“It feels like it fell out of the late eighties, except the controls were tightened up during the voyage.”

“Oniken is an hard platform game with a retrò feeling inspired by the NES classics. It is a good game which all the retrogamers should try.”

“Tough as nails, Oniken brings gamers back to the good old days of platforming, the 8-Bit era. It's not just looks, but the gameplay and overall feel of the game will no doubt fill older gamers with nostalgia.”

À propos de ce jeu

When a global war nearly decimated humankind, an evil military organization called Oniken takes advantage of the situation to dominate and oppress the few remaining survivors. Even though any resistance to this organization seemed hopeless, a small rebel movement organizes strikes against Oniken. One day, a ninja mercenary named Zaku offers his services to the resistance for unknown reasons. His moves are lethal and now he is the resistance's only hope.

Oniken is an action platform game highly inspired by the 1980's, its games and its movies. You can see this not only in the graphics and sound design, but also in Oniken's story and difficulty.

Don't Worry, You Will Die A Lot Of Times.

Every copy of Oniken comes with digital versions of the game manual and the original soundtrack.

Features


  • Graphics, sounds and difficulty from the 8-bit era
  • Cinematic cutscenes
  • Over 18 boss fights
  • Six missions, three stages each

I was a little damning with faint praise when I mentioned Oniken in my review of Odallus: The Dark Call. I wasn't really sold on Oniken when I picked it up during a holiday Steam sale, being put off by the somewhat stiff controls and punishing difficulty, I didn't see it through past stage 3. However, coming off the high of Odallus prompted me to give Joymasher's debut another shot.

Oniken is tough. Sunsoft tough. Players who cut their teeth on games like the NES Batman and Journey to Silius will know what I'm getting at. Fast reflexes do play a part in your success, but memorizing the kinds of things a stage will throw at you and being able to consistently execute are paramount. It will throw you into that good kind of old school difficulty rage fit, that which motivates you to keep trying and not let that cheating-♥♥♥ game get the better of you. Unfortunately it also suffers from "try to get to the boss with enough health and wail on it in hopes that it dies before you do" syndrome, but a lot of the B-list games from the 8-bit era fell into this trap.

All that said, Oniken is a linear affair, and aside from the somewhat less than well hidden 1UP icons that resemble game mascots who never existed to collect in each stage, it won't exactly put your nipples in a vice grip to give it more than one shot after the end credits roll. Unless you're some kind of masochist and want to try hardcore mode. However, Oniken nails the goal of being a labor of love to late-80s manga-inspired cyberpunk platformers, with great-looking visuals in the cutscenes and some catchy tunes that make use of a limited sound channel set. Pick it up if you find it on sale, just be in for a teeth-grinding time.

There are TWO games on Steam that play and feel like classic NES / SNES games.
Oniken is one of them.

Many side-scrollers and platformers claim to play and / or feel like they're out of the 80's. Like they are from the (S)NES era.
They all lie!
Some of them really do look like NES games. Some of them look like HD NES games. Some of them claim to play like NES games while looking totally "new-age?". None of them really plays nor feels like old-school retro side-scrollers tho.
I'm not saying they're bad games. They mostly aren't. But they don't feel nor play like (S)NES games.

Oniken, however, plays and feels exactly like a classic NES game!

I was sure that Oniken is another one of those pixelated games that is super hard, claims to be "old-school" but doesn't feel or play like an NES classic and once again poor old Mets would be dissapointed.
I still gave it a shot and WOW! Just WOW!
Oniken feels just like it came out from the 80's!

Unlike any other false "old-school" games on Steam, Oniken keeps it simple: You have 2 different attacks (one of them being a pick-up), you can jump...and move back and forth. The game is hard tho. Not Ninja Gaiden hard, but hard. Challenging is the key word here.

Easy to get into, hard to master.

The combat is smooth - Your main weapon is a sword (that looks like a katana) and you can throw grenades as a secondary weapon. Grenades are pick-ups tho and you can run out of them. You can also find secret 1-UPs and some sword power-ups if you get lucky.

After each level you get rewarded with a cutscene that has the quality of Ninja Gaiden.

I managed to finish the entire game in 6h...it's possible to speedrun through the game in 15-30 minutes tho. Just like with classic NES games. Their true lengths were about 15-40 minutes but they took hundreds, if not thousands, of tries to finish.
There are 6 stages and each stage takes you about 2-5 minutes...That is if you know what to expect and you're familiar with the level layout. The first playthrough will take some time. I especially hate level 4 which took me the longest amount of time to beat.

10/10 - Nails every aspect of being a good NES game!

If you're looking for a throwback then this is it. Look no further! Buy Oniken!

Honestly, one of THE BEST retro indie games I've ever played.

Brings back the good memories from the NES era: great old-school graphics, epic soundtrack and amazing gameplay.

I would recomend it to every side-scrolling platformer/NES lover. Buy it, play it. You won't regret that.

I am 7 years old again, sitting in front of the TV playing a NES game, I remember how hard Contra was back then, using my cartridge that let you use cheat codes. ahahah... Maybe I shouldnt have cheat my way through Contra... the experience is NEEDED to play this game, IT IS HARD. You want challenge? this game is for you, you're a whiny ♥♥♥♥♥? The only game you're good at is Cod of Duty??? Pass. true gamers will love and cherish this game for a long time. I wish there was more devs out there giving love to the games of our childhood, just like Oniken does.
