I played a little of this at Midwest Gaming Classic. It's a bit of a trick to train your mind to do the defending with one hand and the attack in the other. As I was in a combat session thinking I was botching my attacks, I was in fact, as the person there told me, "defending like a boss".

I didn't play enough of it to get a good taste for the game. It looked neat and I can't recall a game similar to it on NES. The control scheme keeps you more active in the game, requiring hand/eye coordination to attack and defend instead of waiting for a turn.

I do have one question: would this game be compatible on a modded NES or SNES Classic?

I talked to Rob (the developer) and it sounds like it should work on the NES and SNES classic.  When you beat a boss, it will ask if you want to save, you will need to select no.  It uses flash memory for saving, so if it's not emulated then mostly likely nothing will happen (but maybe it could lock up, so better to select no).  I have an NES classic but haven't tried modding it yet.  If it's running FCEUX, then that does support flash saving.

I had time to try out a couple of the other games of the series on my NES-Classic. They work great! Thanks for looking in on this!
