“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

Bought this game before it was ftp, cheap mind you, but still bought it. I'd rather lick a homeless man's a$$ hole than ever play this "game" again.

Je me sens désolée de dire que je ne recommande pas spécialement ce jeu.
L'univers est une bonne idée, la pratique également.
Cependant :
- Il n'est pas fini et ne le sera jamais.
- Il demande une connexion internet
- De ce fait il est lent comme jamais avec des lag...
Heureusement il est gratuit me direz vous. Mais d'ici que le projet reprenne, je ne le recommande pas :(

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.

Que dire de Akaneiro ?! ... Un jeu qui même si graphiquement est un peu vieux, à une espece d'atmosphere qui passe bien. Les Graphismes me rapellent la Game Cube, en un peu mieux.

L'idée du jeu n'est en autre qu'un Diablo Enfantin, rien de moins ... et surtout rien de plus.

Vous incarnez un(e) Ninja/Samuraï qui acoste sur une cote quand tout à coup vous vous appercevez que l'île est en fait en feu ! Et une Jolie dame pleine de sang vous demande d'aller sauver les Villageois !!! "Bien sur madame !" au fur et à mesure que vous delivrez l'ile, vous ouvrez le passage durant 29 niveaux (à peu pres, car il manque les niveaux 19,24 et 27 !) au milieu de gnomes, trolls, loups, trucs, sorciers, ...
Bref un scenar tout ce qu'il y a de plus bateau mais bon, une fois de plus ou de moins...

Vous collecterez, des items afin de vous aider à avancer dans votre aventure en upgradant votre stuff ! Rien du tout, ça fonctionne pas ! faut se les coltiner dans le coffre pour rien ou les vendre ... pour rien aussi (valeur zero).

Vous collecterez des Gemmes rouges qui vous permettrons d'engager des petit esprits minions (qui agirons passivement sur vos stats), d'ameliorer vos skills (plutots jolis à l'ecran).
Certaines fois les gemmes seront Violettes ! "Chouette ! elle vont surement nous filer la valeur de 2 ou 5 gemmes rouges! " ET BEN NON ! Que dalle ! une gemme reste une gemme on s'en tape de sa couleur !

Afin de pouvoir collecter ces petites gemmes, vous avez la possibilités de changer 4 fois la difficulté des missions ! (ceci n'augmentant que le nombre d'ennemis et sensiblement leurs capacités)

Biensur afin de pexer, faut il encore que la barre d'exp ne bug pas !! Car souvent cette derniere déborde ! Owi ! et le niveau lui ne vous pète pas au visage ... Frustration ! il suffira de redemarrer le jeu et ainsi voir ce qui n'a pas été enregistré avant le bug pour tout recommencer ... (J'ai mis 6h à le finir, sans ce bug j'aurai mis 3h maxi).

Quelques Shops presents vous proposent leurs services et produits pour des prix défiant un certain niveau de farmeurs ... Mais biensur ... Vous pouvez utiliser les microtransactions pour debloquer tout ça !!! Owi ! (montants jusque 93€ pour des petites gemmes !!! )
Il y a aussi une espece de connection avec le jeu ... un PING faisant des pics à 500 est present et à mon avis le serveur n'est pas tout pret car les lags sont bien ressentis sur les mouvements et le son (bien que j'ai la fibre). Je ne comprend pas cette connection, car il n'y a pas de multi possible ... (peut etre un lien pour les paiements).

Bref je conseille ce jeu uniquement car il est gratuit et qu'il donne 41 Succés de maniere plutot gratos ! Par contre je dis un gros ZERO pour tout le reste ... un gachis à mon avis, il à dù devenir gratuit par la force des choses...

Je ne comprend pas les mauvaise "notes" pour moi je trouve que c'est un très bon RPG hack'n slash d'action, et de plus j'adore vraiment la "pâte graphique" du même style mais en moins jolie que Okami sur Wii !

Une bonne difficulté bien dosée en fonction des niveaux,pas mal d'objets/équipements,du katana à la masse ! de quoi trouver sont style de combat préférer, Quelque skills sympas. Pas mal de niveaux à refaire avec une difficulté plus haute, ce qui permet de lui donner une bonne durée de vie pour un petit jeu gatuit . Bref un bon jeu pour les personnes pas trop exigeantes et qui aiment les Hack'n Slash !.

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* :(

Wow, usually I'm smarter than this. This is paying for a F2P game. With microtransactions. If you buy this, you're just an idiot like me. Don't be an idiot.

As a free to play game, it's pretty bad. F2P usually means MMO. In this case it means barely functional. The UI is terrible and hard to figure out. The camera isn't controlled, so melee tank classes are highly favorable. Levelling up is a mystery (does it do anything?). Coming from having played many ARPGs, this one is definitely different. And not really in a good way.

As 1 of the insignificant kickstarter of this project, i was hoping they would implement Co-op to accommodate online play with my friends... Now that news vendors are reporting the Company is facing major financial problems... I'm not sure anymore.
