Gory 1997 shooter Shadow Warrior becomes another classic you can play on your Android phone1
Wielding a pixelated katana has never been this exhilarating!Those too young to remember Shadow Warrior are probably better off grabbing the re-imagined version from Steam on their computers, unless they are curious about retro gaming. The game's frenetic pace, labyrinthine level design, campy humor and sprite-based graphics feel absolutely nothing like modern shooters and might leave you utterly confused (as in "why are people bothering with this"). Though if you don't mind playing an authentic 1997 shooter just the way it is, you are in for so much fun! For better or worse, they don't make games like this anymore, unless it's ironic.
Shadow Warrior's Android port brings all original episodes as well as the two expansion packs that followed. It comes complete with customizable touch controls, support for external controllers, and Google Play achievement. It's a full-bloodied port, rather than a hacked-together DOS emulation or whatever that barely runs on your phone and it's a nightmare to control. The price is outstanding, too – $2.99, or just $0.99 in promo. Enjoy this gem!
