CatfishBlues Games has just introduced a new hack-n-slash game for iOS called Zantetsuken. After trying to pronounce Zantetsuken out loud a few more times, let’s take a look at the game.
Unlike most hack-n-slash games, it isn’t just the monsters the player slashes, it’s the game environment as well. Literally everything is slashable! The game follows Ran the Kunoichi (give a go at pronouncing that one too) as she hacks through enemies with her legendary sword, Zantetsu (at least that’s one syllable less than the name of the game). The game is a platformer, so the goal is to get to the end of the level. Bonuses are hidden in the game’s environment. So not only is it possible to hack apart the levels, it’s encouraged!
The game has 50 levels in five different worlds.
Zantetsuken is 50% for the launch at $0.99. So anyone sick of the traditional hack-n-slashers need look no farther than Zantetsuken. Or, as the app description says, “Are you tired of always and only cutting fruit?”
