“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

Tietoja pelistä

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

Oniken on näppärä tasoloikinta NES/C64-hengessä, mutta kaatuaa hiomattomuuteensa. Linux-versio on pelkkä WINE-viritys, jonka kanssa oli jos jonkin sortin ongelmia. En saanut sitä pienellä virittelylläkään toimimaan täydenruudun tilassa. V-Sync lisäksi rikkoo pelin vaikka juuri tässä pelissä olisi äärimmäisen tärkeätä, että se pyörii samassa tahdissa kuin näyttösi kykenee päivittämään ruudut esiin.

Muuten peli on kyllä visuaalisesti ihan asiallisesti tehty. Ja noudattaa myös enemmän tai vähemmän esikuviensa ulkonäköä. Eihän se nyt ihan autenttinen ole, mutta ei sen nyt ihan justiinsa tartte ollakkaan.

Onikenin musiikki on ehkäpä paras asia koko pelissä. Se on ihan kohtalaisen hyvää kamaa jota jaksaa kuunnella pidempäänkin. Muutenkin äänet ovat hyvin esikuvilleen uskollisia ja laadultaan hyvällä tasolla.

Onikenin ohjaus on ihan silkkaa helvettiä. Esim. hyppy ei aina tottele ja painikkeissa on kaksoistoimintoja LJN-hengessä. Kranaatin heittäminen edellyttää, että painaa ylös ja ja hyökkäys. Mutta et voi aina olla varma siitä mihin suuntaan se lentää joten joudut kanssa painamaan varmuuden vuoksi vasemmalle tai oikealle. Enemmän ehkä tottumis kysymys. Mutta oikeasti jokaisessa hyvin tehdyssä vastaavassa pelissä painoit aina erikoishyökkäys-painiketta. En edes käsitä miksi hyppäys on oma painikkeensa eikä sitä ole laitettu ylänuoleen tai jotain. (Huokaus) Noh, jahka pelaan pidemmälle...

Sitten on ne design-viat joiden vuoksi en pystynyt nauttimaan pelistä. Esimerkiksi miekalla ei voi iskeä yläsuuntaan, ja peli silti pudottaa hirviöitä ruudulle yläviistoista. Ideana olisi hyppiä miekkaa heiluttaen luoteja väistellen. Mutta siitä tulee vain paha mieli sillä osuminen on vaiketata kun hirviöt tarrautuvat pelaajaan ja hyppäämällä otat vain vahinkoa itseesi. Hyökkäämiseksi pitäisi liikkua johonkin suuntaan, hypätä ja yrittää iskeä.

Terveys kuluu kohtalaisen nopeasti. Ja sitten kuolon korjatessa satoaan peli rankaisee pelaajaa vähän turhankin herkästi pudottamalla pelaajan kentän alkuun. Rajatut elämät kun yhdistetään soppaan niin siitä tulee vähän turhan sakea omaan makuuni.

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!

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.

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.
