Eduardo the Samurai Toaster is a run and gun side-scrolling video game developed by Semnat Studios for the Wii's WiiWare digital distribution service. It was released on June 15, 2009 in North America.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

The game revolves around players battling a series of enemies (such as spear toting carrots and robotic mangos) across 13 levels, upgrading their weapons along the way by picking up pastry power-ups dropped by them. As well as using a flying toaster mech at certain points in the game. The game also features drop-in cooperative multiplayer for up to four players.[2]

Development[edit]

The game features an art style combining drawings covering several mediums such as pen & ink, acrylic paint and charcoal sketchings which were scanned into the game. According to the developers, the game and main character in particular were inspired by a combination of chambara movies and "silly randomness".[3]

Reception[edit]

IGN found the art style interesting, but thought the gameplay was shallow, repetitive and generic made marginally more enjoyable with multiple players.[4] It currently holds a score of 61 on Metacritic.[5]
