There’s a growing trend of ninja protagonists in recent apps and Hiptic Games jumped on the bandwagon with Friday’s release of their first mobile title – ‘Go Ninja.’ As far as ninja action games go, this one takes the cake.
As the ninja, you seek to avenge a city overrun by demon samurai, with an army of 50,000 soldiers. The game features slick HD graphics that run at 60fps (on iOS) with rich hand-drawn animations. Your character has nimble jumping skills and special attacks and abilities. Go Ninja is fun, fast-paced, and I guarantee you’ll have a tough time putting it down.
The simplicity is, in large part, the gameplay quality that proves most appealing and addictive. You simply tap or swipe the screen to fend off the demon samurai while earning bundles of points along the way. The samurai are scattered throughout the game, many on ground level, some hiding inconspicuously inside buildings, while others lurk on rooftops.
The more samurai you kill, the more points you earn. You can use these points to unlock extra costumes, game modes and ability upgrades as well as awesome wallpapers for the iPhone/iPad. Released on June 1, Go Ninja has already enjoyed a number of accolades, including stellar reviews in VentureBeat and AppAdvice. The game’s immaculate graphics and fantastic gameplay make Go Ninja a worthy recipient of June’s first App of the Week recognition.
It’s definitely worth a download, especially because it won’t cost you a cent. Go Ninja is available as a free download on iOS and Google Play – don’t forget to tell @vostalgic and @gdeglin what you think of their first mobile title!
