App description: Ninja. Monkey. Action.

Edo Superstar is an action-packed beat-em-up set in old Japan, featuring a colorful cast of animal characters. Guide Masaru, an energetic monkey with lofty ambitions to be the most popular fighter in the land, as he battles his way to Edo City and competes in the prestigious Zodiac Tournament.

Along the way our hero sharpens his skill and avoids his former ninja clan who hunt him for forsaking their order in his pursuit of fame.

Players control Masaru using a gesture-based control scheme that uses intuitive swipes and taps instead of cluttering the screen with virtual buttons. Slide under punches, uppercut massive foes in slow motion, parry incoming attacks, string together epic combos, and unlock even more abilities along the way.

As Masaru defeats his enemies, his fame rises allowing our hero to increase his strength, defense, speed and special stats. Money collected from bested foes can purchase special items, like stat altering amulets, giving our hero an even greater edge in combat. Performing well in a level will also yield special stars, which upgrades Masarus equipment.

Just played a bit, the game is really good but the control shenma is a bit weird and it's hard getting used to it. I would have prefer a pad with buttons but I guess I'll have to get used to it.

Swipe to move, tap to attack. It's a bit hard as moving and attacking at the same time is difficult, I'm not too sure what to think of it, it's good but, so 4 stars for me. It could be better but it's definitely fun even tho it isn't perfect.
