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!
I´M NOT A VIDEO GAME PLAYER. I DON´T PLAY SINCE 1986 (THE CHERNOBYL ACCIDENT). I TRYED TO PLAY AGAIN in 1989 (YEAR OF THE FALL OF BERLIN WALL) BUT THE GAMES WAS ALREADY TOO MUCH COMPLICATED AT THAT TIME. I REMEMBER THIS GAME CALLED GOLDEN AXE, THAT THING WAS JUST WRONG...MAN HUMAN CAN´T TURN INTO DOGS, IT´S JUST NOT RIGHT. SO WHEN I TRYED ANOTHER GAME FROM JAPAN,CALLED... I DON´T REMEMBER THE NAME, BUT PEOPLE REFER ABOUT THIS GAME THESE DAYS AS JRPG. I REALIZED THAT THE GAMES WAS AT THE EDGE OF THE EXTINCTION. SO TODAY (2012 LAST YEAR OF THE MAYA CALENDAR) I DECIDED TO GIVE ANOTHER TRY, BECAUSE MY SON WANT ME TO PLAY VIDEO GAMES WITH HIM. AND HE BROUGHT ME THIS NEW VIDEO GAME CALLED ONIKEN. I GOT REALLY HAPPY TO PLAY THIS VIDEO GAME, IT´S REALLY GOOD, WITH VIVID COLORS, AND A REALLY INTERESTING HISTORY (IT´S LIKE A BOOK),AND I SHOULD SAY, THAT WOULD BE A BEGINING OF A NEW VIDEO GAME ERA IF WASN´T 2012 YEAR. CONGRATULATIONS ONIKEN TEAM

Just finished the game!!
A great game!! like living again childhood moments playing arcade!
Anyone playing this game should be prepared to fail again and again against bosses until learning their movements and how to beat them, as in the old school games.
PD: 4th mission was the most difficult one for me.
This one has the heart and soul of the late 80ies and early 90ies.
If you were born as a MOST DANGEROUS, laugh at NINTENDO HARD difficulty and know that it only takes two buttons to OVERCOME EVERY HARDSHIP this game is an absolute MUST BUY.
Don't accept hipster imitations that label themselves "retro" - ONIKEN is the REAL DEAL and up there with Ninja Gaiden, Contra and Strider!
