Croixleur - An Arcade Game Review

Croixleur is an indie game developed by souvenir circ. It's an arcade game that boasts a lot of hacking and slashing. And if you play it on Normal mode or Hard mode, you bet your *** there's a lot of hacking and slashing. In other words it's challenging and kind of addicting.

A lot of the games published by NYU Media begin with a VERY wordy story, and this one is no different. Without voice actors, it seems like a lot of reading. But if you remember those old nostalgic games of the past, most of the dialogue was a ton of reading.

Every time you lose the game you'll have to start over at the very beginning. There's no saving.

However, if you gain new swords over the course of the game you can use them next time you have to start over. Actually one of the main perks is getting new swords and stuff.

The story follows our red-haired heroine Lucrezia and her rival, Fran. They kind of have a love-hate relationship.

There might also be some kind of sexual tension between them. However, I don't think you'll see any good stuff. But there's definitely moe between them ;)

Well I tried my best to film my impressions of this promising indie game. You can see the a lot of the gameplay in this video. Overall, if you get addicted to games easily you'll get addicted to this one. I was playing it on Normal mode which is very challenging. I'd say that easy mode is way too easy and hard mode is way too hard.

 I bet you can't make it this far....

Or this far....

This game only costs $4.99 to download and have all to yourself. It's pretty good if you're bored and you have a lot of pent up anger. It can be beaten pretty quickly though.


Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers

This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.
