ZANSHIN is a martial arts strategic combat app. Fight in 1 player mode against the CPU or against a friend in 2 player mode over Bluetooth.
It has been featured both on the worldwide iTunes (PC/Mac) App Store's GAMES->WHAT'S HOT list and the App Store's HOT NEW GAMES list in December!!
WHAT REVIEWS ARE SAYING: "Gameplay: The effort the developers put into this game is quite noticeable."…"realism in a fighting game is necessary to attract someone, and Zanshin is full of it. It's probably the best and most realistic martial arts tournament combat game I've ever seen"

LuthienT: "I am very impressed with this game. I love that it is accessible to a newby but allows for much more advanced play as you gain skill. This is a lot of game for the money."

kung_fool: "I've been waiting for a simulation-style martial arts game on the iPhone, and among the sea of sound-boards and 8-bit arcade clones, only Zanshin scratches that itch."
Upcoming ZANSHIN Version 1.2 will be a big update. Some enhancements include: new fight moves, new backgrounds, new audio, updated controls, new mini games, new gameplay mode options, and a couple of surprises.

Customer Reviews


Lovely animation of the characters and the combat is good once you get to grips with it. However, there are eonly 5 back drops and two characters despite the huge number of levels. Would love to see more variety of scenery, more character types and even, if possible different traditional styles of karate, kung fu etc.


A brilliant game, great price and great gameplay. I cannot wait for future updates and the "hidden suprise" promised in V1.2. The inclusion of weapons would be amazing, but obviously difficult to put in.
Awesome game!


Truely awfull game. I would rather rub vics in my eyes
