Croixleur Sigma, formerly known simply as Croixleur, is now available on many of your favorite game distribution networks such as Steam, GamersGate, Humble Store, and Desura, to name but a few. Published by Nyu Media, who are best known for their frenetic Shooters or Shmups, have now delivered an Anime inspired arcade hack and slash arena-based brawler. The story is your usual fair of lighthearted anime fluff complete with the requisite sexual innuendo. However, you’ll be focusing more on the action, rather than the exposition, in this fast-paced, sword-swinging, magic wielding, combo-fest of a 3-D arcade style beat’em up.
I’ve spent a good hour playing the game and it feels just as slick as it looks. The controls are tight and responsive. Although players can enjoy the game using the default keyboard setup, it is highly recommended that gamers play this one with a controller or gamepad since the action is almost non-stop and becomes more intense with each new stage or level. However, the game is currently only available for Windows users.
