RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Sensei Wars Brings All The Asian Power Tomorrow

Posted on Wednesday, December 11 @ 19:04:27 Eastern by


Sensei Wars, published by 2K and developed by Cat Daddy Games, will be available for the App Store, Amazon Appstore, and Google Play tomorrow. Challenging you to protect your dojo from invading Monguls as well as other replays, it's a 3D, free-to-play, real-time strategy title with single-player, cooperative, and multiplayer modes.

Compared to other real-time strategy titles, here you will have the ability to rotate the camera freely in 3D. You'll play as an immortal Sensei warrior, who can play offensively, defensively, or as a healer depending on his style (respectively, Tiger, Tortoise, and Crane). Aiding your Sensei in battle are archers, monks, rickshaws, and samurai who can be individually upgraded, and once your central dojo is at a higher level, both invisible ninjas and flying dragons can join your fight and destroy your enemy's units with swiftness. (I asked the lead developer about whether this game was based on Chinese or Japanese lore, and the answer is that it includes both. So it's pan-Asian.)


At the same time, you'll want to build your central base by purchasing and upgrading defensive buildings with coins. This will prevent other players, as best as they can, from successfully raiding your village of resources and earning chi for the leaderboards. Of course, you can in turn attempt to raid other players out of revenge or just for dominance. Otherwise, you can join the dynamic co-operative gameplay called Dynasty where your effort can place you in a higher tier of rewards for a massive boost for coins.

Character progression doesn't require that many microtransactions either, as earning gems and experience can be easily down by completing achievements or logging into Facebook daily from the game. If you wish to spend additional money on gems, though, the rates are quite fair, the lowest being $4.99 for 550 gems. Look for Sensei Wars to arrive midnight.
