Eduardo the Samurai Toaster
|Genre(s)||Run and gun|
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.
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.
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".
IGN found the art style interesting, but thought the gameplay was shallow, repetitive and generic made marginally more enjoyable with multiple players. It currently holds a score of 61 on Metacritic.
