3. Samurai II: Vengeance

Samurai II: VengeanceThe long-awaited sequel to Samurai: Way of the Warrior has finally arrived on iPhone and iPad! While the original got rave reviews for its stylized manga graphics and quick, bloody gameplay, Samurai II delivers even more action and an intuitive new control scheme. 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 on the Retina display or popping off the iPad screen. 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?2010-10-15T17:11:30.000Z
