Samurai Beta 21

Not a beta tester yet? Sign up now!

Vacation is over and it’s time to get moving with the beta. First out is the iOS version and the Android beta will follow soon.

The big change in this update is the match list as I’ve mentioned before.

All current online games are listed to the right. If there’s an available slot, just tap it to join. Add more slots to do a 4-vs-4, either by invite or an open slot for anyone to join. When you are invited to a match this is indicated with a flashing player icon (tap the slot to accept the invite and join the match). Additionally you can tap the match center button to join as a spectator. The match starts as soon as all players have tapped Ready.

I’ve tried to solve some networking and cheating problems as follows:

  • If you leave a match (by accident or by purpose) you can quickly rejoin by tapping your slot in the match list.
  • In case your ally would leave the match you can take to control of his/her units.
  • If the opponent team abandons the match units start taking a hit in morale and will route after 10 – 15 seconds.

There’re quite some networking stuff going behind the scenes on to keep track of all this, and I expect a lot of testing is needed to get it to run smoothly. So please report any issues you find and I’ll try to fix them as quickly as possibly.

  1. Hey Felix,

    I’ve been doing some testing and I noticed that the amount of points you earn per battle varies. Is this a bug or how is is meant to be?

  2. The new beta seems to work OK, but there are a few glitches. Two units aren’t able to move on each side. But overall the match setups will be great. Thanks.

  3. I can’t wait for the this update to be released, any idea on when it will be released?
    Keep up the outstanding work felix, still the best rts game on the ipad :)

    • There are some minor backend things I need to implement, and then some testing. And then some more testing :)

      Feel free to spread the word and recruit more beta testers (both Android and/or iOS). The more the better.

  4. Hey Felix are you going to update the sounds?
    They are kind of weird and i was hoping you could do that, it
    seemed like a small task.
    Special request here, please change the music at the beginning its pretty creepy and depressing for a game called Samurai Wars!

    thanks for listening to all of us and taking our requests into consideration!

    • Improvements to graphics, sounds and music are all on the to-do list. Maybe the next update or the one after that.

  5. Hey Felix I’ve got the beta and the sandbox thingy it replaces my Game Center and I want to get back to my normal Game Center how do I do that?

  6. Hey Felix its been a while and i was wondering if you had a date for when the new update is going to come out?


  7. Do you have an exact date for when the update is going on the appstore? I cant wait any longer!!! XD

    • Ah, foreseeing the App Store Approval Process possible is not. Clouded the future is. Next week perhaps.

      • This could be the best version so far… Just too bad more players haven’t used the beta! Fun beating the monkeys, though! Thanks
