Samurai 2 sale

The makers of the beloved dead trigger games.... Have the samurai 2 vengeance game at 99 cents.

Is it worth it for iPod touch 4? Dead trigger stopped working after the last couple of updates.

Whoa. I've actually never heard about this, but those graphics look pretty cool. Does anyone know if the gameplay is any fun? Graphics are one thing, but I'm more about gameplay. I'd rather have a game with okay graphics and awesome mechanics over a game with beautiful graphics and crappy play.

This one's very much worth buying, and yes, it's great on my iPod touch 4. I can't imagine anyone not liking this.

The game's pretty fun. Think Shadowgun (not deadzone)... It's basically somewhat lacking in mechanics, but everything that's in it is just executed perfectly from controls to gameplay.

Wasn't people complaining that it didn't run at 60 fps as it says it does? Dunno if a update fixed it or not but was curious.

Runs with a really high framerate on my ipad 3, I think it was running really well on my iphone 4 too even though I don't have it on that so I can't check.

I don't have a touch, so don't really know about that.

Can someone compare this with the original? I lost it because it was on the account I shared w/an ex and had to shut down, but I really enjoyed it.

Thing is, what made it stand out besides the graphics were the swipe controls. Without them, I figure it's just another hack+slash.

I don't have the first game, but the controls in this game are tight. Plus they have a moveable controls option which I love. But it is like any hack and slash, gets a little repetitive after a while. But this one has some awesome graphics, and very smooth framerates which is true of Madfinger games in general.
