New price, new game!

We just released
Odallus: the Dark Call!

To celebrate Odallus, Oniken default price now is $4.99 (from $7.99). We additionally bundled Oniken and Odallus as JoyMasher Starter Pack for a very special price of $18,99, but this week only the bundle is 16% off so you can get Oniken for less than one dolar on the top of Odallu's price!

Odallus is classic exploration/action game, inspired by Ghosts’n Goblins, Demon’s Crest and Castlevania. Player takes place of Haggis, a warrior tired of fight who must wield his sword once more to rescue his son from Darkness.

Thanks for playing JoyMasher's games and have fun!

“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

Riguardo questo gioco

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.

  • Graphics, sounds and difficulty from the 8-bit era
  • Cinematic cutscenes

Killer 8-bit sprite art and chiptunes. It's essentially an NES game without sprite flickering and slowdown. Gameplay is pretty straight forward but I'm just in love with the aesthetic.

I'm a huge fan of old NES action games and I'm really glad people still make games like these. Everything about Oniken feels like a game from the 80's or early 90's (Ninja Gaiden or Strider are the best examples) except you don't have to start from the very beginning of the game when you run out of lives (Something that I'm actually really glad isn't like how it was back in the day) which is good considering you'll do a lot of dying your first time through a level, just like any good action game. Even the story and achievements have an classic vibe to them!

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.

Nobody appreciates more than me a developer that tries to revive the old ways of video games. However, games today have to have mechanics that can hold your attention. NES sidescrollers are a dime a dozen, so it's no wonder that only a handful of them became popular with gamers. Oniken compares more to those random obscure sidescrollers when it should be more comparable to the memorable ones like Ninja Gaiden.

In honor of this game's admirable attempt to revive the NES era, I will review it as any magazine from the old days would.

---

Controls - 3/5 - Movement in Oniken is extremely fast which often leaves you little time to react to an enemy. Pressing up and attack uses a grenade, but pressing up while in the air halts your forward movement which can lead to accidental deaths when you push up.

Graphics - 4/5 - The cutscenes are decent, but the sprite animations are boring. The main character's run cycle is only about 3 or 4 frames. Backgrounds really capture the spirit of NES era graphics and are well made.

Sound - 2/5 - Music is acceptable, but has no melody to it and is easily forgettable. The sound effect you'll be hearing the most is the sword swing. Strangely, most of the other sound effects are barely audible.

Replayability - 2/5 - The game is extremely linear and doesn't offer any deviation from the main path. The only benefit of replaying the game is having an easier time due to prior knowledge of enemy placement and mechanics. Some secrets can be found in destructible walls.

I enjoyed the novelty of playing something that felt like an NES game on Steam, but that's about the extent of my enjoyment. Getting it cheap in a bundle is the only way I could recommend it. Paying full price is highly discouraged.
