Shadow Blade is an action-platformer set in a visually striking world where the ancient teachings of ninjas and samurai clash upon a modern landscape. Sprint through stages littered with traps, slaying enemies along your path without hesitation as Kuro, the blade of shadow!


Darkness and chaos are once again creeping into the world of man. The covenant made in a time almost forgotten has failed, the three clans now in a violent struggle for dominance. The medallion is almost made whole again and it falls upon Kuro's shoulders to restore balance. All his training has led up to this one moment, where the fate of the world will rest in his blood-stained hands.

Editors’ Notes

Screen-searing graphics, great controls, white-knuckle action—Shadow Blade: Reload boasts all the ingredients for ninja-game magic. Its side-scrolling gameplay deftly blends wall-jumping acrobatics and sword-swinging combat, while motion-comic interludes lay out a sizzling story. And once you’ve mastered the campaign, you can prove your skills in a challenge mode aimed at the fiercest of warriors.

Worth $ of my favs!

I love the old school feel, graphics, and gameplay. The controls are too close together. The longer boards are nice. I was so glad to see a sequel to Shadow Blade. Keep them coming! Hopefully, the bugs others have written about will be fixed. I have not had any issues yet.

Beware of shady business with developer and Apple. Does not work on newer devices.

I never write reviews really but can’t help it this time. It’ll be worth it if it saves even one person the frustration. Bottom line I believe this is a really cool game. It’s fun and has really nice graphics and art style in my opinion. It’s just that it would be great if it actually worked on newer devices. I have 13 Pro Max and it’s basically unplayable. It freezes and glitches BADLY. You may get lucky for one round just to find it keeps happening over and over again. 90% of the time it’s straight up unplayable. What’s more is that it doesn’t fill the entire screen, it’s 16x9 and hard to see and the notification/status bar (time network status and battery level) don’t ever disappear.
I can understand if it simply isn’t profitable for the developer to update the app for modern devices but the bare minimum right thing to do would be to add a disclaimer in the description stating that. Simple really. But then they would squeeze out as many dollars as possible regardless of the dishonesty. Adding insult to injury, Apple denied my refund request even though I immediately uninstalled it and submitted a refund request with 24 hours. “My request “did not meet the conditions for a refund.” If a broken app doesn’t meet the conditions, what will? Do your research before to buy old apps. I learned the frustrating way. Apple will gladly sell you duds and bold face deny refund. Shame.
