Ninja. Monkey. Action.
Edo Superstar is an action-packed beat-em-up set in old Japan, featuring a colorful cast of animal characters. Guide Masaru, an energetic monkey with lofty ambitions to be the most popular fighter in the land, as he battles his way to Edo City and competes in the prestigious Zodiac Tournament.
Along the way our hero sharpens his skill and avoids his former ninja clan who hunt him for forsaking their order in his pursuit of fame.
Players control Masaru using a gesture-based control scheme that uses intuitive swipes and taps instead of cluttering the screen with virtual buttons. Slide under punches, uppercut massive foes in slow motion, parry incoming attacks, string together epic combos, and unlock even more abilities along the way.
As Masaru defeats his enemies, his fame rises allowing our hero to increase his strength, defense, speed and special stats. Money collected from bested foes can purchase special items, like stat altering amulets, giving our hero an even greater edge in combat. Performing well in a level will also yield special stars, which upgrades Masaru’s equipment.
What's New in Version 1.4
Bug fixes, iPad now fully supported!
Get your monkey's worth
A charming simian smackdown well worth the simoleons. Don't be put off by the initial difficulty—the curve will flatten as you accumulate skills and gear. (Spring for the big coin package after netting a superstar or two: you'll be rewarding these wonderful creators and enabling yourself to buy some snazzy and useful equipment, which I found took the imposing edge off the early game.) Having now finished, I can say I already miss this floating world of wistful horizons, kimono-clad cats, star-secreting coffers, and cudgel-brandishing porcine thugs in pink gis—not to mention the quippy, trash-talking dialogue, which had me consistently macaque-eling. In short, I want more! I can imagine an old-school fighting game from these forces (and with these characters!) could be brilliant. Until then, I'm off to superstar everything and indulge in just a little more four-fisted pugilism in old Edo with Masaru and friends.
Way too much fun
The art is amazing, and the gameplay is super fun. Edo Superstar! Don't sleep on this one.
