Oniken is a 2D platform action indie game that make use of 8-bit graphic style. My friend Pedro Paiva and I are putting a great effort to guarantee that this game feels really like an 8 bit classic. Everything on Oniken, from the character design to the music, is a tribute to the 8-bit action games from the NES era. So if you like old-school games be prepared for Oniken and remember... Oniken is NES hard!

By purchasing Oniken, you will also get with no extra charging Oniken´s Manual and Original Sound Track composed by Thommaz Kauffmann, Bruno Araujo and N-Freq.

*** Mac and Linux version uses wrappers. They're not a port, however in almost every machine that we tested the game it runs without any problem. However if you had a problem please e-mail us!

Oniken v2.0 is available!

Hey everyone, it appears that was some weird bug, however the guys from Desura aid that was fixed, so I hope that is everything running ok now, however you can still download the game without Desura's client, just open desura on a browser, log with your account, enter the Desura's Oniken page and you guys will see this:

Just download the files and it should work! =)

There is a bug with the first boss of mission 4. When he jumps into the air if you press the pause buttton he will jump again while in the air. So you can slash him a few times before he comes down, pause the game, he jumps into the air again, slash him a few more times, pause the game, he jumps again in the air again, rinse and repeat.

Never let him touch the floor while you kill him in the air.

Gonna be trying this pause exploit with a few more enemies, see what I can find.

You can also use the pause exploit on the snake when it spits fire. Have not tried it on earlier levels yet.

If you haven't figured it out yet I just went here, "http://www.desura.com/collection" outside the browser and downloaded it to my desktop from the options...
I can't seem to play it using the Desura Client but it works fine straight from the desktop, hope it helps some... :)

Fantastic! This works perfectly! I also noticed that going into Desura's directory and running the game directly from there works. It seems that going through the client is where it all goes wrong.

Thanks a lot for your help!
