Fancy a good 1-on-1 brawler on your iPhone/iPod Touch? If so, look no further than Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior, a below-the-radar title that’s been widely considered as one of the top fighting games on the iDevice. Reviewed by ChiffaN last year, Dragon Warrior received a Kiss It rating thanks to the tight controls, customizable fighting styles and solid graphics.
Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior makes good in its attempt to challenge Street Fighter IV as the best fighting game on the AppStore. They are both good in some respects while lacking in others. The former is more friendly to the casual gamer and the latter more targeted at hardcore fighting fans. The only real grudge I have is the absence of any kind of multiplayer, which has always been an integral part of any fighting game. Regardless, providing both an exception graphical experience even on the older devices and polished easy-to-use controls, Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior is the number one choice for anyone willing to try out how a fighting game should perform on an iDevice.
No particular reason has been given as to why its gone free (for very first time) or for how long. So if you’re a fighting junkie, make haste and pick this gem of a fighter up while the offer’s still good.
A masterpiece of the 3D martial arts genre, the game is developed using motion-capture technology and features players fighting in historical locations around the world in an attempt to become the Master of Martial Arts and honor Bruce Lee’s legacy.
Customizable fighting styles make Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior highly user-friendly. In Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior, the gameplay and controls are designed for casual, as well as skilled gamers. It is the only game to bear Bruce Lee’s name and likeness in the iTunes App Store.
