Set in the middle of the Sengoku period, play as Daisuke Shimada, a wandering samurai who travels around Japan. During the most dangerous times, Daisuke must ultimately defeat the mad and awful Daimyo Hattoro, who rules the province.

  • First hack and slash game developed specifically to leverage the iPhone.
  • Visit unique environments in the Japan in a feudal 16th century setting.
  • Unlock all combo attacks and master your skills.
  • Original comic storytelling.
  • Special Dojo mode. Fight in the arena sparing enemies in the rounds.
  • Original soundtrack.
  • No more virtual joysticks or gamepads, only your finger & touchscreen
  • Special Dojo mode. Fight in the arena sparing enemies in the rounds


  • No more fiddling with virtual joysticks that covered the important graphics
  • smooth game play!
  • Lot’s of blood! Woohooo! It’s amazing it’s approved in that Appstore!
  • You can almost learn real Kung Fu…ok not but the styles are following REAL Japanese Kung Fu


  • The Free version only got 1 level hence limited game play (Full version on sale now)
  • Lacking in multiplayer mode! (if there are a co-op game it will be freking COOL!)
  • Need more death animation styles!! (I want more Mortal Combat gore! LOL ok kidding more random slices will be so cool)
  • No destructible environment! (Muahaha asking for a lot)
  • MMO Death match!! muahaha kidding if there is a 8 vs 8 slash & hack online or WIFI game I will pay $$$
  • Is there any RPG element? (Developer if you want a real RPG you should give hidden weapon upgrades, armor, $ drops, missions, goals & objective) but if it’s a single player game you can get bored after completion of the game hence no replay value.

Overall this game can impress most hand held gamers even force some people to peek into your iPhone or iPod touch when you play in public mauahah it’s like “what that guy doing…slash slash FWAHHhh!! Blood spilled!! Head Rolled! Bodies everywhere!” Yes a must get game! I believe this control method had potentially set a very high standard for future fighting games on iPhone!!
