Samurai Gunn is a 2D action video game developed by Beau Blyth and Doseone and originally published by Maxistentialism (though it is currently being self-published). The game was released for Microsoft Windows in 2013, OS X in 2015, and a planned PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita version were announced but never released due to creator Beau Blyth working on Hyper Light Drifter. A sequel, Samurai Gunn 2, was released in early access via Steam on 20 July 2021, and is currently in development for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 5.
In Samurai Gunn, players control a samurai armed with a sword and a gun. The goal of the game is to defeat the other players by shooting them or slicing their heads off. Players can only carry three bullets at a time, so they must be careful not to waste them. Bullets can be deflected by other players with precise timing, which can be used to launch surprise attacks.
The game is played on a series of 2D platforms, and players can jump, run, and dash to move around. The platforms are often moving or dangerous, so players must be careful not to fall off or get hit by obstacles. The game is fast-paced and requires quick reflexes, as players must constantly be on the lookout for enemies and projectiles.
Samurai Gunn is a local multiplayer game that supports 2 to 4 players. The game can also be played online, but the online mode is still in beta and can be unstable at times.
Samurai Gunn has received positive reviews from critics, with praise for its fast-paced gameplay, challenging difficulty, and unique art style. The game has been compared to other fast-paced action games such as Metal Slug and Super Smash Bros.
