About
Slash through the armies of mechanical fiends to free your clan and discover what's happened during your rather long hibernation. You can choose to take the life of your clansmen for fully powered elemental attacks, or spare them and face a more difficult challenge with pure sword skills.
Mixes hints of Metroid, Castlevania, Ninja Gaiden, Megaman and probably a number of other things too.

Kinda follows NES limitations, but not religiously.

Gameplay
-Implemented-
NES style controls with two buttons.
Sub weapon - throwing stars.
Health upgrades
Rising fire - Upwards flame strike
Lightning - downwards lightning lunge
Wall jumps
Parrying
30 something Enemy types.

Status:
40% done

Working on:
Level 5 - Darklab: spreading chaos that takes over biological and mechanical beings alike

Team
Me - MekaSkull
Musician - Pentadrangle

I love the skill menu, those animated orbs are pretty neat looking if not pretty simple animations.

This looks so cool! Love the sprite work, like a crossover of Ninja Gaiden and Metroid :).
