Taito Corp Great Swordsman Arcade MAME Game

Author: John Pio  //  Category: Reviews

 

Taito Corp released Great Swordsman in 1984. It combined fencing, Japanese kendo fighting and gladiator sword fighting in one arcade machine.
There are 3 fencing opponents to defeat before the bonus stage of deflecting arrows being shot at you begins.
The Kendo stage has a total of 5 bamboo wielding opponents before its bonus stage.
The Gladiator stage has a total of 7 raging Romans looking to rip you asunder.

 

It’s hard to not notice the similarities of Great Swordsman’s fencing stage and the 1985 fencing stage in the wildly popular Summer Games II by Epyx.
