Dead Samurai is a amazing intuitive fighting game. From the same creator as the fun western gunslinger: Gunblood.
Now take the role of a brave Samurai that must survive nine battles against dangerous opponents. Continue to fight even after having your an arm or leg chopped off. Fight until you can fight no more. TO the death, the samurai way.
A combination of the best 2D arcade fighting games: Mortal Kombat, Killer Instinct, Time Killers, Samurai Shodown, and Street Fighter.
Your objective is to win all duels to become the best swordsman.
Different moves are performed based on what stance the samurai is in. Movement (walk, run, jump, duck) of the samurai also determines the type of attack. Combos can be performed by combining various strikes from different stances.

Three bonus rounds to collect extra lives, shurikens, and shotgun ammo. Collect 5 red balloons for an extra life. Collect 15 yellow balloons to unlock the shotgun.
