Game Controls

Control Scheme

  • A - Special Attack
  • B - Jump
  • X - Weapon Change (Forward)
  • Y - Attack
  • L - Tumble
  • R - Tumble
  • SELECT - Weapon Change (Backward)
  • START - Pause

Jump

Just like any other game, Hagane jumps by holding B. While jumping tapping B and then holding it makes Hagane perform a spin jump.

When falling you can hold Down on the control pad to flame kick, does 1 damage and when it collides with an object (enemies, projectiles or background objects) Hagane bounces after the attack and gets a little height.

On the ground if you hold Down and then B Hagane slides. Usable on slopes only when going down.


Special Attack

An explosion that covers the entire screen and damages all enemies within it. Uses 1 bomb charge.

Deals 6 damage over 53 frames at 2 damage per hit. Adds 26 lag frames.


Weapons

Hagane has access to 4 different weapons that you use with Y:
  • Sword: Melee attack. 2 damage.
  • Kunai: Projectile. Flies in a straight line, 2 damage. Only 2 projectiles from Hagane can be on the screen at the same time.
  • Bomb: Projectile. Flies in an arc, direct contact does 2 damage while the explosion that results from it does 1 damage. Only 2 projectiles from Hagane can be on the screen at the same time.
  • Chain: Semi Ranged attack. Flies in a straight line, extends to a certain limit and then retracts doing 1 damage. If holding UP on the control pad, launches the chain upwards and if it hits the ceiling can bring Hagane towards it.
You can change weapons using the X to scroll forward or SELECT to scroll backwards, takes 1 frame.

Tumble

Tumbling is a special action that behaves according to the direction Hagane is facing. L tumbles to the left. R tumbles to the right.

If you tumble forward Hagane enters a flashing animation that has 3 phases. After each phase you can use either Y or B to do a special attack.

Phase 1: Hagane rolls forward.

  • Y: Slides forward with the sword.
  • B: Jump Kick.

Phase 2: After phase 1, Hagane flashes blue and jumps.

  • Y: Somersault Kick.
  • B: Spinning Kick. Hits multiple times.

Phase 3: After phase 2, Hagane flashes yellow and jumps higher.

  • Y: Slams his sword into the ground releasing a fire dragon that spreads out and does damage to all enemies nearby.
  • B: Vertical Kick. 25 damage.

If you tumble backwards, Hagane back flips and gains invincibility through it's duration.


Tricks

Camera Manipulation

Reaching a certain point in some stages triggers a cut-scene, boss fight or an end level flag. Some of these points are triggered by camera position instead of Hagane sprite. Spin-jumping, backflipping or slidding DOESN'T move the camera. Standing still, walking and tumbling forwards do. Walking is quicker in cases when Hagane is on the edge of the screen.

Animation Canceling

Every ground attack from Hagane can be canceled 1 frame after executing it, this allows Hagane to inmediately launch another one. To perfom this just slide [Down+B] for 1 frame after perfoming an action.

Vertical Boost

If you input a Flame Kick [Down in the air] and collide with an object (enemies, projectiles or background objects) Hagane bounces after the attack and gets a little height. This height can be dramatically improved by pressing and holding [B] before the collision, in cases where the object is to close to Hagane leave an empty frame and then input [Down+B].

Chain Glitch

The chain glitch allows Hagane to enter certain walls and climb them incredibly fast. To perform it follow these instructions:
  1. Place Hagane facing away from the wall.
  2. Jump and attack with the chain.
  3. Press and hold towards the wall for 10-11 frames. This will force the Hagane sprite inside the wall.
  4. Press Down. Hagane will do a Flame Kick, and then switch to a crouching state.
  5. Jump again and repeat.

If the sprite is by the edge of the wall Hagane will zip inside it, killing him if he goes too deep. To avoid this, just throw a projectile so Hagane can rise to the level of the platform.
