Very unique idea with the changing of characters, the art is great too! Project Japan has went far with you guys. Well done.

I love the art and the game it's really enjoyable. I found out the problem already pointed out in the "read me text" about the samurai get blocked by the collision of the terrain while running sometimes. 
The boss fight was really fun.
Can't wait to play more of this game!
