Quality 2D hack and slasher.

I bought Rain Blood because it seemed to be a bit like the 2D Castlevania games but it turned out to be much more action oriented. You can switch between two characters while beating up enemies and racking up some insane combos. I had a lot of fun with the local co-op mode as I didn't get too far on my own but I have to point out that there is no online modes. It might not have been the type of game that I was expecting but it still turned out to be a lot of fun.

Hoping for the older parts to be released!

Rain Blood is a saga of Chinese 2d action games with great gameplay and interesting story. I played 'Rain blood: Town of Death' before and it was great, but this one includes a much better combo system, the ability to switch characters on the fly and amazing art. The two characters have a very different feeling, think of them as Dante and Virgil on Devil May Cry 3, one can avoid attacks with fast moves but no blocking, the other can cast spectral swords and use them to deal finishing blows, block or double-jump. Changing characters can make a difference on a boss battle, adding some strategic thinking to the mix. The game allows buying new moves and attacks that can be upgraded, so replaying previously finished levels to gain currency is a must. Great and fun game, i hope they release the older ones, only avilable on Chinese language by now.

Mirage is a 2D action game similar to Mark of the Ninja or Dust. Player transverse through a 2D side scrolling map with one of the 2 characters and combo through enemies for better scores. As the story progress, your character learns new moves to further utilize the combo system. A great addition to this game is the ability to coop with a friend but only limited to local. The story is great and moves at a really good pacing through the game and twists makes it even more surprising and likeable. One of the great game that shouldn't be missed to anyone who enjoy the side scrolling action genre.
