http://www.downloadsquad.com – Filed under: Fun, Games, Time-Wasters Straw Hat Samurai 2 is, unsurprisingly, a sequel -- and like all good sequels there's MORE of everything. More slashing! More slicing! More hopping around like a crazed, oriental lunatic -- more samurai-ing -- and in this case, that's a good thing. Because this is a beat 'em up Flash game -- quite a skilful one, but still! There's a lotta killing. in Straw Hat Samurai 2 you rush horizontally into oncoming foes (other samurai, I think, or Vietcong, I don't know) and repeatedly slice them up into small pieces. The primary game mechanic is something I've never seen before though: mouse gestures! To attack, you paint a 'slash' over the enemy. An upwards slash sends them flying, while a downwards slash on a fallen enemy performs a coup de grace. There's even the requisite 'bullet time' mode where you can slash up everyone on the screen without fear of reprisal. Don't worry if it all sounds a little complicated: there's a great tutorial that leads you through the first few minutes of the game. Go and slash 'em up!Samurai slice-and-slash-and-dash Time Waster originally appeared on Download Squad on Mon, 15 Feb 2010 12:06:00 EST.
