The Legend of Tianding is a great sidescrolling action game filled with fast-paced characters, great levels, and memorable characters.

Gameplay: Traversing the trap-filled levels is fun, but the combat really steals the show.
Graphics: The game’s presentation, animations, and overall art style are really good.
Sound: Authentic music, sound effects, and voice acting bring this adventure to life
