Habe schon länger so ein Game gesucht. Hatte es aufgegeben und nun durch Zufall Skulls of the Shogun gefunden.
Pure Rundenbasierte Strategie-Kämpfe ohne RPG-Zeug zwischendurch. Macht einen riesen Spass. :)

Wer auf sehr taktische rundenbasierte Kämpfe und Zombies steht sollte sich dieses Spiel unbedingt ansehen. Der Untotenhumor ist einfach genial und der Schwierigkeitsgrad gerade in den späteren Leveln ist durchaus fordernd. Eine klare Empfehlung!

Simple and fun strategy game. The humor can be a little hit and miss, but all in all I had a really good time while playing it. It outstays it's welcome just a tiny, little bit towards the end, because the strategy elements are really simple and gets somewhat repetitive because of that, but the game is saved by its best humor bits and the relatively short time you have to set aside to beat it. Definitely worth the asking price. Recommended.

Definetly recommended.

Pros:
- Funny
- Challenging
- Original gameplay. Not a typical 'grid'-like turn based game.
- Originel setting. You're a dead shogun samurai.
- Nicelly balanced units & actions: sometimes you have to choose between eating a skull to heal, haunting a shrine to summon extra units or just try to whack an enemy unit over a ledge. So lots of possibilities & different outcomes to each game.

Cons:
- None, really. Besides that one level seems ridiculously hard. But there's always the possibility to lower the difficulty to 'casual'

The heartfelt struggle of one man, trying to reach out to the world and only finding rejection. Falling deeper and deeper into depression.

Oh wait that is just Jesse trying to get us to play this game, my bad.

A really amazing turn-based strategy game that removed the grid/hex system to be more dynamic and fluid! The campaign along is well worth the full price! I can't recommend it enough to Turn-based strategy fans!!

Pros:
+great gameplay mechanics +the story and dialogues are very funny +great visual +controller support
+multiplayer and challenges

Cons:
- occasionally, the manual will disappear upon taking a screenshot; a restart can fix the problem

Good game with great graphics and a fantastic style utterly spoiled by ridiculous and thoroughly annoying controls/interface. It should be a crime to port games from mobile to pc without properly sitting down and working out a new control scheme that works well for the PC.

It's the closest thing to advance wars you can get on steam or any modern console for that matter. Also you power up by eating the skulls of your enemies. ♥♥♥♥ is ♥♥♥♥ing metal.

Aw, this game is so charming! It got my great-great-grandmother into playing TBS. She also bought a Samurai sword to re-enact battle scenes.

After playing through the full (post early access) release, the verdict is in and I can confidently say that Skulls of the Shogun is a winner. This quirky turn-based strategy game seems simple at first, but there are actually some surprisingly deep levels of nuance and complexity beneath the surface. You play as a Japanese swordsman General who is trying to reclaim his stolen identity in the afterlife. The art style is very unique and really well done. The cast of characters and story are also very cool. The dialogue, in particular, is a highlight. I wasn't expecting much from that aspect of a seemingly simple strategy game, but I was pleasantly surprised at how funny and entertaining it was.

So the aesthetic portions of the game are definitely good, but what of the actual gameplay, you ask? In short, it's pretty damn good. Gameplay is turn based, but on each turn you have 5 "orders" that can be performed. Your team is comprised of various types of units (warriors, cavalry, archers), each of which has their own strengths and weaknesses. Instead of moving on tiles like other strategy games, the actions in this game are more free-roaming. Units are able to move anywhere they want, within a certain radius, and are also able to continue moving after performing an action, which adds to the level of strategy involved. One of your main goals is to eat the skulls of defeated opponents, which restores health. However, if a unit is able to eat 3 skulls, they transform into a Demon, which enables them to perform 2 actions per turn, which is a huge advantage. Gameplay becomes a delicate balancing act of attacking, positioning and staying alive long enough to power up.

Outside of these main elements, there are a number of other nuances (summoning monks with special powers, forming spirit walls, environmental hazards, deciding when to bring your general into battle, and more) that add many layers of complexity to the basic strategy. Every level seems to provide some new elements to learn or deal with, and this keeps the main campaign fresh from start to finish. There's no padding at all. The main campaign lasts several hours (more if you play on a higher difficulty or attempt to complete the set of special goals for each level) and is worth the price of admission alone. In addition, the game also features online, local and asynchronous multiplayer matches. So there is plenty of content here for both casual and competitive types.

All in all, this game is solid and brings some really cool twists to the turn-based strategy genre. If you are into that type of thing, pick this one up. And if not, well, this could be the game that makes you a fan. Check it out.

Skulls of Shogun is a surprisingly great game of 2013 for me. With the rise in popularity of Turn Based Strategy (TBS) games, It can be difficult for Skulls of Shogun to stood out among the other quality TBS games such as XCOM, Civilization V, and so on.

Still, with its quirky art style and fairly witty humor that is set in Samurai's afterlife, Skulls of Shogun features a well designed and carefully balanced mechanics, I find Skulls of Shogun to be very enjoyable game to play. At the same time, the game tries to introduce a gridless movement system where your unit's movement range is denoted by a white circle with a fixed radius, I find this innovation to a decent change that works well to be an alternative to the typical grid system found in a lot of TBS games. Combining with the cross platform compatibility with iOS, one could even play this game on the go. While Skulls of Shogun looks like a mobile port, it felt more like a PC game with reasonable amount of depth despite having a rather small unit roster. Each unit has its own unique role that can be useful in the right hands. Personally, I find the PC version's UI to be pretty decent and mouse friendly while it is equally playable on a touch screen.

If you like Turn Based Strategy, give Skulls of Shogun a go if you have the chance. You could find yourself putting a couple of hours into this indie gem.
