      iSamurai: Two-Player Sword Fight released for iPhone and iPod Touch

        Toy Kite Software just introduced iSamurai: Two-Player Sword Fight, their new Wi-Fi sword fighting game for iPhone and iPod Touch. Developed specifically to take advantage of the iPhone's accelerometers and networking capabilities, iSamurai is an interactive sword-fighting game, where the two players slash, thrust, and block each other with their iPhones.

        Depending on the physical movements of the two players, slashes and thrusts are interpreted by both devices and immediately registered as successful or blocked. When a player swings and his/her opponent blocks by holding up another iPhone, the ring of steel on steel is heard from both devices. An unsuccessful block results in the defender's iPhone emitting one of a number of cries to indicate a hit. Toy Kite has posted videos on its web site (as well as on YouTube) demonstrating the game in action. A training "Dojo" is offered so players can practice the different iSamurai moves.

        Advanced analysis allows the iPhone to distinguish between four different attacks. Each attack can be countered by the opponent using the correct block. The two devices communicate their actions and countering actions to each other over Wi-Fi in real time and use realistic sounds to indicate whether an attack was successful or blocked. After the battle, both devices report the scores with appropriate images for the winner and loser.

        iSamurai includes a single-player mode with four levels of difficulty. Four unique characters: peasant, apprentice, warrior and samurai, yell out different attacks, and the player must quickly defend against them and launch offensive attacks by swinging the iPhone. To get players started, iSamurai has a tutorial featuring animations of the different attacks. The game also includes quotes from The Art of War by Sun Tzu and from The Book of Five Rings by samurai Miyamoto Musashi.

        iSamurai: Two-Player Sword Fight includes the following features:

        * Two-player interactive Wi-Fi game using two iPhones or iPod Touches
        * Single-player game with four levels of difficulty
        * Tutorial featuring animations of the different attacks
        * Training "Dojo" where the player can practice the different iSamurai moves
        * Art of War quotes from legendary warriors

        System Requirements:
        * iPhone or iPod Touch 2.2.1 or later

        Pricing and Availability:
        iSamurai: Two-Player Sword Fight for iPhone is $2.99 (USD) and is available through Apple's iTunes Store. For a limited time, iSamurai will be on sale for $.99 (USD).
