Acerca deste jogo

Told as a “Wuxia” story, which literally means "martial hero", Mirage captures the essence of a broad genre of Chinese fiction concerning the adventures of martial artists.

Shrouded in secrecy, an organization of assassins wreak havoc on the local populace. Two assassins Soul and Shang, find a window of opportunity to strike while all their enemies can be found in one place. Their mission is simple: take down all their enemies or die in the attempt. They will face many challenges and discover lost secrets as they embark on a perilous journey against terrible odds.

Take control of Soul and Shang and wield two separate martial arts styles to defeat their foes.

Soul is an orphan born with the temperament of a master. His skills are self-taught and so lack refinement, but his potential is undeniable. He favors Dark Wound, a short bladed weapon given to him by his adoptive father, rumored to be one of the Night Masters..

Shang Zuo is a calm, unflappable fighter of average skill, but who possesses a centered view of all things powerful enough to influence physical objects. This “Sword Temper” skill allows him to destroy objects without moving a muscle and to knock arrows out of the sky with but a single thought. Together they will face the unknown and harness new skills as they face down a terrible conspiracy.

Developed by a group of chinese developers. This is one of those very much underrated game out there. Maybe coz it is developed by a relatively unknown company that not much people is playing it. But it is definitely one of the best hack n slash game. You can use two different characters with totally two different skill sets. Certain boss are best defeated by one of the characters and you are allowed to switch to the one during in game fighting. Definitely highly recommended. A pity developers bail out from creating part 2 due to lack of sales ... Great game.

Basically it's a side-scrolling Devil May Cry. It features 2 characters with 2 distinct combat styles (think of Dante and Vergil; in fact, Shang could be Vergil’s distant cousin from China — his Kee swords bear great resemblance to Summoned Swords), style-based combat system, and great visuals. Sadly, translation is atrocious, there are many typos and in some instances English text doesn't even remotely correspond to Chinese audio. Also, story is somewhat basic and clichéd. But the gameplay is great, combat is satisfying, so if you're a fan of hack and slash games (like me), Mirage is a must have. If you're not, well, at least give it a try.
P.S. Oh, and don't be fooled by “Local co-op” label on Steam — Mirage has only “Duel” mode available from the start. In order to unlock “Boss Rush” and “Tower” (Bloody Palace) modes you have to finish the story first. There's no co-op for story mode…

Nice graphic, nice action combos and effects. As a chinese, I think the voicecasts are not good, and the english translation is also not as good as I expected.
It's a good game anyway.

Wow. If you can get past the bad translation in the early parts of the game, you are in for one hell of a fun action game. The gameplay is mad crazy once you hit your stride in the higher difficulties.

Evade-counters that can kill enemies in one hit? Check.
Two playable characters that can be swapped in and out a la Marvel vs Capcom? Check.
One of them is a teleporting ninja and the other is a psychic swordsman, both with vastly different playstyles? Check.
The harder the game becomes, the more badass it is, and it punishes button-mashing hardcore? Who needs more convincing?

If you enjoy 2D action games at all, you need to buy this game. For $15 at most, you can't go wrong.

Rain Blood Chronicles: Mirage is best described as a 2D Devil May Cry with co-op capabilities (although its kind of wasted). It features a very solid combat system and some good ways for stylish play. The two characters play like Dante and Vergil with unique movesets and combo capabilities and can be switched between, ammounting to something akin to "styles". For a company that never did an action game before Rain Blood is a really solid game and better than any other recent offering in this genre

Unfortunately it has issues and is held back by some little annoyances like wonky hit-/hurtboxes and physics that can make you drop combos sometimes. Additionally being able to "merge" your sprite with the enemy (the players sprite occupying the same space as the enemy) creates problems in positioning, especially in the air where the enemy can just float through your barrage of attacks that start their hitbox far in front of the player.

The style meter has also this anoying tendency to be weighted towards parries, ultras and air combos and not towards actual variety of moves. It compounds the problem of upgrading your characters abilities and items since the rewards for defeating enemies are proportionally based on the style meter. Once you hit S rank (which is hard in of itself without hitting an ultra or parry) every hit you land is converted into gold currency which can be used to buy upgrade items. However sustaining or reaching S rank is hard without constant air combos, no matter how cool you think your ground combo-streak actually is or was.

After you beat the game's story on normal or hard your characters will potentially not even have all their skills unlocked. The unlocked Endless Tower mode helps to grind out the currency to upgrade but its kind of a waste that the player is potentially not allowed to use all their moves in Story Mode.

Another flaw are a few relatively boring bosses with very predictable move-sets with annoying stun-locks thatbreak the flow of a battle if you get caught. Especially the first boss you encounter Sword Addict has some annoying launcher move that goes on for at least 15 seconds. It doesnt do much damage, even on Hard or Very Hard, its just a very long and boring animation to watch.
The game also has a few problems in that regard on higher difficulties and higher floors of Endless Tower where you fight multiple boss-type enemies at the same time. The coding does not take into account that depending on RNG attack patterns even the basic enemies can infinitely stunlock you without recourse (until you unlock an expensive accessory which makes switched characters invulnerable for a very brief moment).

Other bad design decision are buff-enemies that produce an invulnerability-shield after a certain amount of damage has been done to them, probably to prevent the player from ending a fight too quickly. This makes for boring encounters where the player is forced into a cycle of waiting and attacking instead of being stylish and skillful.

I would wager that the only "proper" and interesting boss in the entire game is the endboss which has three separate phases and a very large variety of moves that requires you to pay close attention to positioning and timing.
Unfortunately I did not encounter this boss once in Endless Tower, even after Floor 30.

On another note Endless Tower does not let you save your progress even if you do not get killed on a floor, making reaching higher floors very time-consuming and exhausting as you always start at Floor 1. Or if there are Floor checkpoints I did not find them even after 30+ floors which took close to an hour.

In conclusion Rain Blood Chronicles is highly recomended for fans of the cuhrayze even if it is flawed in some regards. I hope the company will make a sequel (as the game does end on a cliffhanger) and continues to improve on the concept.

Solid beatemup game. The very beginning is misleading with the seemingly low quality because the game is actually very well put together. Decently challenging, but heavily rewards skillful play. Missions are longer than they should be for the DMC-style ability unlock system, and achievements don't seem to be working correctly, but I fully recommend this super cool chinese game of killing mans.

A very deep combat system brings Mirage's old-school roots to the forefront. Beatiful 2D art and animation seal the deal, despite the terrible translation of a story that wan't that good to begin with. If you like a game that rewards mastery over button mashing, and enjoy some eastern art prettyness, this comes very highly recomended. Just don't expect a deep tale or compelling character development.

The Best:

-- Distinct character mechanics
-- Excellent combat system
-- Gorgeous 2D art

The Worst:

-- Horrible story
-- Terrible translation
-- Only partial controller support.

Engrish translation? Check.
Pretty nice soundtrack? Check.
Fancy slashing combo system with diversity of two characters? Check.
If you want a game with fun combat and unnecessarily hard platforming, this might be a game for you.

For fans of Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden, this is an absolute treat. The combat is fast paced and wicked. Plenty of things to do after the main campaign, like harder difficulties, boss rush, and tower modes. This game's a blast!

This game tries to appeal to both the Devil May Cry and Muramasa: The Demon Blade fans. It fails to live up to either games; however, it has its own unique charm that'll keep you playing -- and, thankfully, not being a carbon-copy of a game is a good thing these days!

If you like action and hack n' slashes, give this a try when it's on sale.

A solid 2D hack'n slash game. It's basically Devil May Cry in 2D. BUT! The game is abandoned, leaving bugs unfixed. The developer went on to work on their next game. Talk about irresponsible.

It is still worth to get when on sale however.

Should be fixed;
- Random frame/sound lag spikes and slow down.
- Game Crashes 3 times during my first play through
- Occasionally both my character or enemies cannot be seen.
- Inconsistent sound effect. Some sound clips are not recorded well. I can hear sound crackling. Also, there is one enemy that is way louder than the rest when killed, not sure if it's "Pyre Alchemist" or "Enhanced Machinist".
- Voice setting only affects cutscenes, not during gameplay.

Rests annoying things;
- Bad Translation. Story is hard to follow due to translation, and some dialogues are insanely fast.
- Chinese sounds like it is dubbed in the 80s.
- Only partial cutscenes can be skipped. Annoying after 1st play through.
- The ending. I understand the game want to end on a cliffhanger, but it feels sudden. Also, after the final stage, there is a very long black screen before the credit start rolling. I thought the game crashed.
- Foreground and boss health bar (when 2 bosses appear at the same time) block the action on occasion.
- Achievement patch needs to be installed manually.

The game, while it may lack some polish, is fluid and the combat is fun.

The translation is not very good, but I can look over it because the setting is different from what you normally see.

If you are interested in hack and slash games, this does a superb job in scratching that itch. I would not reccomend playing the game without a controller, however.

2D DMC or even easier, Dungeon Fighter Online. It's pretty intuitive and the controls are really responsive. If you like DMC/DFO type games then I'd say give it a shot.

Interesting game, and something different from the usual indie offerings. The controls can be a little awkward at first, but they aren't too bad (and fortunatly you can customize them). I find a game controler works better than a keyboard for this game. Gameplay wise, this is more or less a side scrolling beat'em up brawler.

Mirage has an excellent combat system that should appeal to fans of Devil May Cry (from which it draws on heavily, right down to specific moves) and other intense, Japanese-style action games. I have a few small gripes with the combat, such as the lack of air-teching and not being able to attack enemies that have been knocked down, but overall the system is very fluid and free, allowing you to get very creative. The unique mechanics in the game, such as swapping out characters on the fly, are also great. As a combat-driven game, Mirage is very satisfying and well-worth the price. The difficulty options also make it appropriate for people who aren't veterans; you don't necessarily have to pull off advanced, technical stuff to get by.

Outside of the gameplay, Mirage leaves a lot to be desired. The translation sucks, so the story can be hard to follow, and it can be hard to figure out things like upgrade descriptions. The item system is also kind of convuluted regardless fo translation issues. There are certain key moves you need to unlock to really open up the combat, so it's worth replaying some missions as you progress (it's not really a grind, though). I didn't have any issues getting the game to recognize my 360 controller, and I was able to map inputs to my liking.

For $10 i'm so glad I picked this game up. This game is an awesome hack and slash especially if you're into chineese fiction.
Story is actually somewhat interesting. You play 2 different characters, both have pretty distinct movesets as well as unlockable skills.
The combat itself most people will probably think it's just "okay". But after learning the characters you can do some neat combos and tricks.

The enemies aren't too difficult really, (at least on normal difficulty) but they do throw quite a bit of mini bosses into the levels that keep it interesting.
The boss fights are definetly where most of the game shines, they all are pretty unique and have different layouts from what I can tell.

A couple typos in the dialogue, but it's easy to figure out what the characters are saying. The voices are actually in chineese which is very cool in my opinion.

Also the achievments seemed to be bugged unfortunately :(

Need to play it for yourself! Check it out!
