Pay What You Want for Shin Samurai Jazz!
Shin Samurai Jazz is Available Now
Description
Release date: December 11th, 2013
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.

Features:
  • Adventure through an 8-bit city and free it from it's pixelated nightmare
  • Chuunori inspired platforming with double-jumping, wall-jumping, and aerial dashing abilities
  • Perform attack combinations on land or in mid-air and juggle enemies to overcome their strategic placement and attack patterns
  • Solve puzzles that will test your platforming skills and tease the brain a bit
  • Supports Xbox 360 controllers
  • Play a retro game without some of those retro frustrations. We're all in the mood for a retro game every now and then...

Don't judge the game till you've tried it. Screenshots and video don't do it justice. It feels great to play and the music is super cool.

it has not so good aspects, but the overall gameplay mechanics feels good, it's kinda like Super Meat Boy, but with swords. the music is excellent. the biggest complaint here are the graphics. not the thing that they're 8-bit, but they should be more detailed, and better animated... but then, there are less good looking games on steam already, and other then that Shin Samurai Jazz is a nice experience, and should be on greenlit. :)

The gameplay looks incredibly dated. I realize also you're going for a "Retro" look for the gfx, but it all comes across as a bit lazy.

Needs work, so no.
