As renowned as the iPhone version is for its stylized manga-like graphics and its bloody gameplay, the HD version takes all the virtues of the original and improves upon them. Carefully crafted comics establish and maintain the story line between battles, lending the action increased drama. The goal of the game is to kill all the enemies in a particular setting, so as to unlock the gate and proceed on to the next stage. The player controls the Samurai with his finger on the touch-screen, moving him in all four directions. Defensively, the player swipes their finger left, right, or up to evade an enemy attack. Swiping in this way over the enemy controls the player's attack. Successfully combining swipes activates powerful combination attacks.
Gameplay is set in the midst of the Japanese Sengoku period, and the player is Daisuke Shimada, a wandering Samurai. It is the most dangerous of times, and Daisuke must ultimately face the evil Daimyo Hattoro, who has spread fear and terror throughout the countryside. Many battles must be won before meeting Daimyo, and Daisuke does battle with enemies in many villages throughout feudal 16th century Japan. There are a great variety of settings in which battles are fought, and highly detailed foliage, bridges, arenas, houses, statues, streets, etc. The game is played from an overhead point of view and both graphics and movement are highly realistic within the stylized motif of the action.

What's New in Version 1.10
* New Maxi Gore Dojo
* Various fixes
A beautiful and easy-to-play game
I've bought tons of games that did not deliver much of anything yet either looked and/or sounded great. Consequently, I did not have high expectations for this game. So, I picked it up and played it almost instantly, and the storyline was compelling and the artwork is fabulous.
I remember reading reviews about simple swipes on the screen was all there was but for some reason, I was determined to keep going and learn the combos--not something that I have done over the years for virtually any fighting game.
This game is a great value and looks and plays great! Just don't think that you're buying an RPG or adventure game. Remember it takes practice to get better and part of it is drawing the enemies away from each other so that you don't have to take on too many opponents at once. There's just enough depth and you can practice in Dojo mode to improve your skills. As far as the length of the game goes, I've still got a ways to go.
Take time, learn the controls....Fun Game!!!!
First, this game has great graphics and sound. I read mixed reviews about controls--but once you figure them out, this game is quite fun. With practice you can time your moves and kill bad guys with some skill.
The only thing I'd like to see in future versions is better feedback of when you actually do a move. A little notice in the corner is all it would take.
I'll beat this game for sure. And I'm looking forward to the sequel.
This is how you do HD
This was already a great game on the iPhone; the iPad version takes it to another level. The gameplay is simple at first, but once you're dealing with the more powerful enemies there's quite a bit of tactical thinking involved. As to the controls, they are about as brilliant and satisfying as any on the platform --I feel sad for people who find them unplayable.
As someone who has Ninja Gaiden on the DS, I really appreciate the pace of this game in comparison.
