Samurai: Way of the Warrior is an action game where players take control of a lone samurai on his quest to topple an evil warlord. You travel through a number of different levels fending off enemy attacks and returning the favour, hopefully with a decapitation or two.
You move the samurai by dragging your finger on the screen in the direction you want him to go and attack by swiping the screen. As you attack, you will increase your combo counter that also unlocks extra combo moves. The controls work well, but the combos don’t register as well as you’d like them to. And players can often get away with swiping blindly until all enemies are dead.
The visual style of this game is fantastic; the Japanese watercolour cut-scenes and beautifully rendered landscapes look great. The sound is also quite good, but is more of a necessity than anything else, providing prompts of when to counter enemy attacks. The game is single player only but offers two game modes, Story and Survival. Each with leaderboard and Facebook or Twitter tracking options via Agon.
Samurai: Way of the Warrior is a great action game that offers players lots of blood soaked mayhem. And while the game does has some issues, like the combo system and the game’s repetitive nature, there are still a decent amount of game modes and fun gameplay to keep you entertained.

★ Samurai II: Vengeance released !!! ★
The long-awaited sequel to Samurai: Way of the Warrior has finally arrived on iPhone and iPad! Samurai II is a true successor, aided by over a year of focused development.
Overall production values and vicious action put Samurai II on par with console 3D brawlers. Screenshots don’t do Samurai II justice – the fluid action has to be seen running at 60 frames per second on the Retina display or popping off the iPad screen.
The developers listened to fan feedback and improved gameplay throughout. With a new virtual d-pad, dynamic camera, environmental puzzles, traps, and vicious new enemies, Samurai II is brand new experience for hack ‘n’ slash gamers on the go.
