Samurai delivers gore and soothing music. It dropped to $0.99 on Saturday and will be on sale for a week. I have only completed a few levels, and I really enjoy it. Like other reviewers, I too find it a little repetitive, but the combo moves keep coming and the bodies keep piling around my noble Ronin. Then again, what games on the iPhone aren’t at least a little repetitive? It is novel, well drawn, and does a good job for a scroller at providing a nice 3D feel. For a buck$1.99, it gets my vote.
If you want to try it out, the lite version can be found on iTunes: Samurai Lite
If you can’t be bothered to try the lite verion, here is a YouTube video of gameplay: Samurai iPhone App Game Play
Update 20 Oct ’09: The sale is over. The price is to $1.99. It is still a great, unique game for that price. While free games good games are best, keeping a developer in business making innovative, fun games is good karma too. Check out the lite version. If you like it, make the devs day at Mad Finger Games and cough up the $1.99.
