Immerse yourself in an ancient Japanese setting and discover Onitama, an exciting, fast-paced strategy game! Onitama is somewhat reminiscent of chess and rather addictive with its dynamic game mechanic in which warriors face off so their master may win the game. Concentration and luck are the only weapons you'll have at your disposal! You'll need to fully master mind and body to defeat your opponents.<br><br>THINK STRATEGY! <br>Every opponent has four warriors and one elder at their disposal. The objective is simple: win the battle. To do so, you must either capture your opponent's elder or take their place in the temple arch. The game is easy to play, but you'll need time to become a true master. Although, not really... Onitama is the ideal strategy game for exercising your mind, as you'll have to think ahead about moves! The moves you're allowed to make are determined by five cards which are drawn at random, shown face-up, and shared between players. Each card corresponds to an animal and sets out a specific move that you have to follow. When you play a card, you must place it between you and your opponent and pick up the previously played card, and so on. This way, both players have the exact same chance of winning the game.<br><br>IT'S ALL ABOUT ANALYSIS… <br>The key to success in this simple, elegant type of combat is to stay calm and concentrate. The Shrine of Onitama is a sacred ground where foresight is necessary. Animal spirits will guide you on the perilous path and allow you to gain true wisdom. In short, it's an elegant and simple game that captures the essence of martial arts. The game design and calligraphy will make your gaming experience a unique and unforgettable one. <br><br>PLAY ON YOUR OWN OR WITH OTHERS<br>Play against the computer on your own, or against your friends.

This game is really solid, and I’ve been recommending it to people since I downloaded it (this morning). That’s a HUGE deal for me, because I am generally not a mobile gamer at all. I love this game.. In an effort to increase my skills in combat (hehe.), I began with solo play in the beginner’s difficulty to farmiliarize myself with the flow of battle. Needless to say once I was able to beat the easiest AI opponent a handful of times I would move on to the next difficulty level. On that difficulty level, after playing a few rounds, the game began freezing in the middle of my moves—conveniently, when it seemed that I was well on the way to victory (-.-‘). Nonetheless, i decided to google the issue to see if that was it. So far, I’ve seen that problem on a couple forums as well, and it appears to have been happening as early as September. Super solid game. But if you want that full 5 stars, please address this issue. I will definitely buy the add-ons if you can make this work. What would persuade me even further to throw my money at you is if you make a way to invite friends to play via iOS’s incredible share feature rather than your in-game link elements. A friends system inside of the game would be an even bigger plus. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.

First, Onitama is a wonderful game. For those who do not know the board game, it’s a very simple game that’s easy to learn. That doesn’t mean it’s easy to win! Players take turns making simple moves as described by cards. After a move, that card goes to your opponent. Each player has 2 cards they can play at any time plus a third that they can see coming for their next turn. The app handles gameplay very well with smooth animations and a pleasant aesthetic. The app has frozen a couple of times and the record keeping in the app seems not to be working yet. Numbers like ranking, record and karma (which basically makes sure you don’t abandon games) don’t appear on the profile screen like they should. Games are quick though the shortest time you can select if you make a game is 15min for each player. They should make versions that are even shorter as most games take about 5-10 minutes total. There is huge potential here for this to be one of my favorite apps of all time since Onitama is brilliant. I hope the devs still with it and keep making the improvements necessary. If they show the commitment to the app, I will buy the reasonably priced add-ons (just a couple bucks)

Onitama is a great game, and this is a wonderful free app with beautiful visuals. I recommend everybody go out and buy the physical board game, it’s easy to pick up which means it’s easy to convince friends to play, even if they don’t typically like board games. However, playing the computer is a little too easy in this game, it seems the AI lacks a certain level of predictive foresight. When I started playing, I set the computer to the hardest difficulty (there are only 3 difficulties), and I won by way of the stone in 4 moves because the AI blundered away its king. The issue seems to be that the AI planned its move based on the cards I had in my hand the previous move, not the card I was going to have in my next move - it captured a piece with the king, even though the piece was defended with a rabbit card I had just received. While I haven’t played enough games to determine how often the AI blunders like this, blundering into check on the highest difficulty just shouldn’t happen! I’d recommend this app if you intend to play it with friends long distance or on car rides, otherwise I’d recommend just getting the board game itself. Don’t get it to play against the computer!

This is a sweet game! But there is definitely a lot to be improved upon. The UI in general reminds me of first versions of the Settlers of Catan IOS app. Just sort of jenky. Things like being locked into a 30 second timer for a rematch even though the other player has accepted. OR the other player rejected rematch but because you decided to opt in....still trapped in waiting. Also 20 games in order to start progress in ranked matches isn't really all that "gripping". I think if there was a sense of progression in rank right from the get-go then more players would stick around wanting to climb higher on the ladder. One last thing…I think the devs should include a link in the shop where the skins are that leads people to buying the physical version of Onitama. This is a great game to bust out when a friend comes over.

The app is great - it looks gorgeous and plays well (the freezing problem can be fixed by uninstalling, restarting phone, and reinstalling). But the online Buddy system is so outdated. We’ve had words with friends for a decade and haven’t implemented the most basic online system here? To add a buddy and request to play with them you both need to be online at the same time - WHY? It’s a crippling move to the games community and turned off so many of my friends. How could it be this difficult? The app should be able to use your contact list and you should be able to invite people to play regardless of their online status within the app. It’s truly baffling and definitely not industry standard. This is the primary way to attract people to the app.... please, please update.
