Way Of The Samurai is a fun game of drawing lines with the finger to slash through your enemies and defeat the evil lord. In this game you are a samurai who will use both the Katana and the bow to kill enemies, take out towers, and accomplish your mission. The main game depends on how fast you are with the finger at drawing but there are some general tips that you should know about this game. In particular, how to avoid damage in the later levels. The trick is to keep your lines as precise as possible. I would also try to see as many enemies as possible before you make a strike.

Happy Fighting!

This is a thoroughly pointless "game" -- really an advertising for the console version.

Edit: I'm speaking about Way of the Samurai 3 game, which is free. I can't find the Way of the Samurai described here -- please post a link.

I was totally confused...I thought someone had started a new thread about Samurai - Way of the Warrior.

Yeah, and I thought it was about that crappy "Way of the Samurai 3" free "game." I tried this one, and it's okay: a samurai themed Draw Slasher with more gameplay variety but less smooth graphics. Didn't grab me, even though I love the theme.

Exactly the same -- except that Way of the Samurai has the bow from SHS 3 and no map.

Oh, my, GOSH!, I dont believe this actually came to the appstore!

All of you people who complain about repetitive gameplay, you can keep on moving along.
Its pointless to complain about repetitive gameplay for any game.

But for me, this is a MUST get game!

This game has only been out for a week and there is already an update that has gone through Apples Approval Process!

Update v1.01 - Whats New:

- Improved Performance and Various Bug Fixes

Unfortunately, I cant say that even with the update that this game is worth getting, yet.

It doesnt capture the essence of the original game and needs a few things added to it for it to be a real contender.

Right now, stick with Draw Slasher! But hopefully in the future, this will be one of the greats!

And anyone notice that the Appinfo has screenshots for Kung-Fu in it! Just wondering. Ha
