Shin Samurai Jazz is a platform-adventure game. It combines the likes of film noir and samurai cinema, presenting them with 8-bit graphics, an electro-jazz soundtrack, and a comic/manga-like style creating a unique atmosphere. Unlike it's predecessor, samurai_jazz, Shin Samurai Jazz features jumping mechanics inspired by chuunori, an old technique used in kabuki theatre to give the illusion of flying. It's combat mechanics are more combo-based with the ability to juggle enemies and perform mid-air combinations also inspired by chuunori. While the adventure elements remain intact, the puzzles are more complex with varied level designs and enemy placements/attack patterns that make use of the game's mechanics. And while the game retains that 8-bit vibe, regenerating health and infinite lives/continues are fairly implement to relieve players of some of that Golden-Era frustration. Read More...

You should work on the controls. They're very stiff for a game made in 2013. In particular I don't like how you can't change direction so easily while fighting.

This looks promising though. Cool atmosphere.

Thank you for the feedback! I reduced the stiffness to the controls a bit while retaining some of that retro, 8-bit feel. Also, changing directions while fighting is now easier than before. Many other improvements have also been made so I'm hoping the demo will be something more enjoyable this time around.
