    oh yeah! we had Samurai blitz and Sumiken, and i hope this will be just as awesome!
    Monetisation?
    Unlockable characters/ weapons/ abilities/ palettes?
    Different stages/bosses?
    and finally
    Controls? left tap/ right tap?

    Kalispera Ramzarules,

    Ti kanis? :) First of all, thank you for all these questions. So, we hope we have created one great SideScroller, hope it adds up to your expectation.

    Concerning the monetisation we started out with the plan to release it as a premium game. We then skipped to a very honest and fair freemium model. There will be four IAPs (Three gold bundles, Remove Ads). Concerning Ad Monetisation we didn't want to destory our environment so we dismissed banner Ads and went for a fair Interstitial frequency and Rewarded Videos. Any concerns here I will gladly step into even more detail. We are open to any input even on this matter.

    The game in its current state comes with three game modes: Missions (Scrolls, Riceballs and Enemies), Quests (Spionage, Supply, Ambush) and Endless (Several different environments). Two general environments: Forest and Sunset (Cherry Blossom) and several different objects: Trees, Bamboo, Toriijs. We are currently adding long range weapons. More costumes are planned for the first update. We really spent a lot of efforts on the different game modes and Level Design. We want the game to be like water :)

    We are probably the biggest nerds for Manga's such as Ninja Scroll and famous historical characters like Miyamoto Musashi. I hope this gives you an insight in what to expect. =D

    Best

    ha, well done on your Greek use :)

    Monetisation, i think it would be fine with this as long as there is also a gold doubler - so ad removal + doubler would be around the premium price point you had initially planned. This would essentially turn it into an opt-in-premium, with the benefit of rewarded ads for people who don't want to pay.

    If you couple that with a good amount of initial content and resposive control, it's a win in my book.
    Looking forward to it, good luck!

    We have one in our team! :)

    This game is a tribute to the good old Shinobi type of games. Therefore, we really wanted to create a game the people love to play, wether they have money to spend or not and not being annoyed with an ad overdose. Your feedback has been added to our list. Be sure it will be a fair system. :)

    We will do that. Already back at work again!

    Efcharistó polý!

    This looks pretty cool! I have read on Facebook that there is currently a closed Beta running. Any chance to get access?

    Hey there,

    yes, it is possible. But you don't have too much time left! September 20th we'll close the test. So all feedback after the 20th of September can't be considered for being implemented in the release version anymore.

    Please send me a PM.

    I've been having a lot of fun with this. The controls are really tight which is a necessity for this kind of game. The visuals and graphics are spot on as well.

    Would love to have some form of ranged weapon as there are times I'll miss a collectable as you have to wait until you are right up against your enemy before killing. Definitely have to play levels a few times and then work from memory so that you get 100%. The scroll.rice ball placements are challenging so have to remember which is the best route to take.

    Other than the addition of ranged weapons or maybe a variety of weapons to unlock, I'd say people are really going to enjoy this one.

    This is out

    Was pumped for this. Not optimized for the X which is kind of a bummer, but assume that will be updated?
