App description: At the turn of the XVI century in Japan both the Emperor and the shogun lost the control under the country. It was the very time for pushful and ambitious daimios to subdue islands. It was the very time for strong warriors to demonstrate their boldness and great warlords to show their art. It was the time when cunning secret agents decided a battle of the clans.

In the tactical card game Shinobi players will take on the role of secret agents of the most powerful clans of feudal Japan. The aim of the game is supporting your clan with military advantage the clan which will have the most troops by the end of the game is considered to be the winner.
Whats feudal Japan without ninjas! Without them no game about Japan can be full. The ninjas function is obvious to shorten the number of warriors from the enemy clans.

From 3 to 5 players can take part in the game. The tactics of the game changes depending on the number of players. You will need careful calculation to win in 5 player game. Fans of bluff and psychological game will like the game with 3 participants.

The game seems simple at first sight, but believe or not, keeping your clan in secret, guessing which clans your rivals play for and making them to play into your hands is not simple at all.
You can play "Shinobi" with your friends in "hot seat" mode. Network game will be added soon.

Artwork looks reasonable, and judging from the filesize, there's considerable content, but how does the game proceed? There's no hint of gameplay mechanics, and no mention of any AI, so I'll sit and wait for someone braver or richer to TOFTT.

This has to legitimately be one of the funniest posts I've seen on TA in a very long time.

I was interested in the card game, but without the confirmation there is an AI, I'll pass until there's more info.

I bought it. There is definitely an AI, and it seems quite competent so far. I haven't won yet! Here's the link to the physical game for anyone interested:

I'm surprised you got that far. I saw "Shinobi" but was suspcious as it wasn't instantly followed by "SEGA". Saw the first screenshot and thought "screw it".

Thanks, Sizzla, we owe you one!

From the screenshots, the card art looks pretty cool. Can you confirm that, and were there any IAPs?
You said the AI was good, but do you believe it was playing fair?

Would like more gameplay impressions before committing to this, but definitely more interested now.

The art is nice, but very basic. There are no IAPs at all thank goodness. I've played three games and it certainly seems as though the AI plays fair.
