Yesterday we announced that there would be a version of Samurai II: Vengeance coming shortly to Android devices that are not packing a dual-core Tegra 2 chip inside. The launch initially was also supposed to be yesterday but the market was being a little temperamental. Today is a different story.
Why? Because Madfinger games has just released their awesome Samurai II: Vengeance game onto the Android Market for non-Tegra Android devices. So if you have been waiting to play this game but don’t own a dual-core Android device, this is excellent news for you considering how great this game is. Xperia Play owners get a little bonus of having support for the Xperia Play controls in this version as well which, believe me, will really make the game shine for you.
★ Support Xperia Play!
★ Intuitive virtual joystick ensures you’re slicing up baddies, not swiping the screen.
★ Dynamic camera finds the best perspective for each encounter, adding variety while keeping focused on the action.
★ Tense, quick and gory battle sequences!
– Battle hordes of on-screen enemies wielding new weapons and sporting unique abilities.
– Stay nimble and plan your attacks – roll out of harm’s way and eliminate ranged enemies like the Samurai Archer before they can strike.
★ Improved game play includes new features.
– Solve environmental puzzles, avoid dangerous traps, and discover useful items.
– The fight is on – not to worry, the combat never takes a back seat to platforming or fetch-quests.
★ RPG elements reward skilled players – upgrade the Samurai’s health, buy new attack combos and upgrade them to devastating levels.
★ Between levels, gorgeous anime-style comic panels tell the samurai’s tale with original hand-drawn artwork.
★ New survival mode pits the samurai against waves of enemies, giving hardcore players a score-attack mode to hone their skills. Two games in one!
★ Runs at 60 frames per second on all Tegra 2 Devices
★ Advanced AI system on par with console games. Goal Oriented Action Planning architecture is used in many PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 games.
★ Samurai II is developed on the Unity 3D 3.2 engine, the latest technology available on mobile devices.
★ Original soundtrack – in classic samurai movie style, soft music builds with the heat of battle.
*60 FPS only on capable devices.
You can grab this new version for non-Tegra Android devices off the Android Market right now for the same price as the THD version, which is $2.86. Well worth the money. Now we just have to wait for Shadowgun’s release.
