Pay What You Want for Shin Samurai Jazz!
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.

  • 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...

VOted as well, especially if it's much the same as samurai_jazz (but improved, obviously) it's a Must Buy for me if it ever manages to get on Steam
