Shadow Blade offers 40 levels, full of platforming challenges and enemies waiting to battle the ninja-protagonist. The game boasts detailed and fluid graphics, although it's not rendered in 3D. It's also styled after the violence and corny storylines of old Asian cinema, while its gameplay is similar to classics such as Castlevania and Shinobi. These elements combined sound like a recipe for sword-swinging-blood-splashing fun.
Shadow Blade will cost $1.99 when it reaches the App Store.
