|Straw Hat Samurai is a fun game of drawing lines with the mouse to slash through your enemies and defeat the evil lord. In this game you are a samurai who will use both the Katana and the bow to kill enemies, take out towers, and accomplish your mission. The main game depends on how fast you are with the mouse at drawing but there are some general tips that you should know about this game. In particular, how to avoid damage in the later levels. The trick is to keep your lines as precise as possible. I would also try to see as many enemies as possible before you make a strike.|
Except when dodging arrows, I would try to stay as close to the middle of the screen as possible. Wait for the meelee enemies to come towards you so you can see how many there are and how far they are apart from each other. When you do slash to one side of the screen, make sure to quickly slash back to the center. Remember that you move by drawing slashes. When there are archers, look to see where the arrows are coming from and take that side out first. When all the archers are dead, then use the stay-in-the-middle strategy to take out melee enemies. Don’t forget you can jump in the air and slash downwards.
In order to take down towers, you must use the arrow to kill to people in towers. You can’t just run and slash up there. Use the arrow by holding shift and using the mouse to aim. Just aim in the general direction, you do not have to be very accurate to pluck off the defenders. On the tower levels, its more about multi-tasking your slashing with your shooting than anything else. This game depends a lot on being able to see where your enemies are and quick mouse movement. Have your reflexes ready!
The last thing is the power-ups you can get from the treasure chests. You have the choice of +10 HP or +10% chance to dodge. I suggest stacking everything on one of these skills instead of trying to balance both. The HP increase is probably the safe route but the dodge might be more powerful in the long run if you can stack enough of them together.
