“It feels like it fell out of the late eighties, except the controls were tightened up during the voyage.”
7/10 – Destructoid

“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.”
80/100 – http://multiplayer.it/recensioni/105550-oniken-una-lama-a-8-bit.html

“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.”
5/5 – BitLoaders

About This Game

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.

Obviously the retro-style 2D platforming repopularization results in some awful quality games that aren't worth a penny. Luckily, Oniken is no such thing. Oniken is a beautiful gem of a game that I am so happy I encountered. Yes, it is frustrating; yes it is difficult. But that is precisely why you will love it. Too many of the games in this style have the visuals but lack the heart of old school NES-era games. This game gets it. And so should you.

I usually let these games pass me by, mere drops in the the ocean of games I cast into the 'card farming' folder. However, I actually really enjoyed this game. Deceitfully hard for newcomers, or at least those new to the genre, and surprisingly addictive. All in all, worth a gander if you've got a few hours to spare.

This game is absolutely awesome. Oniken is a 2D run and sword action game. The controls are simple, attack, jump, duck, berserk and up + attack to throw a grenade. It is all so nice. The attack distance is good and can be boosted with power ups you find. You can hang from things. This game really goes the extra mile to make you think you're playing something for the original Nintendo, while most other games going for the nostalgia feel don't have actual 8 bit graphics and music. I feel such a buzz playing this game unlike other 'retro-ish' games that miss the mark with modernized graphics and sound.

The cut scenes are nice to look at, but the real fun of the game is the game play and the enemy variety. You'll see a lot of enemies and tackle them in different ways. For modern gamers the game might be seen as difficult due to the fact if you die, you restart the section of the level. Die at a boss, restart that entire section. You'll get better! Lose all of your lives and you'll have to restart the level. Each level mainly consists of 3 sections, each with a mini boss of some sort. Since the save file allows you to just jump to a level, if I die on the first section of a level, I just go back to the menu and warp to the level I was on. Kinda makes lives on the first section of each level pointless. You have a hefty health bar like Mega Man, so the game is pretty forgiving. Pits are of course instant death.

The level variety is a mixed bag. Some levels are just bluntly walk to the right, others make you scale to the top and still others put you in a jet ski with a scrolling screen. There are a few sections that feel open where you're free to make your own path, which feels good. Some levels are needlessly difficult with a lot of action happening, but if your a veteran of old Nintendo games, you should be used to it. If not, then make an angry video about it.

There isn't that much replayability for the game, there are a few hidden items, one per level, and there are achievements for beating a level without dying. The game saves your high score for each level, but really, once you've beaten the game, there's no reason to come back to it.

Again, this is an awesome game well worth $10, it is so awesome that I'd buy any other game this studio comes out with. They hit the nail on the head. If you aren't into old school Nintendo games, avoid it.

A lot of side-scrollers, platformers, retro-looking games claim to be "old-school" and play like the good 'ol games from the NES era. - They all lie.
Games like Blood of The Werewolf, Super Meatboy etc etc...they are all good games but they don't feel nor play like NES games.
Just because you have a 2D side-scroller that is super hard doesn't mean that it's "old-school".

But here comes Oniken. I was sure that it's 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!

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 looks like from Ninja Gaiden...which is nice. Don't be afraid tho, the game is not as hard as Ninja Gaiden. It's challenging, sure, but it's not hard.
I managed to finish the entire game in 5h...it's possible to speedrun through the game in 15-30 minutes tho.
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.

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

A very well designed action platformer based on Nes Ninja Gaiden with Kenshiro as the protaganist. I'll probably say more once I beat it, but those two should be strong enough selling points for now.

Forget about "feel like 8bit". It`s a 8-bit game! All of elements of that era, graphics, music, sound, controls, animations, design, and the most important thing, the "Irritability" factor.

Very fun action-platformer with a great soundtrack and high difficulty, that unlike most attempts at retro games really could pass for the real deal.

I have mixed feelings about retro style games that are mere copycats from the golden age of video games. I get the nostalgia aspect, but the odd reality is that I cherish the memory of playing those old school games more than I actually enjoy playing them today. When I do play them, it's an immediate reminder of where games are today and how far along games have come and why products have advanced the way they have. While old school games were considered technically superior in their time, they are considered technically inferior today. In fact, most games of yesteryear made the most of the technology available to them. So designing a technically inferior product today, on purpose, is not that impressive to me.

Many great old school games are classified as abandonware and the ROMs and emulation software can be easily found to play them for whatever gaming system you cherished the most. Find them, play them, and try to enjoy them the same way you did 30 years ago. I've tried, but it's not the same. Reflecting on the memories of playing them gives me more pleasure.

Oniken is a good copycat from an era gone by, nothing more, nothing less.

I've actually died once because I was crouching and standing up so I could pretend I was dancing to the background music.

They got everything right, it really feels like a real NES game with 8 bit graphics and music.
And I'm not talking about those pretentious indie games with "pixelated graphics", this is the real thing.
Definitely worth it.

So basically Strider and Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star made an ♥♥♥ baby and out pops Zaku, the hero of our game.

It's cliche, it's drivel, it's akin to an NES D list action game from 1988... and it's awesome.

The controls are a bit too precise and the speed is a bit too ridiculous, it's a game built for zero error, however it's quite forgiving and fair if you learn to memorize it. It's kind of like Ninja Gaiden only much faster... so let that sink in for a bit.

If you don't have cat like reflexes and if your memory is poor, you need to steer clear of this game as it will drive you mad. If you're up for a challenge I would definitely suggest buying the game when it's on sale.
