Great Throw-back Action-Platformer!
All the negative reviews here were whining about the Game being to hard, well I don't agree.
Of course the Game is hard, it's a NES inspired Platformer after all, buit it's way more forgiving than Games like the original NInja Gaiden. While the challenge is constantly high, Oniken features several little things that still keep it very much do.able - if you keep trying. Every level ist cut up into three segments, and finishing a segment completely refills your health. Combined with completely strict enemy patterns and platforming rythm this leads to a wonderful curve of dying a lot to dying a lot at the Boss Fights to knowing the level Pixel by Pixel and getting through without a scratch. Oh, and speaking of Pixels, the Art and the Music are glorious, especially the Cut-Scenes are a lot of fun. Control ( with an 360-Pad ) is spot on and the short levels have an unmistakebly "One-More-Try" quality to the.
Absolutely recommended if you're into old-school action.
