“Muramasa” is, quite simply, beautiful. I have long believed that VanillaWare's incredible sprite-work is what 80% of modern games SHOULD look like, with the remaining 20% free to experiment with polygons and Uncanny Valleys. “Muramasa's” environments are built from innumerable layers of parallax scrolling, many of which contain animation, that create a world that is...
