Hmmm.. Manny as a martial arts hero! Interesting.. Perhaps a video to show some game play? It'll be all about the controls, whether this is any good or not...

Uploading a little one now but it's a well easy game.

Main story takes like 30 mins at a push.

Basically it's just one fight after another with some mini bosses and main boss who has your girl.About 20 fights till you finish game.

Tap left side of screen to dodge left,same for right and then when it says hit him you just make gestures on screen to do your different combos/moves.Dodge again and rinse and repeat.A clue on screen will tell you which side of the screen to hold and dodge that way so well easy like i say.

You can level up and upgrade gear but it costs a fortune.I've finished story but you can just keep fighting enemies it seems till you get bored.

IAP in game and you will need it(not that you will mind) as i say everything costs way too much to unlock them playing the game as you earn so little after each fight.

Game is very easy. You press avoid and the enemy will never hit you.

Game looks awesome.


How do the touch and swipe controls in this game compare to Blood & Glory?

I like fighting games but the reviews don't seem too promising. Won't buy. Looks like a bad imitation of bruce lee dragon warrior.
