    3D Realms and General Arcade is happy to announce the port of Shadow Warrior to iOS.

    Lo Wang. Master ninja assassin for 20 years. A Shadow Warrior. Shadow warriors are the best of the best, and Lo Wang was the best of the Shadow warriors. Every top company in Japan had a shadow warrior... a protector, a negotiator, a cleaner.

    Lo Wang worked for Zilla Enterprises, a conglomerate with control in every major industry. Too much control. Power corrupts, and Master Zilla's corporation was corrupted to the core.

    Lo Wang discovered Master Zilla's demonic scheme to rule Japan, using creatures summoned from the dark side. A man of honor, Lo Wang quit. But one as powerful as Wang either must be on your side, or on no one's side. Master Zilla unleashes his creations for their first test: to kill a single man, a shadow warrior.. Lo Wang!

    If this controls anywhere near as bad as Duke Nukem 3D, I will kill someone.

    General Arcade are the people behind the iOS Doomsday series, which are Doom clones, as well as HacX. There games are considered by me to be overlooked gems. There's no guarantee how Shadow Warrior will turn out but I assume General Arcade will stick to the same engine mechanics. HacX is free if you want to sample the set-up and it's a good FPS. I'm excited to see General Arcade still plugging away at things with something more than Doom clones.

    Who wantasome wang? I do! Wait, no, that came out wrong...

    Seriously though, this game brings back so many memories of punishable abuse of Military network use during off hours and duty days!

    General Arcade
    I'm from General Arcade, partner of 3D Realms for Shadow Warrior port. Just to make it clear: Duke Nukem 3D is done by MachineWorks Northwest, not by General Arcade and we don't have any relations with them. We heard about controls problems in Duke, that made us work even harder on controls in our game. In Shadow Warrior we've implemented control schemes same way as it's done in Modern Combat 3 or in Shadow Gun/Dead Trigger. So the only things you should worry about is if you can beat it or not, because this game is hardcore :)
    I will post some in-game images and videos later.

    I find the controls pretty decent since the update.

    Excellent. :) I'll gladly throw my money towards you guys. Shadow Warrior was always that game that escaped me when I was younger (can still remember it sitting on a shelf in a store in the Sultanate of Oman...no idea why I never bought it), so I'm glad to have the chance now...on a touchscreen device, let alone. Wow how the times have changed.

    Since I'm here...mind if I ask? Will it be retina enabled?

    Same here, before the update Duke Nukem was terrible control-wise, but since the update its been fine.

    But looking forward to Shadow Warrior, nice surprise seeing this suddenly appear. Hope this new company can do some more work such as 'Blood' which was from 3d Realms.

    I played lots of oldschool games and Blood was definitely in the top. I had nightmares from that game lol. Anyway... after the Shadow warrior gameplay vid (posted on the 1st page) ended, YouTube gave me some random video suggestions. I just randomly clicked one and I was blown away. The nostalgia cought up on me... I knew I've seen those graves, zombies, pitchfork and the throwing dynamite before. Then I suddenly remembered. I played Blood as a kid and kinda forgot about it. This just made my day.

    Back on topic: will Shadow warrior have multiplayer?
