App description: Be more than just a Samurai!

Take on the role of a rnin, a samurai who has been disowned by his master, as you make your way through a fantasy Japanese land, encountering bandits, archers, samurais and other ykai as you go.
Help the people you meet to accomplish their missions and collect as many wisps as you can in order to make use of the powers that lie dormant within you.

Are you ready to face over 100 different waves of enemies at breakneck speed?

Rnin has been designed to be as much fun as possible from the outset. Whether you are a die-hard gamer or just play occasionally, you are sure to face your enemies with the same enthusiasm.
You can dodge, jump and attack with a simple finger movement, meaning you instantly get the hang of the game.

Collect wisps, the energy needed to develop and use your powers. Thanks to your experience and your reflexes, you will soon be beating your own scores and those of your friends!
But don't be fooled: Rnin provides a real challenge for perseverant players.

No pay-to-win or virtual money involved: all players start on equal footing so that everyone can progress at their own rate.


A few stats:

- Over 100 different waves of enemies that appear at random.
- Unlock the 9 destructive skills that have a great impact on the outcome of each stage.
- Make your way through the 5 lands, each with a different enchanting atmosphere.
- Secondary missions that improve your score are hidden in each stage.
- 5 tunes provide the soundtrack to your adventure.

It could be the best "under the radar" release of the week. The trailer looks amazing and i can't wait to see if it controls well. Expensive day...

This is pretty good... Text has a lot of errors, luckily there isn't much of it past the tutorial. The game feels a bit slower than it does from the video though.

Apart from that, it's quite interesting. You control jump/slide and attack by swiping on screen and you must avoid enemies of different kinds. There are different "quests" that a villager gives you at the start of each section. Completing these gives you "rep" which fills up a bar at the end of the game. If you manage to fill it, you get a multiplier added to the score. (Not sure if that's to the run's score, or permanently from that point on.

The missions themselves are quite fun and varied, including at least one "boss fight" (it was just a different, cooler enemy that ran away and came back, but still!) and slashing propaganda posters, freeing geishas in distress, etc.

You get exp for defeating the enemies. When you level up, you get a point to spend on passive or active perks and skills. Fun stuff.

The art obviously looks gorgeous.
