Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is a tactical real-time strategy, inspired by the first three installments of the Commandos series. The game takes us to Japan in 1615, which is the early Edo period. The new shogun decides to enforce peace in the entire country which forces him to eliminate all opponents who dream of rebellion. To do so, he turns to five specialists of killing, sabotage, and espionage.
Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is a tactical strategy game in which we command a small unit of agents who perform risky tasks in enemy territory which is being constantly patrolled. While playing, the action is presented from a camera placed high above the characters’ heads. In most missions, we are greatly outnumbered so we have to take a stealthy approach. Avoiding detection is made easier by the user interface that shows guards’ field of view. The available maps were designed to allow to perform a mission in various ways.
The party consists of a ninja named Hayato (who prefers stealthy attacks), a samurai called Mugen that specializes in open confrontations and can engage several enemies simultaneously, a geisha by the name of Aiko, a true mistress of camouflage and distraction, Yuki the hunter (he can set traps), and an elderly sniper known as Yuki.
