I’m implementing action based combat right now, and was looking into some reference material that I collected.
Thought I might as well make a new blog post out of this!
If you see some other nice material of action based combat, please let me know!
Warning: This page is heavy on animated gifs.

I like the graphics and the battle animations of Midora the most! Reminds me a little bit of Zelda… Somehow… ^^
Definitely, I like them too.
For RPG Playground I have the restriction that I can’t animate all the possible hero’s. But I will see what I can get out of it using an extra sword and those swing traces. It needs to support all characters + all possible weapons.
I know what you mean. An animation like in Hazelnut Bastille isn’t bad too… But I think the actors should at least ‘look’ like they’re actually swinging a sword! Means not only the sword does something but also the actor… Is that possible?
