Akane is a brutal arena arcade slasher based on one-hit-one-kill gameplay mechanics, where the gamer has only one goal - to kill as many opponents as possible before dying. To achieve that goal, players have a diversified arsenal of weapons and special skills at their disposal - all to face different types of opponents along the way.


 · Five types of opponents:
 · Yakuza Guy - a common mafia pawn.
 · Tank - the only villain that will require more than one katana slash to die.
 · Shooter - a sharpshooter with cybernetic enhancements. Protip: these guys never miss.
 · Cyber Ninja - a warrior who abdicated his body to become a killing machine. His dash attacks are deadly and his defense seems impenetrable. But remember: everybody has a weakness.
 · The Boss - Katsuro, your nemesis who evolves to become stronger and more dangerous with each time he is killed.

 · A large arsenal of diversified guns and equipment:
 · Katanas, each with its own unique abilities.
 · Cigarettes that change the aesthetics of your special skills.
 · Gadgets that grant small-but-significant improvements in combat.
 · Boots that change your dash and the way you move on-screen.

 · Special skills and moves:
 · Dragon Slash - dash forward, killing every enemy in your way.
 · Dragon Slayer - kill all enemies on the screen.
