Taido Warrior: Revenge

This game will combine detective work with story-driven action. It’s an ambitious project, so collaboration with a professional game company is desired! Contact warrior@taidoworld.com for more information.



General Information:

Out of our love for Taido came the inspiration to build a game! Taido is a Japanese martial art that emphasises movement, creativity, development and having fun.

What makes this game unique is the control system, which resembles Taido’s “Sotai” system of movement. The result is a mobile game with a fun combat system and exceptionally rich fighting mechanics.

Do you have what it takes to become a master Taidoka?



Movement is easy: just press Left or Right to move sideways, and double tap Left (or Right) to turn around and face that direction.

Tap any of the 5 Sotai buttons on the right (Sen, Un, Hen, Nen, and Ten) for a special Sotai movement.

Hold down any of the 5 Sotai buttons on the right (Sen, Un, Hen, Nen, and Ten) to bring up the Action Menu: now slide up for a quick attack, slide left for a strong attack, or slide right for a special attack.
Pro tip: got a hang of the controls? Then don’t wait for the Action Menu to show before starting your attack: simply slide up, left or right to begin your attack immediately!
