4.0 out of 5 stars I wish that there were more games out there like this! September 24, 2013
Turn-based strategy games have, sometimes unfairly, had a reputation in the gaming world for being games reserved for the hardest of the hardcore. Classic strategy series like Galactic Civilizations, Total War, and even the ever-enduring and popular Sid Meier's Civilization have always been intimidating for newcomers with their seemingly infinite depth and micromanagement. However, the genre hit a milestone last year with the amazing XCOM: Enemy Unknown, a deep, accessible game that satisfied both turn-based strategy veterans and newcomers alike, resulting in a game that was one of the best of its generation (see my review). While Skulls of the Shogun is a VERY different experience from XCOM: EU, it serves as yet another reminder that the TBS (turn-based strategy) genre is capable of wonderful games that anyone can play, while not needing to sacrifice any of the depth that makes the genre so beloved.

Skulls of the Shogun charms you right out of the gate. Sporting a Saturday morning cartoon aesthetic crossed with medieval Japan, you take control of General Akamoto, a great shogun who was killed in battle and has reached the afterlife. He promptly finds out that he was betrayed by one of his own men, which has stripped him of his lordly prestige, and he begins a mission of vengeance to clear his name and claim power over the netherworld. Akamoto is soon joined by various warrior infantry, archers, cavalrymen, and monks, and it is with these loyal subjects that he battles his way through the different realms of the afterlife. Each type of warrior has a specific skill set, and serves as a player-controlled unit in battle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast and Funny. October 4, 2013
By Mogwai
Verified Purchase
Overview : Fast, slick and and funny. Those are the words I'd use to describe Skulls of the Shogun. It's a lighthearted game with a great sense of humor and an awesome art style.
I've been playing with mouse and keyboard and it works very well, though I can't speak for how it would work with a controller. I've encountered no bugs in my 5+ hrs of gameplay yet. The game offers replayability by having a leaderboard for each mission with objectives to accomplish that give you a higher skull rating.
Mechanics: There are 3 main units (archer, cavalry and infantry) but they can be upgraded by eating your dead enemy's skull (which increases HP and after 3 skulls turns a unit into an Oni version with increased mobility and the ability to attack 2x). There are other units which can be acquired by haunting their shrines (The crow, fox, tanuki, and salamander monks), and the ability to summon new units, which requires resources (in this case rice paddies must be haunted). The interface is somewhat clunky at times but overall doesn't affect gameplay. The game does a great job of slowly introducing it's mechanics to you in a way that doesn't feel forced like most tutorials.
Conclusion It's a fun and fast strategy game requiring very little time investment. Definitely worth picking up if you're looking for a silly strategy game. Might not be deep enough for hardcore strategy fans though.

This game is one of many Indie games that show actual beauty and potential hidden in indie games.

It may be small but its huge with its lovely design.

It may be simple but in fact makes for some entertaining and smart gameplay.

Worth every cent, especially on sale :)
