"A story of heroes, justice and samurai sabers"

Reviewed by / Jan 10, 2012

Samurai II: Vengeance is one of the best RPG we've found in Android

This Tegra HD version Samurai II: Vengeance is optimized for use on NVIDIA Tegra based Android devices only.

Although it has been a few years since its first release, MADFINGER's Games greatest success is still one of the best RPG you shall try in Android so far. Its strongest point lies on its simplicity: you embody a samurai whose purpose is to free the region from a clan of dishonest samurai who pillage and plunder the local population.

Thus, this is one of those alone-against-the-World RPG. Your success will depend on how fast your fingers are on attacking your enemies and how keen you're of learning new tricks and using new weapons.

There are three basic game modes. "Game" which is the campaign mode: choose a level and start progressing through levels. "Dojo" which is a sort of endless mode: you're alone into a ring waiting for unlimited mob of enemies so, the more you kill the better score you get. Finally, there's a "Chapter" mode in which you'll have to do some "quest". However, they're all locked and you'll have to unlock them by progressing in the game mode.

Its 3D graphics are simply great. However, that's not a burden to run it smoothly: we're just amazed of how fluent it's despite the amount of effects. There's a screenpad to control the samurai: a joystick on the left side and attack buttons on the right side. The pad is quite intuitive, and the screentouch response better than we expected.

Addictive from the first time you launch it. Great graphics, smoothly performance, game modes and difficulty levels. What else do you expect from a RPG?

Developer's original description available here
This Tegra HD version Samurai II: Vengeance is optimized for use on NVIDIA Tegra based Android devices only.

While the iOS version got rave reviews for its stylized manga graphics and quick, bloody gameplay, Samurai II for Tegra based Android phones and tablets delivers even more visual stunning graphics and polished gameplay.

Samurai: Way of the Warrior was featured in Best Games of 2009 by Apple – 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.

But looks alone won’t carry a game – 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.

Samurai II sends Daisuke on a quest for revenge across the war-scorched countryside. From a seafaring village to a flying fortress to the legendary Isle of the Dead, the samurai will stop at nothing to hunt down his arch-enemy Orochi. Will he get his Vengeance?

FEATURES:

★ Intuitive virtual joystick ensures you’re slicing up baddies, not swiping the screen.

★ Dynamic camera finds the best perspective for each encounter, adding variety while keeping focused on the action.

★ Tense, quick and gory battle sequences!
- Battle hordes of on-screen enemies wielding new weapons and sporting unique abilities.
- Stay nimble and plan your attacks – roll out of harm’s way and eliminate ranged enemies like the Samurai Archer before they can strike.

★ Improved game play includes new features.
- Solve environmental puzzles, avoid dangerous traps, and discover useful items.
- The fight is on - not to worry, the combat never takes a back seat to platforming or fetch-quests.

★ RPG elements reward skilled players – upgrade the Samurai’s health, buy new attack combos and upgrade them to devastating levels.

★ Between levels, gorgeous anime-style comic panels tell the samurai’s tale with original hand-drawn artwork.

★ New survival mode pits the samurai against waves of enemies, giving hardcore players a score-attack mode to hone their skills. Two games in one!

★ Runs at 60 frames per second on all Tegra 2 Devices

★ Advanced AI system on par with console games. Goal Oriented Action Planning architecture is used in many PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 games.

★ Samurai II is developed on the Unity 3D 3.2 engine, the latest technology available on mobile devices.

★ Original soundtrack – in classic samurai movie style, soft music builds with the heat of battle.

    For instance: the Half Moon technique, which says it breaks blocks isn't effective against the only regular mobs that matter - the spinning yellow guys. Basically it is a strategic combat game with broken mechanics.

    I just really like games like this- not enough walk-along beat-'em ups. And this one is done so well- lovely shaded cell animation and excellent slow-mo effect when your samurai decapitates someone or slices them clean in two. Nice level design too.
