Added DiffLines:

* AmbidextrousSprite: Though Crow's prosthetic hand is canonically his right hand, it becomes his left hand any time he's facing left.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtShift: Heartless Abyss is depicted as solid-color silhouettes, contrasting with the rest of the game's more traditional look.


* PintSizedPowerHouse: Princess Ariella. Not only does she force Crow to keep running when he 'kidnaps' her, she can also chop through support beams in one swing.

[[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/749082525/nefarious Nefarious]] takes that concept and runs with it. In this game, you play as Crow, the leader of a villainous group who treats kidnapping princesses like it's a job, and takes his role as a CardCarryingVillain rather seriously. Crow's ultimate goal is to TakeOverTheWorld, and he's not about to let some do-gooder heroes stand in his way. Determined to kidnap every princess he can, no matter how ''[[CloudCuckooLander eccentric]]'' they may be, will Crow manage to finally cement his role as one of the [[BigBad biggest bads]] there ever was? Or will he end up an IneffectualSympatheticVillain? Only time will tell.

* BadassDamsel: Unlike the typical kidnapped princess the ones in this game tend to fight back.


Added DiffLines:

* DamselOutOfDistress: Unlike the typical kidnapped princess the ones in this game tend to fight back.

Added DiffLines:

* RoyaltySuperpower: Princesses and princes literally generate magical energy that can be harnessed to power a doomsday weapon. Princess Farrah Day is an experiment into coalescing this energy into a sentient being.[[spoiler: In the good ending Becky files the paperwork to deem Crow's territory a kingdom and, after usurping his rule on the spot, becomes a princess capable of generating power for the Doom Howitzer.]]

Supporting a cast of many different princesses for Crow to kidnap, some of which aren't going to sit idly by while Crow kidnaps them, Crow will have to use every bit of his abilities if he wishes to further his goal. Some princesses, like the EnergyBeing princess Farrah Day, will have rather odd affects on Crow's [[PowerArmor power suit]] like super charging it, while others will force Crow into some rather tricky situations. At the end of the day though, it all comes back to you fighting the princess' [[TheHero normal heroes]], but with a twist... ''You'' are the end boss battle at most levels, trying to stomp out TheHero with Crow's HumongousMecha.

Nefarious was started on WebSite/{{Kickstarter}}, just barely managing to reach it's Kickstarter goal by the skin of its teeth in it's final hour. Supporting a cast of developers from many different web projects, such as Matthew Taranto from ''WebComic/BrawlInTheFamily'' fame, the game seeks to humorously explore the princess kidnapping aspect of games of old.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* OverTheShoulderCarry: Once you kidnap a princess the whole level consists of carrying her this way. Depending on which one it is, Crow gains an additional ability. (For instance, if it's Apoidea, Crow can jump higher.)
