Taiwanese folk hero beat 'em up platformer.
The gameplay loop is extremely solid which impressed me because I don't like beat 'em ups. The theme is distinct and quite charming, the comic book style provides some great artwork between gameplay sections. Most elements of the game are simple but good enough to get the job done which is fine.
The difficulty level is not very hard outside of bosses which are considerably more difficult and frustrating at times, though it is equally satisfying when you learn the openings and go ham on them.

Rating: 8/10 - Great
Incredible boss fights, good story and decent platforming. Not much to say beyond that. Go play it.

muito massa o robin hood da tailandia mas não sou mto fã desse gênero de combate

Interessting Action-Plattformer with some neat ideas. Liao Tianding isn't just a fictional character but historic persona. I enjoy going back in the time of early 20th century Taiwan/Taipei with all the cultural influences from China and Japan.
The level design is quiet ok, I somehow enjoy this weapon stealing mechanic, which is mostly known by Beat-em-ups. The boss-designs are very good. But by far the best part of the game is the visual presentation. The Art work ist just nice. I also enjoy the quality of the translation (checked german and english), which isn't a given by many games from China or Taiwan.
The one thing I didn't like was running around in the City, speaking with characters I don't really care for. Felt like a waste of time until watching the credits.
It's by far not the best game ever, but a solid plattformer. Got it on lunar-new-year-sale on Steam.

Art style looks great, love the historical nature of the story, and really enjoyed the "stealing weapons from your opponents" mechanic. But the actual combat and platforming mechanics feel off and it couldn't keep my attention.
