When there’s only two buttons for movement, and two buttons for attacks, you press them with honor! SHINKENDO is a 2D minimalistic sword fighting samurai dueling game where you and another bot or player play as a samurai.
You have your sword, two buttons to move either left or right, and two buttons for a slow but high-damage attack, or a quick but low damage attack, and while it is simple to play, the tension is really high to decide which attack to use and when to use it, as well as when to defend.
