Here is an overview of Osman:

Cannon Dancer is an Action Jump & Run set in a dystopian late 21st century where the world is under the control of a single federal government. One day, a new threat known as “Abdullah the Slaver” – an evil sorceress who wants to take control of the world – appears, causing widespread terror and panic. This fear encourages the abandonment of all economic activity and corruption in government, which now undermines the very foundations of society. Judicial Affairs Director Jack Layzon fears the worst and calls in a lone hitman.

The player controls a Cannon Dancer called Kirin; a top class agent in a mercenary unit known as “Teki”, and a highly skilled martial arts fighter. As he travels, he must face not only Abdullah the Slave and the government forces, but also the other members of Teki, who want him dead for personal reasons.
