    Fun combat and a genuinely funny script rescue this incredibly lazy port. [Issue#251, p.63]

    This game has personality and that elevates it to being a more memorable experience than if it was just left to the repetitive button mashing.

    The battles can be fun and reminded me of the old school Mortal Kombat game. What I didn’t love was that if you die you have to redo the entire battle all over again.

    An entertaining little Beat 'Em Up/RPG hybrid with an extremely large roster of playable characters. There are just four in the campaign mode,An entertaining little Beat 'Em Up/RPG hybrid with an extremely large roster of playable characters. There are just four in the campaign mode, but it would appear that ANY character in the game is playble in free play, including, funnily enough, incidental nameless NPCs. Given that individual levels are quite short, consisting of just a few enemies and/or a single boss, there a lot of levels in total, including many bonus levels that are as one might expect, much harder then the campaign. In combat, you can whail on enemies using light or heavy attacks, and the main characters at least have a small set of special attacks that are activated with 2D-Fighter-style directional inputs. There is a large amount of equippable gear items to find, overall making the game similar to other Japanese games like Earth Defense Force or Samurai Warriors, where the design philosphy seems to be to squeeze the maximum amount of gameplay out of a set number of assets. Wether this is good game design or not is up to the player. I've enjoyed many games of this type, including the aforementioned ones as well as Naval Ops: Commander and the English version of Shin Combat Choro Q, called Seek And Destroy in the US. The music and in-game voice lines of Code of Princess are a tad repeitive, as the characters make the same callouts every time they use even basic attacks, but the English subtitles are hilarious and very self-aware, and worth reading. Looking forward to trying the coop mode. Expand

    Code of Princess is a mobile game that was ported over to various other platforms, including the PC.

    As for what it is, it is your standard beat-em-up game that mixes in some light RPG like elements and a equipment system.

    If you are a fan of games like Streets of Rage, this game might be for you. If not, well it's rather grindy and is going to require you to take time to actually level up character in order to be able to actually finish the game.

    The games not bad, but it uses the leveling and equipment system to increase the length of the game. Without it, I doubt this game would be more than an hour or so worth of play. As it stands, I wasn't a huge fan of it.
