App description: Sumo Master brings you the World Series of sumo wrestling, a spectacular, high intensity sumo cage match.

The art of sumo wrestling is a centuries old Japanese tradition of endurance, strength, and over eating. Time for a shake up!

Sumos of all shapes and sizes compete to become the Sumo Master, from the small and nimble 'ninjas' to the enormous bulldozer-like monsters who clear everything in their path. No sumo is spared in the international melting pot of Sumo Master.

High voltage pillars add to the spectacle, moving across the arena, and catapult unsuspecting competitors somewhere between here and oblivion. Other, more crafty contestants, use them to gain a strategic advantage over heavier opponents, trapping them with no place to go.

Choose your own sumo character, and guide it through the six divisions of competition to gain the title of Sumo Master. A gigantic, American cowboy or a fierce African warrior Sumo Master is truly the World Series of sumo wrestling.

Play on the weaknesses of others, and accentuate the skills of your own sumo. Use your speed against bigger opponents to gain a strategic advantage, or barge your way through smaller opponents with brute force, pushing them over the edge to a gruesome end.

Sumo Master is a modern twist on an ancient sport. It'll leave you grunting for more!

FEATURES
Choose from four different sumo characters
Combat up to 5 opponents at once
Challenge friends in one-on-one multiplayer bouts
Atmospheric music and amusing sumo sound effects
Touch control designed specially for iPhone
Moving pillars add to the challenge
Complete all 6 divisions to become a Sumo Master

Weird game. Not feeling like I really play it. Looks like coincidence to me if I win or not. And has performance issues on my old 1st gen iPhone

Sorry, I really wanted to like this game as I was reading article about how it was made before. But something is missing in the game to be fun.. very polished tho!

It seems a bit random but there is some strategy involved. You have to keep pusing the opponent in the right direction to make sure he doesn't go sideways and get back at you. Also whoever is pushing will keep on pushing until you get a rebound from the corner pads. You have to get a bit away from the opponent and then start from a distance to make sue you are the one pusing and not get pushed instead.

But yes I do agree the gameplay is a bit lacking and it's a bit hard to control your player. But then again the game is free for today and is well worth a try coz of that reason alone

Agree, there's also that one use powerup that's kinda neat too. Haven't gotten far into but I imagine some strategy will need to come into play.
