“After fiddling about with connections for a bit ... it now works FINE (good responsive feedback from the developers too!) ... activate JUST Bluetooth or JUST WiFi and deactivate the other (like most multi player apps). What an absolute HOOT! It's a reduced set of western sabre moves, dressed as kenjutsu, but that's ok ... it's the TIMING and interactivity that your indulging in here ... if only that lame lightsabre app had this functionality. This is everything the Wii promised but utterly FAILED to deliver. more ! more ! more ! PLEASE !!”
"I deeply enjoyed this application since I have a deep love of kendo." A.S.
"This is the coolest game in the world:D i love it." Nikolaj N.
"Thank you very much for the perfect game!" David H.
"...It's amazing how you used the iPhone's limited motion detection to create a fun swordplay experience. All thumbs up! Thanks again for this app!" Alexander O.
"What a great game. Never seen anything like it on any platform. I'm telling everyone. Can't wait for my first in-person duel. Bound to be the biggest game for blind people in history I'd imagine. ... Can't wait to see where you go from here. Awesome stuff." J.D.
TWO-PLAYER WIRELESS SWORD FIGHT:
You swing your iPhone in a overhead attack, but your opponent holds his iPhone up to block and you hear the sounds of clanging swords. Suddenly, your opponent thrusts; you try to block but aren’t fast enough—a cry rings out—your opponent scored a hit. Quickly, you swing from left to right. Success! Your opponent’s iPhone instantly acknowledges the hit.
- Two-player game communicates over a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi network to give a two-player real-time sword fight.
- Single-player game provides four different computer opponents to fight against.
- Uses the iPhone’s accelerometers to determine different sword motions.
- Animations shows each of the possible attacks, and matching blocks are shown.
- A "dojo" training room is provided for practicing the different attacks and blocks.
- The iPhones keep track of the "battle" and show the final scores with winner and loser images.
- Art of war quotes by legendary warriors.
- For left hand play, see the tips on our web site.
- When connecting over Bluetooth, TURN OFF Wi-Fi ON BOTH DEVICES.
- When connecting over Wi-Fi, TURN OFF BLUETOOTH ON BOTH DEVICES.
- After installing iSamurai, power down and restart both devices.
- Stand back about 8 feet from your opponent so you don’t hit your phones together!
What's New in Version 2.2
- Reduced App size, so it can be downloaded directly to iPhone or iPod without having to use a computer.
Definitely worth it! The only problem i have is that you can't hear your opponent sometimes in single player. If there was an options menu that let you adjust the sound effects volume that would be great! Other than that, perfect app. Nicely done!
Last thing: Make sure you keep a good grip on your ipod/iphone, and if you feel like its going to slip, stop playing! But thats common sense.
There's no game quite like this one for the iPhone
I played the light version of this game until my arm felt like it was going to fall off, and now that I got the Full version, it just might! This is definitely the best game ever, and even better, fully blind accessible. I hope this company produces a lot more good games! I give this 10 stars. What? I can only give it five? What's the deal!
But it does'nt always recognize my moves like if I try a block or hit in single player. Maybe its me idk. If its not the game and just me, i will update and make my rating to 5 's. Maybe update and make the controls more sensitive and/or have adjustable sensitivity??????
