Good concept. It would a good addition if you could make it so that you could choose which enemy in range to prioritize. Also, I love the art style.

This is a super "cool" mechanic! I think there's a lot to be improved but this could be truly great, the potential is very high imo. I'm imagining something that feels similar to pulling off Irelia's Q (from League of Legends) on a bunch of minions. 

I think it needs to be clearer which enemy I'm going to dash to, a few times I'd have two in range and the game would choose the enemy that would kill me.

I think with the RNG tuned and more juice this could be awesome.

The art and sound are well done. However, I feel like the most effective way to get a high score is also the least cool. Just jump and hit the ninjas One by one. Instead, Consider multipliers or something like that to force players to do cool stuff and. Remember that given the choice between cool and winning most players will do watever makes them win. Mark did a good video on this same topic

This game has a LOT of potential. Adding a few things such as a health bar (or Coolness Bar!), projectiles (both for the player and the enemy), Invincibility after dashing, Double jump and different types of enemies could make the game more complicated. Also getting power-ups after killing a certain number of enemies would be nice too, like getting a shuriken with every five kills.

The only annoying thing for me was the times I could dash at several enemies but the game chose the enemy near the edge of the screen leading to my fall.  Anyway, great job!

Most of the things I think about the game are "It needs more stuff to show how special it is".

As is not it's only a small cool mechanic (that really needs to give me half a sec of invulnerability after dashing). I like that falling off makes me think more about when and what I need to dash to stay closer to the safe zone in the middle (:

Cute idea, but I REALLY wish there was short hopping

The presentation is awesome,the gameplay conceptually is great and decently excecuted!!Theres is a lot of RNG and a lack of depth,complexity and replayability.

not bad

If improvements were made to the RNG ass well as the ability to change your target within your range so you can improve chaining (It's a lot of fun to chain. perhaps encourage it with a combo counter?), this would be an excellent game.

Very cool aesthetic and idea. But falling off the sides just plain feels bad as there is often no way to avoid or control it.

I like the graphics, the music and the whole idea... Very fun game... The only bad is that it is too random... if you are on the edge and the only enemy comes from that side you can either dash him and fall or let him kill you... You should keep at it... The concept was awesome...

Nice concept, but at times it felt like the outcome was left to the respawn's RNG rather than to anything I could do.

"Sojiro decided it was not his thing" made me chuckle.

Cool visuals, dashing through the enemies has lots of satisfying feedback, and the music is great.  Gameplay however is a little basic and could use an extra option for the player other than just the jump and dash. Maybe something like scorpion's special ability in Mortal Kombat could work really well with the game..

This was fun and a little  addictive too

Interesting concept, decent aesthetic, too little feedback on where your character goes on his second jump and who he's targeting, very minimalist. Could become an interesting mobile game
