A downloadable Quest for Windows

Victory lies in a single moment of clarity.  Use your samurai skills to read the heart of battle and execute deft swordplay, or die trying.

Built around the concept of the few seconds the action hero has to plan out their next few moves, you have a short period to enter movement and attacks with WASD and spacebar, then execute them to see if you succeed. 

WASD to input a directional move + navigate menu
SPACE select + attack
F to undo the last move entered.  
ESCAPE to quit.
P for level skip.

I loved this!

This is so much Fun

Nice idea. Would have loved to find sounds and music in it. Would add a lot of extra fun. :-) 

This is a fast-paced, retro classic in the making. Such a simple concept expanded upon makes for hours of good times. I hope there's more to come from the split-second samurai.
