The solemn sensei is probably the most moth-eaten cliché in martial arts movies. You know how it goes: the bowed, wise old man stands aside, arms folded, and gently dishes out fortune cookie-grade advice to a hot-blooded youngster.
Sensei Wars doesn't adhere to the cliché (not that particular cliché, anyway). The game's main character, its titular sensei, fights alongside the disposable troops you send into the fray.
It's a pretty cool addition that adds a touch of personality to what is otherwise a pretty typical strategy game.
Fight with me
Sensei Wars stars a young warrior who watched his town get decimated by Mongols when he was a boy. When he becomes an adult, his hunger for vengeance doesn't clear up with his acne. He wants to beat back the Mongol threat, and it's your job to guide his hand.
Training up your sensei alongside your regular troops is an interesting mechanic that helps Sensei Wars stand out a little from the rest of the Clash of Clans clones
