Nice graphics! I included it in my Movie Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to check it out! :)

I like the artwork and that it is in black and white. I think the movement was a little lagging for me when it game to dodging the knives. The wide format is really cool. I also like the music and SFX

Whoa, Kurosava entry! And art is neat.

I think it's better to face player right, it's just standart for most people)
And I with where were more throwing stars.. I mean, everybody love throwing stars)
Also arrow movement feels a bit exxagerated, I press once and he moves a lot of pixels.

Overall, a good start so keep them coming!

A pretty decent entry but hard as nails... Too bad you can't face right. Was it intentional? 

Developer

It was intentional but now that I think about it, it doesn't really make sense haha

Thanks for playing and your feedback!

Neat idea. It's almost too easy to just slice through everyone on the street without any trouble, but I suppose that's kind of the point. I assume the fade to black happens every time, I even tried a few times hitting the guy that runs off with the throw but still went black, this feels more like I've failed at something than made it to the end.

I like the art style, really made me feel like I was in one of the old movies. Good job!

Thanks for the feedback and for playing our game!

Nice little game. I like the sprites-- not enough games are in b&w.  The intro graphic is really nice too.  The gameplay is perhaps a little too simplistic, but at the same time I was getting confused: no matter what, when I get to the end of the street, it fades to black and resets.  Am I dying to something?  Or is this supposed to happen?

Thanks for playing and giving feedback!
Didn't end up putting a win screen after the fade out due to time constraints but that would be the next thing on the to-do list.
