Okinawa Rush is a unique game that has its roots sunk into a variety of different genres. Part sidescroller, part platformer, part RPG, it even has multiple ending choices for different characters like a visual novel.
The storyline is well developed, explaining just why our hero is fighting monsters and leveling up to become the strongest martial artist in the world. The story goes that a ruthless army of ninja known as the 'Black Mantis' clan has come to Okinawa. They destroy the livelihoods of the people, steal everything from them, and kill many—all while looking for the legendary training scroll of Hiro Yashima.
The main character comes home one day to find he has been a victim of this clan, and that his family has been killed. Only a cryptic note is left on his hand. Your job is to journey to get your revenge on this clan, and stop the killing once and for all.
Interesting attack system
Okinawa Rush has a unique system that allows you to perry any move in the game as long as you time your perry correctly. This even includes boss level attacks, projectiles, and even traps. If it is in the game, you can perry it. Perrying attacks is to your advantage. Every perry you manage raises your ‘rage’ bar, which allows you to perform stronger attacks. Attacks in the game can also change the environment, opening up secret locations in the world around you.
Many of the games features were inspired by “Dragon Ninja”, which is very apparent in some of the battle scenes involving multiple opponents. In the end Okinawa Rush is all about defeating mobs ranging from Ninjas to Demons, and that really shows in the fight scenes.
Level your dojo
You can also customize your dojo to give you new and better stats. Arranging the furniture in special ways gives you "feng shui" bonuses. The dojo also has a few mini games attached, such as a dance game where you have to form katas to a specific rhythm.
Multiplayer options available
Most sidescrolling games are solo, but Okinawa Rush allows you to bring a friend in a local co-op mode. This adds an interesting and unique dimension to the game.
Easter Eggs everywhere
Okinawa Rush is meant to have layers, and there are plenty of those to discover. You never know what change you make will help you discover a new area, solve a mystery, or uncover a previously unknown scene.
While the full game releases October 21st, the demo of it gives players a rich experience of what is to come. It’s clear from the preview that the developers have spent a lot of time on this game, shaping it from an ordinary sidescroller into a unique and powerful game that has a lot to offer. If you’re looking for something unique to play, Okinawa Rush is definitely worth a try.
