The Legend of Tianding is an exploration of a place and time often overlooked

The Taiwanese vigilante folk hero Liao Tianding, who is more than meets the eye, is controlled by the player in the violent side-scrolling action game The Legend of Tianding. Players will battle for justice in the streets of Taipei in the early 20th century, stealing the wealthy to feed the hungry and avoiding imprisonment by Colonial Japanese officials who have taken control of the city.

With a tanto, waist sash, and quick kung fu moves, players must confront the authorities in style while engaging in highly technical combat. To instill dread in the hearts of oppressors, they will perform complex aerial combos, take weapons from adversaries, wear potent talismans, and glide across the battlefield using grappling hooks.
