An action/adventure game taking ques from both film-noir and samurai-drama's of old, "samurai_jazz" takes players on an adventure through an enigmatic city, engaging in realistic sword-fights, encounters with mythological beings, and quirky dialog with the local inhabitants all presented in a pseudo 8-bit format. While action remains the central focus, a bit of detective work and puzzle-solving is necessary along with the usage of twitch-reflexes while having to plan and perform strategies effectively to overcome each of the game's abstract scenarios.

I was really interested. But after watching that, everyone dies the same way, and the main character only knows one attack. Adding a touch of variety there would really help, even if its still only one attack button.

Yes, animation variety would be pretty cool.

This game seems like it needs to be quicker pace wise. And a few different jabs or slices would be great.
