Hands-On with ‘Samurai: Way of the Warrior HD’

Madfinger Games released one of our favorite games for the iPhone not too long ago, named as Samurai: Way of the Warrior.  The whole theme or description of the game is that you’re a samurai slicing up all the baddies.  It’s simple enough, but wait until you hear the control method.

This is one feature that was touted as original and unique, and it has definitely lived up to its uniqueness.  You use one finger to move your character and slice the bad guys; either horizontally or vertically.  It’s so simple, in fact, that you don’t even have to be paying attention and the controls will just naturally come to you.

And with the iPhone game now on the iPad, things got even bigger.  The one-finger control method is still there, but you have more flexibility to move around.  Along with that, the graphics have been largely HD-ified to look great on the 9-inch screen.

While there hasn’t been anything new added, the developers promise to bring some new things such as a new Dojo mode once the game launches.  We’ll see if that really happens or not, but for now, this is one game worth looking forward to.  If you haven’t played the iPhone version, I would just suggest you wait for the iPad one; it’s glorious.

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.
