High-speed hack-and-slash action!

Tonight, in the Queen's realm of Ilance, two prodigies representing the Knight and Aristocrat factions will do battle in ‘the Adjuvant Trial’. This ritual, which has been held since the founding of the nation, decides which faction will hold military and political authority, and protect the Queen, the living symbol of the realm. The fate of the nation is at stake as these two girls set aside their childhood friendship and undergo a trial in which there can be only one victor.

PLOT: Lucrezia wants to take a bath with Francesca. Franny is all "NO WAY IN HELL" and runs off to a massive tower(paging Dr. Freud). Luc has to fight through a dozen or so floors of goblins, flying eyeballs, knights in shining armor, and huge beasts to drag Fran's sorry butt into the tub.

Okay I forgot the actual plot to this game. I assure you all that there is one and it's kinda-sorta-quasi-serious. But who cares about that nonsense? This is a supplemental-arcade-arena-slashemup. If you have less than 15 minutes to spare you can complete a play-through of this game. Yes, this game is a short one, but it's pretty sweet. There are no crazy mission designs, no escorting, no stealth, nothing but just slashing through hundreds of generic foes and grabbing coins.

Before the game starts you decide on your arsenal. There are 10 weapons per gal and they all have their own special moves. Basically you want a combination of weapons that suit your play-style. Special moves can be chained for more damage, and some are only effective in mid-air, or as anti-air (gotta account for the flying eyes). Don't fuss over your style rating though, this game rewards speed and efficiency above everything else. Yellow enemies drop in a single hit, blues go down in three, and reds take 4+. Once you memorize the basics all you have to worry about is dashing around and mopping everything up.

There are a variety of modes, but variety is a rather strong word when it comes to Croixleur.
Story - Kill Everything As Fast As Possible. Lots of plot and talks about baths.
Time Attack - KEAFAP in 3 minutes
Survival - KEAFA you want. Expect to see huge crowds of enemies.
Challenge - Definitely KEAFAP.
Bonus - This is the epilogue. Luc & Fran team up to bring the hurt on slightly tougher enemies. Don't forget to KEAFAP.

For the most part Croixleur Sigma is a fast-paced and satisfying slasher. The controls are fluid enough and it's fun zipping around shredding everything. However there are some issues that I have with the game.

Certain moves have weak properties. One of the specials Luc can perform is a downward stab that causes a large shockwave. However, that shockwave is mostly for looks and only hits enemies that are practically under Luc. This tends to be the case with a number of special moves. They look like they should hit because you see the flashy trails and pretty lights connect with enemies, but instead they miss completely. It's...well not really that big an issue. I mean, it's not like it's inconsistent or anything. It would be much worse if the moves hit only some of the time.

Anti-cooperative play. When Luc & Fran team up, it spells trouble...for Luc & Fran. You have to give your BFF plenty of breathing space or she will hit you with her regular and special attacks (and vice-versa). This doesn't do any damage, but it will stun you, and can throw your rhythm off as well as waste time. Maybe the developer thought it would be too easy if this wasn't the case. Luc & Fran could just throw those special moves out constantly and be a whirling dervish of destruction. I disagree. Croixleur Sigma plays up the bestest buddies element, but then implements a design-decision that causes real-world friends to fight? That is a definite head-scratcher. Also during the bonus mode the game only ends when player 1 dies. Player 2 can die as many times as they like. This is something I abused for the cheap final battle.

Croixleur Sigma is like I said, a supplemental game. You play this title alongside your "main" game, or when you absolutely must play something, and don't have much time. It's not a deep game though, not even in terms of game-design depth. If Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae complements games like Devil May Cry and Metal Gear Rising, this game is best played alongside Dynasty Warriors. When you want a dumb 5-minute slashathon, but don't want to run around huge maps and listen to a bunch of talk about Three Kingdoms and whatever whatever, then play this game.

This would make for a fun battle system in a larger game like an RPG, or an extra mode in a larger action game. But on its own, Croixleur Sigma just falls short and feels like an incomplete game.

I can't really say I would recommend this at the asking price of $7.99, but for a couple of bucks on sale, or maybe grabbed in a bundle with other games, it feels more worth it.

Croixleur is basically a hack and slash game with very simple mechanics. There are no complex combos, or even intermediate ones. We're talking simplest of the simple here when chaining together attacks. It's basically button mash, dash away to dodge attacks, and once in a while throw in an "invincible" special. The arenas are all the same. Just a circle you run around in, with different colors. Someone said this feels like Bloody Palace mode in the Devil May Cry games. But that is just the thing, the Bloody Palace Mode was just a mode in a larger game, and a much deeper game at that in terms of combat.

As it stands on its own, the story mode is just too short, with literally only 3 types of bosses, with 2 of the boss types becoming standard enemies after you beat them, which can be dropped with the greatest of ease with a simple hit hit dash, rinse and repeat set of moves. As for the standard enemies there are 3 types, with a few levels of difficulty for each. It's just...wow. Lazy. Besides story mode, you can tackle a time attack, survival and challenge mode. And that's pretty much it.

There are 2 characters to play as, with 20 weapons total to use once you unlock them all. There is not much difference in any of the weapons other than attack power, their special, and of course the weapon skins. For basic attacks they are pretty much all similar.

I have less than an hour in the game. Yes, less than an hour. But in that hour I managed to play through story mode twice. Once making it as far as the timer allowed, and the 2nd time actually completing story mode, and then to try out the other modes afterwards. I am already bored with the title.

Buy this I guess if you like repetitive score attack type action games with extremely little style and substance.

Croixleur is a tiny, cute hack'n slash game with an easy to learn and hard to master gameplay mechanic. Badly the game is very short, you will have seen everything the game has to offer you in about 15 minutes. Never the less, this doesn't matter so much. It is a high-score game. It has a huge replay ability and because of its easy to learn but still challenging gameplay.

This is what happens when you combine Devil May Cry with lolis.

Okay, so first of all, when I started up the game, the music literally BLASTED in my face. I'm not talking about being "a bit loud" here, the BGM sound is, if anything, made for Arduino speakers with the volume set to -1%. I had to instantly mute the game. Thing is, the music volume doesn't actually change except if you put it to 0, where it simply disappears. I couldn't change this, not even with reinstalling the game. (Headset: Razer Tiamat 7.1, Soundcard: Asus Xonar DX)

Next problem was, this game doesn't run with a PS4 controller. Like, not at all. I could press any buttons and nothing happened, neither in the configuration tool nor in the actual game. I thought, maybe it just didn't accept the PS4 controller as a viable controller, BUT basically all games that have XBox 360 controller support also work with the PS4 controller (E.g. Blade Kitten worked perfectly). Also, the pre-setup left stick DID actually work, but I couldn't assign any other keys in any way. In the end I had to use a long forgotten program, Joy2Key, to map the keyboard settings to the controller (which was also quite a bit of pain, because the key setup of Croixleur kept setting up keys while the window wasn't even active) and ended up with a weird mix of pressing escape on my keyboard and trying to figure out the controller buttons that were mapped to the keys the game told me to press.

So for the gameplay then - the gameplay itself was, well, expected. I guess it would be a fun game to play every now and then, if the controls weren't so horrible to set up.
Although I gotta say, I've lately played a lot of games that made the controls feel more fluent than this.

In the end, I can't really recommend it because the decent gameplay got overshadowed by the time it took to even get it running.

If you have a controller you know this game will run fine with, and you want gameplay pretty much exactly as presented in the screenshots, go ahead. If you're trying to find the next best indie game or you only have a PS4 controller, probably not.
