Editors’ Notes

Beautiful, stirring, inspired—words barely do justice to Lee-Kuo Chen’s surprisingly abstract take on martial-arts swordplay. Your finger becomes the blade as you learn the pattern and timing of various moves, and then battle foes whose blades (like yours) are represented by ink-painted lines. The overarching tale of a famed swordmaster sucks you in, and even at its trickiest, the swipe-based action always feels rewarding.

A Lesson in Form

It's very clear this game was designed around a touch screen, rather than fight the medium this game embraces it. Combined with the beautiful art and elegant story it makes the game a real masterpiece.

Totally Functionless

First screen of the tutorial—swipe anywhere and release... Uh-huh. That’s the beginning and the end of this game because no matter what you do you will never leave that screen. Broken software.
