“Samurai Gunn is a smoking gun, a blood-stained sword, the quick feet of a trained warrior out to kill. It’s a local multiplayer survival game that feels lush in its violence. I love it. I’m a slave to hitting replay.”

Worth every penny. Very easy to spend hours slaughtering each other. The game is also deceptively deep, for how simple it looks.

The developer's attention to detail is also very apparent. Fun example: when you die in a pool of water, watch it stain red with blood for a short while.

Honestly a great game to bring to a party. If you have 4 controllers and a big screen this can seriously be a fun way to spend time. The action is fast, the controls feel amazing and on point.

Super underrated game.

One of the best couch duel games. Simple, good controls. The arenas affect every match and provide variety.

The only couch arena combat game that just works.
You go "Hey, I wish there was a game that was simple but really engaging, with finesse but not a lot of rules that you have to learn."

So you look at Nidhogg and you run into the issue where your one friend just always beats you for some reason because he rolls around like a jerk.
So you look at Towerfall Ascension and you're dealing with upgrades and stuff and you don't wanna deal with that.
So you look at Dive Kick and you and your friend are just randomly hitting Dive and Kick until someone dies.
So you look at Gang Beasts and it's ptretty great but really sloppy and you're tired of it after 30 minutes and your hands hurt.
So you think about a normal fighting game and realize the only PC fighting game is Mortal Kombat Street Fighter and you aren't about to look up special moves.

Samurai Gunn is to these couch combat games like Cards Against Humanity is to card games, you learn the rules in 30 seconds and everyone with half-descent reaction times is having fun at about the same level. It's fast but controllable. It's sternly competative but always fun. It's simple but flexible. It's a game that you'd try to emulate if you were sent back in time 25 years and had to make a living by becoming a time-travelling game developer when you've already pitched Threes, Lumines, and Geometry Wars to 90s game studios and become a millionaire.

The most underrated... This game is an incredibly intense couch competitive. The single player is lacking to say the least (it's mostly a series of challenges), but if you can find 1 other person willing to come over and play this game is worth it. Here's hoping for Samurai Gunn tournaments in the near future!

An absolute blast for quick couch multiplayer sessions. Very much recommended.
A controller with a decent D-pad is a requirement, IMHO. Controls are very tight, but hinge entirely on the quality of your controller.

100% Recommend this if you have gamepads (i'm using PS3's w/ MotionJoy on XBOX setting works perfect), HDMI cable, 3+ friends, and plenty of beer. This is my new party game, and I can see it hanging around for a long time.

Even of you have no friends and can't drink beer, it is worth it for the survival mode alone.

So much fun, but two major flaws: for a 15 dollar game, there just isn't really enough. It's AMAZING fun, don't get me wrong, but there's only so much you can do with two modes, the second of which at first glance isn't heavily different from the other (Versus and Survival). My other problem is that there's just not clear communication with some parts of the game - sometimes you'll win even if you have less than 10 kills, or a showdown will end and nothing will happen.

It's extremely solid as a game and I commend the focus on no-online cause it really does shine on couch versus, but there just isn't enough in this for a full price recommendation in my eyes.

Way too expensive for the little content it has and has been pretty much abandoned by the dev. He published only one patch since the game was released and is now working on a different game.

It's got really good gameplay but is not feature-complete. Here's a list of the stuff that should be in the game but somehow isn't:
- replays
- tournament mode in which you choose how many matches you want to play and the winner will be the one who wins the most. There could be some stats shown between each match. You could choose which levels you want to play or have the game randomise them.
- any match modifiers such as timed matches, no guns, no super jumps, etc.
- any kind of stats that carry over the matches
- unlockables/secrets
- an option to base spawning on the proximity of the enemy, so that you won't spawn near players and be able to instakill them just because you got lucky.

I can't recommend getting the game at it's basic price. It's really fun and has a great soundtrack but at the same time it feels like an early beta at this point. Wait for a sale (UPDATE: the dev didn't even bother putting it on Summer Sale). And get Towerfall Ascension in the meantime if you're looking for a good couch deathmatch game. It's a bit slower in terms of gameplay but at the same time it's superior in pretty much every way and is still getting new content and updates.

Playing Samurai Gunn for the first time may be the most fun I've had playing a multiplayer game. There's almost no learning curve at all and then it's just non-stop action, drama, conniving strategies, and a lot of yelling. The controls are simple to start out with, but open up to more complex gameplay as the subtle specifics of the mechanics reveal themselves. This game is hilarious and heart-pounding; one moment we were cracking up at the absurdity of it all, and the next we were literally on the edge of our seats. Only one of the three friends I played with would probably consider themselves a gamer, but we all enjoyed it equally. This game is for everyone.

Game is full of mystical sun honor. Its soul is essence of fun. True friendship is tested and turned into furious competitive rivalry. Death is waiting in every moment of space time continuum. Mind and body join in ultimate battle. Focus is key. Sluggishness shall be punished. Senses must be sharp like ancient watercrystal dragon blade of life. See bullet before bullet sees you. Don´t use weapon, become weapon. There is only forward. Free yourself from weakness. Clashing souls reveal truth. Freedom transcends eternity.
Wise master once said: "Have no fear, for all is one with universe"

Go.

Silly competitive fighting game similar to that of say Towerfall. The pixel art style and movement is great. Definitely worth picking up if you usually have 3 friends hanging out and you all feel like battling.

Amazing multiplayer game. Sit down with a few friends and enjoy some great combat. Also has single player survival. 100% recommend a controller. Deceptively simple. Once you figure everything out, the versatility of the game opens up. Very tight controls.

Best party game ever! Friends of mine who are reluctant of retro games were blown away. He who dons the ninja's mask is forever apart. He leads a life of rigorous training, intense concentration, and danger.
