Katanakami Torrent takes us to the alternative version of feudal Japan. The game tells the story of a blacksmith living near a pine gate to another world. When the man was unable to pay off his debts, his daughter was kidnapped. Unexpectedly, a stranger samurai turned to him for help. As the latter play the role of fun, our task is to collect money and buy a girl, which requires hard work in the workshop and make a dangerous journey to the underworld.
In Katanakami Full Version, the action is shown in an isometric view. The game has a daily cycle that directly affects the game. Under the cover of night, we visit procedural dungeons that stretch in the afterlife, where we face hordes of enemies, acquire increasingly better katanas, and acquire raw materials necessary to craft more powerful weapons and improve existing ones. During clashes with adversaries, you need to show dexterity and reflexes to effectively block enemy attacks and launch instant counterattacks; besides, the weapons we wield at the moment affect our fighting style.
During the day, however, we help a blacksmith in his workshop, constructing katanas and selling them at a profit. Our main clientele are representatives of three feuding factions (Akadama clan, Kurou family and the city of Post Town), whose conflict is taking place in the background.
The graphic design of the game Katanakami Download presents a decent level of performance. The protagonist moves in a characteristic way, and the locations we visit, as well as the demons and monsters we fight with, are inspired by Japanese folklore.
