What is this Teatime Samurai thing you've been hearing all about, anyway?
Teatime Samurai! is a twin stick shooter created by Ben Ehrlich. The game takes place in ancient Japan in that dangerous period when zombies roamed the countryside and giant feet owned the skies.
You, a student of the great martial arts teacher Nashi have been invited back to his dojo for tea, but when you get there the place is swarming with nasties.
The goal of Teatime Samurai! is to use the fireballs from your lantern to kill as many bad guys as possible. Easy enough. The catch is that every time you shoot, your lantern loses a little oil and your field of view gets smaller. Maintaining enough oil to see and attack is a constant balancing act, and is awfully fun.
If you're good enough, you can secure yourself a spot on the venerable HIGH SCORE BOARD. The biggest reward though, is having some nice tea with Nashi.
Teatime Samurai! is available for iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac (and other platforms much later). Oh yeah, and did I mention that it's four-player for Windows and Mac?
The game is available free on Android and iOS and pay-what-you-want on Windows and Mac.
