Daikenriden – a 2D survival platformer
Daikenriden is a 2D survival platformer built with an 8-bit theme. The gameplay revolves around you surviving long enough to decrypt the game’s story. You access the story via the main menu.
During your battle with time, various things will help or worsen your chances to survive. The most prominent thing you will be dealing with are those laser beams which fire at random intervals. The little ball-like object can be helpful if you can reach it—it can contain a shield, a jump boost, a small ramp that you can deploy in space, and more.
Another catch is that, sometimes, you will see that the whole room rotates or goes upside down, adding to the challenge. The controls are simple, arrow keys are for movement “Z” key for jump and “X” for using items.
