WHAT REVIEWS ARE SAYING:

nodpad.com: "Gameplay: The effort the developers put into this game is quite noticeable."…"realism in a fighting game is necessary to attract someone, and Zanshin is full of it. It's probably the best and most realistic martial arts tournament combat game I've ever seen"

LuthienT: "I am very impressed with this game. I love that it is accessible to a newby but allows for much more advanced play as you gain skill. This is a lot of game for the money."

kung_fool: "I've been waiting for a simulation-style martial arts game on the iPhone, and among the sea of sound-boards and 8-bit arcade clones, only Zanshin scratches that itch."

Finally!

:
Finally, someone gets it. Amid a sea of cartoony "beat-em-ups" that masquerade themselves as a martial arts games, comes Zanshin, a game that finally gets it right. This is bar none the BEST martial arts game on the App Store. If you are a fan of real martial arts or classic fighters such as Yie Ar Kung-Fu and Karate Champ (arcade version), then you'll love Zanshin.

The Version 1.1 update has made it even better. Throws add an exciting Judo factor to the gameplay and the "Dodge" mini-game reminds me alot of Karate Champ, a classic fighting game.

If you are a fan of martial arts you need to play Zanshin. Plus at $1.99, its a steal.

I also gotta add that the art direction is great. Its simple but it works. The developers knew the limitations, and worked with them to make an excellent looking game.

2/5 stars

Controls need work

:
Nice looking Karate Champ clone. However the controls need some work.

5/5 stars

Incredible

:
This is one of the greatest games I have ever played. Once I bought it, I could'nt stop playing it. Similar to Karate Champ. One thing that needs improvement are the stages that keep on repeating after the 5th stage. Should have more stages.
