Ninja Gaiden Deckbuilding Roguelite

Hey all,

For a summer project I thought I'd try my hand at turning the mechanics of ninja gaiden into a deck building roguelite. The idea is to make action game mechanics more accessible to an audience that isn't used to the speed action games normally have. I figured it might be a good idea to get some feedback from the people already familiar with those sorts of mechanics. It's not a 1-to-1 recreation but follows the general rules ninja gaiden has. UTs, knocking enemies into walls, downing enemies, stunning with shurikens, etc.

I know this sort of post isn't typical of the forum, but I couldn't find anything indicating this would be against the rules. If anyone has any objections to me posting this I apologize and I'll take it down. Or I guess a moderator will.

ok I don't think this game represents NG at all. It's like some version where enemies move 10 times slower. Game gets too easy since you can just move to an enemy, combo, cancel recovery with throwing star nearest enemy not being comboed, then continue your combo, repeat

Radical idea: Enemies move the amount of recovery your moves do. such as if you do a light attack, all enemies not being comboed move 1 tile. If you use a move with 2 recovery, they move 2 tiles or move 1 tile and attack if they are adjacent.

I do like the universal throwing star and move but they really need to be their own icons on screen. most ppl will not bother to read instructions to find out they are available.
