The Unstoppable Edition enhances the acclaimed hardcore challenge of Oniken with a bevy of gameplay, level design, and graphical improvements.
First released on PC, and ported to Nintendo Switch earlier this year, Oniken is a loving homage to one of gaming’s golden ages that has been applauded by critics and embraced by fans:
Defunct Games – “A killer story, non-stop action, incredible cinemas, massive boss fights and a whole bunch of awesome unlockables… Oniken is a retro remake done right”
The Switch Effect – “If you’re looking for that throwback nostalgia, this game will be near-perfect for you”
Destructoid – “If you love 8-bit games and hate yourself, dying repeatedly within Oniken’s six merciless levels brings its own form of joy that is rare in games these days”
