I have to say that 3000th Duel does look very interesting (from what I could gather by viewing the trailer). Side-scrolling games have a very limited niche, in my opinion. And it can be tough to get a broader audience to feel interested in such an indie title. But still, I do like the graphics and the action-centric gameplay that was shared.
