About This Game

Shadow Blade is an action-platformer set in a visually striking world where the ancient teachings of ninjas and samurai clash upon a modern landscape. Sprint through stages littered with traps, slaying enemies along your path without hesitation as Kuro, the blade of shadow!

Story


Darkness and chaos are once again creeping into the world of man. The covenant made in a time almost forgotten has failed, the three clans now in a violent struggle for dominance. The medallion is almost made whole again and it falls upon Kuro?s shoulders to restore balance. All his training has led up to this one moment, where the fate of the world will rest in his blood-stained hands.

Key Features

Pre-Release Review
One of the best fast-paced platformer I ever played. Perfect combination of platforming and movement with combat gives this game amazing flow in levels. Mastering is the ultimate goal in this game, like a true ninja.

this game a remarkable and very well done. and most of the early Access issues has been dealt with by the devs
this combat system is about one hit combo , there are so many forms the hard once followed by a unique tune adds sense of achievement when executed.

and platforming is highly based on wall interaction with sliding and aerial actions with a very responsive controls makes it very enjoyable.


if you love fast pace games with platforming then this game is definitely for you.
