Recensioner

“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

Om detta spel

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.

Análisis en Inglés y Español:

English:
Oniken is a big homage to old NES games, the kind that made you scream in agony and throw your control in frustration a la Ninja Gaiden. Thankfully the developer knows today standards aren’t so trite and the game is actually easy if you know what you are doing (Perseverance, GUTS and finding out that you can actually consume your blade power-ups for UNLIMITED POWER!)

For those masochistic enough the game offers a hardcore mode (unlocked after clearing the game once)

Español:
Oniken es una carta de amor a los juegos viejos de NES que te hacían gritar en agonía por lo difíciles y frustrantes que eran, es muy parecido a los Ninja Gaiden tanto en jugabilidad como en las escenas que tiene entre niveles. Afortunadamente los desarrolladores se apiadaron de nosotros y el juego es de hecho fácil si sabes lo que haces (Perseverancia, coraje y tener en mente que puedes consumir los power-ups de tu espada para conseguir poder ilimitado)

Si eres masoquista te alegrará saber que hay un modo hardcore que se desbloquea una vez terminas el juego.

In the age where most indie games feature pixel art graphics of some sort just for the sake of style or nostalgia, the developers at JoyMasher bring you the real deal with Oniken. How authentic can a modern implementation of a classic 8-bit action platformer be? Probably not much more than Oniken.

You play as Zaku — a ninja mercenary, who helps the resistance in fighting the titular evil military organization (Oniken), that's attempting to control what's left of the post-apocalyptic world. If that doesn't seal the deal for you in itself, then continue reading :).

This whole game reeks of eighties, not only in terms of visuals and sound, but the overall game design as well, not to mention the story, which is told in short cutscenes between levels. The artists did an amazing job with the visuals: the graphics aren't stylized to look like 8-bit — they are 8-bit, and great at that. The same can be easily said about sound — both music and sound-effects are unmistakably 8-bit and fit the overall game well. The levels in this game have their own different look and feature various gameplay elements and mechanics: there are classic horizontal scrolling segments, vertical scrolling segments, auto-scrolling segments and platforming segments. The boss-fights are epic, with bosses ranging from regular-sized enemy characters to bosses in crafts, mechanisms with turrets, gigantic fire-breathing snakes, etc.

Oniken doesn't boast a large arsenal of weapons — you're pretty much limited to using your massive sword (which you can power up) as the main weapon and grenades (which you'll need to pick up) as a sub-weapon, but that's not really a problem, since slicing your way through enemies is the meat of the game. Despite this, you'll have your chance to shoot some enemies via some shooting segments, which also exist in Oniken.

it's true that sometimes Oniken may seem a little bit too authentic for it's own good, with the game being rather challenging, both gameplay- and game-design wise. Think "Ninja Gaiden" on the NES. Some levels throw a crap ton of enemies at you, while other times an additional checkpoint would make all the difference. Still, that doesn't mean Oniken is a bad game, not in the slightest — it just means that you need to persevere. Git Gud or Die Tryin. Are you a man enough to play this game? Then buy it, sadly almost nobody did.

This is a slick throwback game, with very tight controls and challenging level design. It is meant to be played a certain way and it teaches you the proper way to play along the way by killing you repeatedly. If you die in this game it is your fault, which is part of the learning curve. They did a good job of simulating the NES difficulty from back in the day, but without the sluggish controls that plagued many games from that era. Protip: Read the manual to learn the secret technique to beating time trials. Overall if you love retro style games I would also recommend picking up the Oniken + Odallus combo back as both games are excellent and made by the same studio.

Loks exactly like a NES game and even plays like one. Can't say how good it is though, have to play more. I am so bad at it and I didn't even finish the first level. Shame on me, huh?

Love the art style of the game, it reminds me a lot of Fist of the North Star. The game is an adventure game that is a tribute to the old school NES days and it plays like one too. This is NES hard. Excellent soundtrack, the graphics are nice in an old school style sort of way. The controls are a bit hard to control with the keyboard so I highly recommend playing with a gamepad. I used a wired xbox 360 controller and the controls were excellent and very responsive. This is an 8/10 for me.
