Kiai Resonance is a 2D versus fighting game for Windows.

You take part in multiplayer samurai combats where one hit off-guard is fatal, and several challenges to perfect your skills. The player can change his katana position at any time to adjust to his opponent's, creating a mind game where you have to anticipate his next attack.

The graphics are attempting to restore the simple aesthetics of traditional Japanese prints by taking some pictorial elements of its great masters, while imbuing it with violence that characterized the confrontations.

Among the available game modes are included the classic one vs. one, either alone against the AI, two on the same screen, or online, as well as various mini games to test our samurai skills.

The game supports current gamepads, and online play with ranking system.

WOW! What a nice little/big game, perfect for in between :D. AWESOME! Sword is a personal weapon ! The game is perfect like it is, sure some cosmetics would be cool, different players, but thats not what the game about. (U have a samurai and ronin character, like in feudal japan, no need for more). The game is about 1 hit kill samurai sword fight. U can attack in different positions, and counter position, or push them to distract your opponent, it become a mind game if u have a good opponent.

A tactical duel game, where you have to keep your composure because the slightest mistake is fatal. Super graphics, quick grip. Two players can play on the same keyboard, and it is possible to open private lounges with friends. Cons: only 3 decores, 2 avatars and (more challenging) you can not increase the difficulty of the AI. In addition, the game is little known, so there is no one (at the moment) on the server. In solo, this little little game will occupy you 1 hour or 2, then do a fight from time to time to kill time. But this game really takes all its splendor in multi-player. This game would win to be more known.

Kiai resonance is a 2D game, a "one-hit combat" where you will have only one chance to defeat your opponent. The highlight of the game is undoubtedly its graphic aspect, Japanese paintings literally take life in this little game. Little game, that's his problem: no content. Three different paintings, three choices of Samuraîs available and some challenges to meet, quite complicated to keep you an hour on the game, if not the desire to make the five euros invested. We still feel that the devs wanted to see a good multiplayer community, hence the many multi successes that you will never unlock because it is impossible to find players. The game is dead, and it is, at best, an excellent Flash game.

So at this Point a Haiku Would have to come, but since I can't do something like That, it just has to be without ^^ Kiai Resonance is a "samurai duel" game like Bushido Blade only in 2D which is wonderfully inspired by Japanese Painting and thus gives in Terms of graphics. eckern. This also applies to the Sound to the atmospheric and fits with every Map, so also top. The Gameplay is so you have 3 Fighting Styles between which you can switch at any time to defeat your Opponent. This requires NOT a Hit. This makes the Duels extremely exciting. In addition to the Duels (against AI or other Players), there are also various Challenges. Whether it's a Windmill to spin or cutting Up Bamboo, there's a lot to be done. Unfortunately, after a max 2h you really saw everything and that's the biggest Weakness of the Game. There may be People who wouldn't pay €5am for so little content, but I paid 2 Times 4.99s Once the release version and a little later the steam version and I had at least 10h (even wenns at team only almost 2) my Fun. To Bridge the Waiting Time for Way of the Samurai 4 (this is how long T.T wait) it is all suitable 7.5/10
