+ Various modes of play to explore, though nothing particularly innovative
+ Includes a collection of challenges to complete, and bonuses to unlock
+ The system for unlocking weapons makes for great combos that are fun to use
+ Time attack and survival modes help to buff up replay value
+ Fluid, intuitive combat system

- Unplayable without a controller; the controller setup, too, was an absolute nightmare (I spent over an hour on help forums to finally get the game to recognize my controller past the keybinding setup screen)
- Even for an indie game, the graphics were very, very poor for a game in 2014
- Story mode is incredibly short (~10-15 minutes), placing heavy emphasis on the few other gamemodes for (somewhat) forced replayability
- Plot was generic and uninspired; the game's narrative took a complete back-seat to the gameplay, and felt almost "painted on"

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.

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.

Rating: 9 / 10

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.

This is a hack n slash I received through a humble bundle i purchased a while ago. I would say that the story is extremely thin, the game can be beat in a few hours, and the levels/environments don't really change much. Its fun to play if you just want to klil some time, but its not a game that I am looking forward to hopping on as soon as i get home from work. If you can get it for like 3 dollars I'd say its worth.

This game makes no attempts to hide what it is: a series of rooms where you beat up monsters. The combo system is a bit shallow until you start unlocking weapons to round out your repertoire. Even with a weapon to give you a launcher or a dashing attack, your base combo never changes much.

Most of your enjoyment will come from what you can get out of score chasing the highest combo by abusing the mechanics as far as you can, such as chaining combos together by stringing them together with dash cancels and AoE sweeps. But for a game that promises just a great action-fighting experience, I believe it delivers.

This game looks like it would be a lot of fun, if it were playable. The dialogue is playful and amusing, the characters are well-drawn, and there seem to be a variety of abilities and enemies. But the keyboard controls are so terrible that the movement keys only register a tiny step per press, and will not recognize continued movement when holding down the key. Luckily, the game supports a controller...but only for movement. The controller buttons cannot be assigned to attacks, so the only way to do anything is to move the character by the controller, while hitting the attack buttons on the keyboard. Basic attacks work this way, however annoying it is, but I can't get special attacks to trigger except by blind luck.

There may be controllers that work with this game, but the inconsistent support is in itself a sign of poor design.

It shouldn't be a surprise that DMC-style action games have become staples in the doujin PC market. Even without expensive set pieces these games can easily get by as long as the combat system is polished. Croixleur is a good example of this as the game features 3 enemies, 3 unique bosses, and a single arena. But the gameplay is polished and that's enough to carry the experience and warrant a purchase.

Much like classic arcade titles, the focus of Croixleur is developing player skill and going for high scores. With the 8-15 minute story/arcade mode the focus of the scoring is based mostly on speed, rewarding events and the epilogue fight purely based on how efficiently the player can clear out the waves of enemies. With the Steam achievements based around completing skill-based challenges, there is quite a few hours of speedrunning fun to be had in that 10 minute story mode.

Alternative review:

If you're a fan of:
Attack - cancel into dash - cancel dash into attack - cancel into special move - cancel into dash - repeat... then you'll find a lot to love here.

Highly recommended to lovers of action games, anime girls with swords, and fans of getting carpal tunnel.

Fun little hack and slash game, but I mainly recommend if 50% off or more. Nothing super special about it, but it's worth playing through its modes a few times.

simple HnS game with easy to learn controls and gameplay, but using arrow keys for movement doesn't work for me (even though its set as that initially), but thankfully you can change controls. Its also annoying how they it thinks we are playing on a controller and refers to keys with ABCD, but overall great game, but be warned that its designed to have a short story mode (10~15 mins), but a lot of unlockables and challenges so you have to re-do it.

After some fiddling with the keyboard configuration and playing a bit of the game, I conclude that smooth gameplay can't be conducted with a keyboard.
Don't buy the game if you don't have some kind of controller.

With that said, I can't really..... reccomend it. I WILL say, however, that you should check out Fairy Bloom Freesia and play the ♥♥♥♥ out of that game.

Hey kids! Would you like a super short, super easy arena-based beat-em-up game with absolutely no depth that's over in about 5 minutes and has vapid characters that don't matter? Well, I didn't.

Итак! Croixleur Sigma! Это слэшер. И этим можно закончить, правда. Но разберем по частям. Это слешер в стилистике аниме. То есть можно сказать, что это тот же самый devil my cry только moe~. Сюжет я не особо понял, но он там есть и не большой. Нам дана башня, на каждом этаже башни - монстры, задача: убить монстров на каждом этаже. В игре на выбор даются два персонажа: Lucrezia Visconti и Francesca Storaro (и да, в игре присутствует локальный co-op). Они ничем не отличаются, только милым внешним видом. Но! На выбор тебе дается огромный арсенал оружия: катаны, мечи, широкие мечи, проклятые мечи, булавы, копья т.п и т.д. И перед игрой, можно поставить четыре оружия на выбор, и менять их во время игры делая шикарнейшие коомбинации ударов, которые сопровождаются красивыми эффектами. В игре есть много режимов, например такие как История, Выживание, Испытания. Мобов в игре достаточно: какие то гоблины, рыцари, троли. Так же есть боссы в игре, например огромный дракон. Игра достаточно трудная на поздних стадиях, в начале все довольно просто. Оценка 7/10 (мало разнообразия, игра тянет максимум на пару вечеров, но будь игра эта на psp или psvita, а графа потянет вполне, я бы в нее только бы и играл). Вот такая вот, Croixleur Sigma.

Примитивная инди-игра, состоящая исключительно из сражений на одинаковых круглых аренах, отличающихся лишь цветом. Это мясной слешер, но жанр приведен лишь для примера - экшен тут скучный, не техничный, а спец-приемов довольно мало. И уж конечно у игры нет ничего общего с Devil May Cry, с которым ее почему-то сравнивают некоторые обзорщики. Игра могла бы порадовать анимешников, но анимешных артов тут раз-два, как и персонажей-лоли.

Дополнительно можно выбивать ачивки, проходить игру на скорость, в кооперативе или выполнять специальные миссии. Только непонятно зачем. В целом же проект напомнил бонусный режим из Devil May Cry 3, где мы сражались на этажах башни, однако всей этой игре до какого-то того режима - как пешком до луны.

Croixleur is a cute and polished game that delivers arcade-like fast paced arena action game.

Developed by Japanese Doujin studio Souvenir Circ., Croixleur offers a Devil May Cry's Blood Palace mode in which players must fight against waves of increasingly difficult monsters. The game which was originally released in the west last year by Nyu Media and has been since refitted for Steam with a new name Croixleur Sigma and a number of enhancements like 2 player co-op, multiplayer, online leaderboard, Steam achievements, Steam Trading Cards, improve visuals.

The Japanese audio is a delight addition that compliments the beautiful artwork and soundtrack.

The graphics is simple, a flashy and full of colorful effects. The artwork is cute to look at.

Don't expect much story because the real focus of the game is combat. The controls as expected in an action game is responsive.

Croixleur Sigma is an arcade hack n slash featuring two adorable main characters named Lucrezia and Francesca.

I would strongly recommend a controller for this game. And locking the game to 60 fps in the configuration tool to avoid breaking the game completely.(Very high fps speeds the game up, making it impossible to play.)

Although the game is very short it has a ton of replay value with all the different game modes, which are: Story Mode, Arcade Mode, Score Attack, Survival, 30 different challenges and an extra Bonus Mode that unlocks after you complete the Story Mode under a certain time with each character.

The main focus of this game is to kill every enemy in each of the levels until you advance to the next level, while doing it as fast and efficiently as possible to get the best time possible. Every level also increases the difficulty slightly with tougher monsters, and every 5 levels they throw a boss creature into the mix as well.

Different modes such as Score Attack works a little differently, you get 3 minutes to achieve the highest score possible.
Survival is exactly what you would expect, survive for as long as possible and kill as many enemies as you can.
Arcade Mode gives you the option to play through the Story Mode levels without any story scenes for nonstop killing.
And finally Bonus Mode, a continuation of the story with more levels and tougher enemies.

While playing through Story Mode you will unlock more weapons, each with different stats and special attacks. Think of each weapon as a different move, you can hold up to 4 weapons at a time to build any combo you would like. Oh and the more you use a weapon the higher level it becomes!

The graphics may not be the most impressive but I think it fits the game very well. The gameplay however is amazing, it made me want to get better and improve after every time I fell in battle and lost some unnecessary time. While the soundtrack did not blow me away I think it accompanies the gameplay really well.
I had a lot of fun trying to complete all the achievements, it added many extra hours to the game as well as giving me some goals to achieve while playing.

If you are in it only for the story (which is not much) then this game is probably not for you. However, if you are looking to complete most of the achievements in the game and wondering how long it would take, expect around 12 hours. That is how long it took me to finish everything.

It's a pretty solid game, so if it looks interesting to you I would definitely recommend picking it up!
