Followers of Genndy Tartakovsky’s “Samurai Jack,” which wrapped final yr on the Cartoon Community, benefit from the quirky storytelling and gorgeous visuals, additionally the martial arts sequences. Naturally, it was solely a matter of time earlier than the net gaming business turned the time-traveling samurai’s adventures into video video games.
I have never tried any of the video games out there for gaming console methods, confining my efforts as a substitute to Cartoon Community’s personal Net Website. Its Video games part options six video games primarily based on “Samurai Jack,” together with “The Manner of the Warrior,” during which the younger samurai trains by a number of simulations for his eventual battle with the shape-shifting evil sorcerer Aku (deliciously voiced by veteran actor Mako within the collection and console video games).
The opposite video games invariably function Jack battling Aku’s minions–robots, beetle bugs, and the like. Two of the video games function a closing showdown with Aku.
“Code of the Samurai” was a tie-in with a Samurai Jack marathon, so once you entry the sport, the interface asks you “Enter Code or Play.” I counsel pushing Play because the unique marathon was two years in the past.
When you get into the sport, you need to struggle by three treacherous ranges earlier than you even get to Aku.
The primary stage options crumbling ledges, motorized spikes, machine-gun hearth as you experience rock lifts up mountains, and naturally, the inevitable baddies ready to assault you. Tip: When using the rock lifts, duck and soar to keep away from the machine gun hearth. Seize the chance when the second carry descends or ascends near the carry you are on, in any other case you will should keep away from the gunfire till the carry comes again inside attain. The extent options two carry challenges, all with a computerized attacker ready on the high of the cliff.
The creatures on all three ranges are adversaries that followers of “Samurai Jack” will acknowledge: zombie warriors, Terminator-style robots who appear to be they’ve baskets on their heads, and Aku’s minions that flip into vapor once you assault them.
Tip: Attempt every time potential to hit the targets with a very good fast thrust of Jack’s katana. The sport says different weapons can be found to Jack, however for some motive you solely see him use his katana. Go gradual and time your assaults in order that the targets cannot hit you first.
Jack will get 5 “lives,” and you’ll see the pink meter slowly shrink as he’s bombarded with digital mayhem. Attempt to not less than maintain on to the fourth “life” when attending to the second stage. After you clear every stage the “life” you are at the moment on is replenished (Jack should have been consuming his trademark inexperienced tea.) If you get to the third stage, attempt to maintain not less than three “lives,” though you may get away with two. You want not less than two to have an opportunity throughout the closing skirmish with Aku.
On the finish of the primary two ranges you do battle with a large adversary extra highly effective than the others: a skeleton warrior on the primary, a basket-head warrior on the second. The excellent news is you may watch its “life” meter and observe your progress on defeating it.
The second stage is crammed with gears operating amuck to mow you down, blades slashing at you, and on all three ranges you run the chance of falling in slime or on sharp spikes, which make you lose a life. Tip: Time your jumps to keep away from the gears, however do not get too jumpy, in any other case you fall into the slime.
The third stage options spikes, shifting platforms and even wider jumps, if that is potential. Tip: The vapor demons can seem anyplace and are extra poweerful than the adversaries within the first two ranges. However this exercise is simply apply, flexing your muscle groups for the conflict with Aku.
The ultimate stage options ledges that sink into lava–you have to leap quick earlier than you fall in. The computerized Aku is sort of spectacular, and simply as within the collection, flies off a number of instances earlier than Jack can ship the ultimate blow. However be courageous, be steadfast, be victorious, and also you, gamer, will defeat the evil scourge! The conclusion to the sport is satisfying and delivers the anticipated emotional payoff.
