    Katana Kami is a must-play for roguelike fans. The game loop of earning money by day and fighting monsters by night creates a fantastic gameplay experience. Still, there are some features that could use some clarity and confusing menus do more harm than good to its accessibility.

    You’re not going to blown away by Katana Kami: A Way of the Samurai Story. Don’t expect it to amaze you in any way. It is, however, a very enjoyable dungeon crawler that’s very easy to sink time into. Developing powerful swords and using them to get further into a cavernous dungeon is as engrossing as you’d expect it to be. And the fact that those swords could be lost at any moment should you suffer defeat adds tension. This isn’t the Way of the Samurai experience you’re probably used to, but it’s just as entertaining nonetheless.

    I'm only a few hours in at the moment so will update with a proper review later on but for now I would definitely say stay away, looksI'm only a few hours in at the moment so will update with a proper review later on but for now I would definitely say stay away, looks absolutely awful and the gameplay is very bland, hefty price tag which doesn't help. Maybe they may patch it but it feels and looks like a cheap mobile game in current state. Expand
