From LinuxTrader perspective the game is amazing and full of potential, the fact there is no magic powers other than those specials like earthquake or stamina drop for the opponent the games is only real martial arts moves.
Is a good game, the progress of the character works very well. the interface is very good, especially for the weapons cards, the level up of the char works with logic, for example, you go with the assassin type player you can highlight the skills of poison and fire to get more damage from enemies or adjust your gear according to the mission you are doing. I will share my assassin build, it took me 50 hours of effective game approx to get it:
Amazing game, you require fast reflex fast thinking and perspective adaptation, this because the maps can play different types of shapes and illusions. The graphics are good in there retro way, the game is engaging thanks to the star system and the ship level up progress.
It has bosses, challenging maps and different game modes. Another cool thing i enjoy is the music of the game some tunes are good and makes more fun to play a map more times.
