Best game of the week

Neo Geo has been in tears lately, releasing classic games on mobile, usually two a week, and this week one of the best Neo Geo games ever made hit the Play Store. That’s right, I’m talking about Samurai Shodown, the OG, and let me tell you, it’s still considered a great fighting game to this day. There are 12 characters to choose from, all bringing unique skills, with unique stages to match. I highly recommend starting with Genan, as there’s nothing better than slicing and dicing your competitors with a claw hand. This one is a classic for a reason, don’t miss it.
