The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai
4 November 2009
Conclusion: The different game modes also help. Story Mode with its 5 different difficulties, arcade mode, and the dish challenge. Achievement List: A pretty good achievement list. Make you work and should be able to get all but two quite easily.
Excerpt: For those of you who are unaware, a few months back Microsoft announced a competition in which budding developers could create a game using their XNA Game Studio software, and the selected winner would have their game released and also take home a contract Xbox Live Arcade Publishing contract. James Silva won the above stated contest and his creation, The Dishwasher, is now unleashed onto the Arcade floor.
Excerpt: Everyone has dreams, some possible, some impossible, some simply formed by strange images and events. James Silva (an independent programmer) found the way to combine those three options when he applied to Microsoft’s “Dream Build Play” contest, where small videogame developers had the opportunity to send their games, and where the best would be published on Xbox Live. His game quickly got a lot of attention and was chosen as one of the winners.
Excerpt: The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai was the result of Microsoft’s Dream-Build-Play competition. Developed by James Silva, and influenced by his past occupation as a dish washer, The Dishwasher successfully combines old school platforming and new school technology to create a superbly violent slash-’em-up.
Conclusion: Overall The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai is a worthy addition to the Xbox Live Arcade. With its over the top violence and easy to pick up, hard to master gameplay, it will keep gamers interested for some time as they try to master all moves and complete the game in the quickest possible time. Co-op whilst a great addition will most likely be looked over in favour of the single player experience.
