Default [GAME][2.1+] Shurican - ninja jumping, demon slashing, trap dodging & shurikens

Good day!

This is my new project - a little ninja fighting time waster with one-finger controls, flappy bird movement, a variety of obstacles and moving traps.



Gameplay trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LIH7Mx1fssg

Tap to jump & slash, double tap to throw shuriken. Dodge obstacles, moving traps, demon-imps and their fireballs. Currently working on an endless score-based level and more fighting mechanics.

Try it out: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...outup.shurican

This game is awesome! But why doesn't it support portrait mode?

This looks fun. I will try it out and let you know how it goes!

Just tried it. It is good fun! But I have problem aiming the shurikens at the bad guys. Seems like when I double tap, the shuriken always fire higher than expected due to the first jump...

This kind of game can be in landscape mode only. You should know what the obstacles are ahead.

"Flappy Bird" and a lot of blood - the best fans for the game. It is bound to be successful. Good app!

This is kind of intentional to keep controls consistent - double tap will do a double jump, so it is pretty hard (but possible after you get a hang on it) to aim and with a reward of sniping enemy from long distance, you have to risk bumping character in some spikes. I'm planning to add some upgrades to shurikens to make up for the usage difficulty.

Exactly what Sten Jarkoni said. Obstacles in Shurican are dynamic, some constructions are large and there are plenty of different ones, so it makes sense to see further and have some time to prepare even when you face something completely new for the first time. I think Flappy Bird was made vertical to better suit playing with one hand, obstacles were always the same and there was not a lot of sense to prepare for the pipes ahead.

And thank you for good words! I would love to see this project succeed and already working on more cool stuff for it. Like this:
