BRNO, Czech Republic - December 20, 2010
MADFINGER Games today announced that Samurai II: Vengeance, their premier hack-and-slash action game, is now on sale for a limited time on the App Store. With stylized anime graphics and quick, bloody gameplay, Samurai II delivers console-caliber action and tight touch controls. The recent free spinoff, Samurai Dojo, has been downloaded over one million times this month alone. Samurai II earned rave reviews from CNET, GamesRadar, PocketGamer, MacWorld, SlideToPlay, TouchArcade, and more. It’s a universal app, and the Retina display graphics make it a great way to show off your iPad or new iOS device. This marks the first-ever Samurai sale, and the deal won’t last long; download it now!
Samurai II’s campaign takes hero Daisuke from a serene village to the Valley of the Damned on his quest for revenge. With tons of enemies on screen, players will chain together huge combo attacks with devastating finishing moves. It also includes the full Dojo mode: easy to jump into but challenging enough to keep high-score junkies coming back for “just one more.”
High production values and vicious action put Samurai II on par with console brawlers. Screenshots don’t do it justice – the fluid action has to be seen on the iPhone’s Retina Display or popping off the iPad screen. As players progress they’ll unlock new combos and bolster their abilities. With a virtual d-pad, dynamic camera, environmental puzzles and clever enemies, Samurai II is the ultimate hack-and-slash brawler for mobile gamers. At 66% off the regular price, Samurai is heating up the iPhone charts this holiday season
Samurai II: Vengeance features:
• Quick and gory battle sequences: hordes of on-screen enemies will fall to your devastating attacks.
• Intuitive virtual joystick ensures you’re slicing up baddies, not randomly swiping the screen.
• Avoid dangerous traps and solve puzzles -- the combat never takes a back-seat to platforming.
• Between levels, gorgeous hand drawn comic panels tell the samurai’s tale.
• New score-attack survival mode lets players hone their swordplay skills.
• Apple Game Center support with leaderboards and achievements.
Samurai II: Vengeance is carving up the App Store, available for a limited time at a mere $0.99. This Universal App is compatible with iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G, and iPad.
