty they have with their new games elsewhere, you can expect a patch for this game a decade from now.

This game has beautiful artwork and a nice if rather empty pseudo-Japanese styling (I've seen larger and more active town populations in old SNES RPGs and the first Diablo than this game). That's the only positive to this game. Otherwise this game is mired down in a ton of problems and isn't going to improve. I have only one purchase regret for Steam and it's this game.

The game requires you to be online in order to play, there's even a chat option too but multiplayer is nowhere to be seen (even in the store page states it's a single player game, which makes no sense to be always online).

The game is free to play but be aware the more you play the more unstable it gets, the amounts of lag make it unplayable (4990 of ping? seriously?) .

The art is pretty, the music is good, the gameplay is nothing special, with lots of bugs the worse of them is when your character can't level up for no apparent reason, so you keep playing expecting to level up at some point, enemy meshes overlap each other A LOT, it could've been better if it wasn't due to the online always feature, at leas it could've been bearable.

I don't know why this game needs to be always online, but this is the biggest problem with the game. I got an absurd lag playing this from Brazil, don't know if it's different for others countries. The game has a good design but lacks a good story, I think the only good thing it there's a Linux version of the game and the genre (ARPG) is lacking in the Linux world at the moment. This game can get a lot better if the devs can polish these things.

The gameplay is very repetitive and average hack 'n' slay stuff.

It can be fun for a while.
I like the japanese environment, the artwork, the kinds of armor, weapons and enemies.

But I can see why there are so many negative reviews: Because people bought it and regret it. I read in a lot of reviews that they expected something different...
I played it for free and to be honest I would've also regret it if I bought it. It's just not worth any money. When it's about a hack 'n' slay game, then there are many better to find.

As it is free to play now, you can give it a try and enjoy it for some time. But you probably won't invest much time in it, as it could be better.

Akaneiro definitely has potential, but it seems it won't be used. That's why in the end I write a negative review as well.

A Diablo-style hack n slash that doesn't do anything new. The graphics are poor, selling loot is a pain, and the combat is clumsy. If you just stand still the game does the combat for you.

Here are the problems with the game as I see them:

1. Constant screen and sound stuttering.
2. Quality of Life improvements aren't even an afterthought - they don't exist. For example, you can't ctrl + click or Shift + Click to get items to and from your stash. The vendor where you buy items, you can't sell there. - How counter intuitive is that? It does have this nice feature where you can just sell anything from your inventory - ok, neat, but again counter intuitive. You can't use your mouse scroll wheel to scroll the item boxes at any vendors.
3. This game lacks polish all over. Tooltips aren't helpful. The buff bar only gives you icons, if you hover your mouse over them, nothing indicates what that icon is doing. The "auto attack" feature in the game interferes with your ability to use skills. The UI is also clunky and the games does little to explain it to you, so this is why it feels clunky.
4. Where is the lore, story, plot? Anything that I could use that might give me a reason to be engaged is missing almost entirely.

The only nice thing I will say about the game is that I like the art direction. I like the eastern theme. I do not recommend anyone throwing money at this game until they fix some of these issues.

Tl;dr: It's a decent hack 'n' slash game with good artwork, can get repetitive, made primarily for mobile devices, DON'T BUY IT ON STEAM SINCE IT'S FREE ON DESURA. Read below for more info.

I bought this game months ago (during a sale, phew!), and at first I remember I loved it. I loved the artwork, I loved the hack 'n' slash. I simply found this through browsing Steam, not their Kickstarter. I used to love just hacking and slashing, one downside was that to get better loots you have to do the same missions a few times with higher difficulty, just like other games, but this one doesn't make the higher difficulty more fun, it's rather boring to do it again and again in fact. (Which it still is now.)

As of writing this on November 11, 2014, yes, this game is free on Desura. Yes, there is micro-transaction, which is because this game was supposed to come out on iOS and Android as well. However, reading the comment section of their Kickstarter, there isn't any news on the phone versions yet. The weird controls are a result of this game being primarily a mobile game. You only use mouse left and right clicks which can be extremely irritating if you normally use WASD to move around.

The developing team is literally 1 person alone, and he had 2.7k people back the game with a total amount of 200k USD. Despite that, I didn't have high hopes after downloading it again today. In August, 2014, in which he replied comments on Akaneiro's Kickstarter, the developer explained the slow progress was due to him being alone in the whole development, HOWEVER, after the Kickstarter success in February 2013, he had since 1 failed and 1 successful Kickstarter campaign, both on different projects, with the latest successful one in August, 2013. So is he slacking off on developing this game?

I was fine with just going along and playing the game like I used to. However, I couldn't even load the one mission I wanted to play... I'm sorry but for now, I cannot recommend this game, especially since it's made for mobile WITHOUT controls for PC players, and its horrible development.

Everyone has that "one game". The game they regret buying or preordering. Some people have more than one. This game is "that one game" for many people. Spicy Horse has essentially abandoned the development of this game (they posted that the development team has been reduced to 2 members), leaving out many features such as Co-op (They have been claiming that multiplayer will be implemented since 2011), yet still left in the general chat box that connects to no one. They also mentioned that even though this game was a complete financial flop, they will leave the servers open to people (As even though there is no multiplayer, you must still log into their servers to actually play), which they claim they are "Taking one for the team" and losing money keeping the servers open for the handful of folks who still play. Honestly, I figure that if they closed the servers there would have been a much larger backlash from people still waiting for this game to enter its full state.

They even had the audacity to leave in their Cash Shop along with the cosmetic items that cost real money. I am aware that some people do still play this game, but the original concept of this game has been completly gutted and trimmed into a shell of what it was promised to do upon initial release

Akaneiro is a potentially cool Diablo clone ruined by a greedy free-to-play pay scheme. Yes, it's f2p- except on Steam, where you spend $10 on in-game currency to play it. $10 should buy you the whole game, and even then it's so simplistic it would be hard to recommend. And it still isn't feature complete, despite a $200,000 Kickstarter and charging microtransactions on an unfinished game. Totally unbalanced, too.

I'm not even sure what the state of the game is, either. It's still listed as "early access" but I don't even know that it's being worked on any more. From what I can tell Spicy Horse has moved on to other projects on Kickstarter, leaving Akaneiro a half-finished mess. Having loved their work on Alice: Madness Returns, I'm disappointed by this game and their questionable business ethics.

I loved this game to bits in the beginning! Was looking forward to the promised co-op option. Sadly didn't happen. Was cool to have the option to summon a random character to help you out a bit, at least. I was shocked this game brought little to no profit to the developers. After the big changes that were made to the game, like changing the control keys (they used to be very well thought out, now they're confusing to use), I don't mind if a game is difficult, but the character is suddenly extremely weak physicaly and I have to heal every few seconds and constantly runaway from even one monster to avoid getting killed.. aaand ofc microtransactions.. I don't mind it as long as it's actually worth it, but here, it's not. Looked through everything and even though I was open to buy some of the karma crystals and/or shards, there's actually nothing really worth spending money on. Shame.. It used to be such an awesome and fun game in the beginning. *sad face* :(
