"Once upon a time in feudal Japan there lived a wicked summoner named Seimei who brought a great evil into the world. Only one man could stop him: an adviser to the former chancellor named Tengan. But Seimei anticipated this challenge and had Tengan condemned to prison forever. With no other recourse in sight, Tengan elected to free a sleeping Sumioni, or Inkdemon, named "Agura" at the cost of his own life, bequeathing this creature a compulsory mission through the scorched ruins of Japan to defeat Seimei and wrench order from chaos. Guide Agura through 2D side-scrolling levels and unleash his powers by drawing brush strokes on the touchscreen. Create paths to traverse, set enemies aflame, spawn deadly thunderstorms and even summon powerful Inkgods to do your bidding! Set in a vibrant world brought to life through traditional hand-painted ""sumi-e"" ink art, Sumioni: Demon Arts combines fast-paced platforming with unique touchscreen functionality for the perfect mix of classic and modern. "

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A piece of art and fun to play!! I have to say this game reminds me of a oriental version of a Patapon game except instead of summoning musical--fighting powers via button press you summon mystical-fighting powers via screen touching. The graphics are eye candy to behold. The control is right on the money. I think the audio is perfectly rendered for this game. I cannot understand why this game has been given such poor reviews. At times the levels are repetitive but they look so beautiful and control so well I really did not care. The incentive to improve the star rating was there for me and that alone is worth the lasting appeal. Highly recommended for side scrolling oriental hack n slash fans. A true masterpiece of a game and highly underrated. 9.2/10.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful,colorful and destructive!! A unique oriental themed side scroller with beautiful,colorful and destructive overtone. Great control and perfect audio for this type game.For some reason this game reminds me of PATAPON only instead of summoning music with the buttons, you summon destruction with your fingers.I don't know if everyone would want to replay after finishing but I know I would just to achieve better scores. A very well done all around and highly recommended for side scroller oriental fighter fans!! 9/10
