The traditional Japanese mounted archery "Yabusame" has been reborn as a major action game!

Play through the adventures of "legendary" child samurai Nasu Santaro, who arrows were said to be able to reach the moon even as a baby!

Gallop through a huge world trying to rescue the princess from the clutches of the evil Onmyoji!

In this new type of horizontal scrolling action game, tap to shoot an arrow, and flick to make your horse jump, aiming for the goal!

Using your device's capabilities to its fullest, and with a system that allows single finger play, you can adventure through a huge world with its own special style and beautifully crafted graphics.

And did we mention the crazy boss battles?

A dragon running wild... Monster birds dancing through the sky... And an evil god sealed away... Can you escape certain death from the vicious evil that comes to attack you?

You'll have a blast playing this major action game that goes beyond your average smart phone game; it's the real deal!

*Explanation of Yabusame
This ceremonial art is part of Japan's cultural heritage. While galloping on horseback, arrows are shot at targets. It is one of the primary disciplines for samurai.

*SAMURAI SANTARO has been optimized for the latest devices. You can play with the best graphical resolution on an iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPad Air, or iPadmini Retina.

*With the free version of "SAMURAI SANTARO" ads will be displayed. Everything else is exactly the same.

Awesome game

An awesome game. Really cool graphics. Awesome gameplay. Cool bosses. Overall a really good way to pass the time. The gaming experience could be improved a bit if Prope could move the powers from the right side of the screen to the left and instead of having them lined up in a horizontal line you could try stacking them vertically. I would think that would be the best way for most gamers. Good work Prope.

Great Runner!

I normally can't get into endless runner style games (although this one isn't endless) but there is something about this game that makes it fun to me. The art is fantastic ,the controls are simple and the gameplay is fluid and fun. Not sure what other ingredients you need for a good clean fun iOS game. Nice job Devs!



This is a cool game. Good time burner and also the graphics are not bad at all! The music is great and has an old school ps2 feel to it. The background and color is amazing 5 stars it would be cool to free roam or have like a shadow of the colossus deal? But great game! Recommend you to at least give a try!
