Iaidô Masters is a fighting game where Samurai Cats clash against each other in order to claim victorious. The main gimmick of this game is that each fighter only has one real attack move: the Iaidô. For more details about its design, please refer to the design document page or just give it a try!

Iaidô Masters is currently under development in order to add more characters to the rooster but you can try  the DEMO that only contains one character.


Attack -> right mouse button
Move -> A/D

Attack -> O(circle)/A gamepad button
Move-> D-Pad

Note: if possible , use an Xbox gamepad when controlling Player 2. Play Station gamepads may present weird behaviours. Feel free to report any major bug/issue in the comments.

Last but not least, we highly recommend playing the .exe. HTML version is fully playable but may contain some visual bugs.

The main design idea for this game was the need for understanding the really basics of Fighting Games: "is all about the footsies", as pros say. I always have struggled with Fighting Games but I do love their  complexity so I wanted to create a Fighting Game where mind-games and reflexes had more weight in the overall formula than style or executtion. I don't know if I have 100% succeeded on this task but I do think I have learned a lot about the genre and I'm proud with the overall result.

The main sources of inspiration for this game are: Samurai Shodown series, Divekick and Sekiro's fast paced combat system.

Hope you enjoy this little game as much as I enjoyed the process of creating it!

La forma de combate es tanto visual como auditiva;  Se aprende Mucho de la forma Que se mueve la CPU

Es hermoso el apartado artístico, los movimientos de los gatos, lo especial que son los gatos, cuando ganan o pierden (sus caritas) 

PD: Odie que la CPU tenga un pasito rápido para atrás y yo no aunque si se colocara, ya uno estaría OP (o quizás no descubri como hacerlo)

Buenas Wolf! gracias por probarlo y por darme feedback <3. Tu también tienes el pasito hacia atrás, solo tienes que pulsar dos veces el botón de ir hacia la izquierda (si eres el Player1) o el de la derecha si eres el Player 2. Un saludo y nuevamente, gracias!
