space ninja was free

pick it up.

iTunes Link: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=301040521&mt=8

Free for less than a day, because someone from outside the US really wants the game.


Editor's Choice Award
"Find a game with better accelerometer controls -- double-dog-dare you. An extremely challenging, yet fun space adventure well worth your four bucks."

An accelerometer based space game that takes the shooting out of shooter and still delivers solid, difficult, and amazingly fun arcade action.

"‘Space Ninja’ Nails the Controls"
-- toucharcade.com

"Awesome presentation; simple, but incredibly fun; slowdown mechanic is brilliant"
Must Have Award -- slidetoplay.com


You are the elite space mercenary "Space Ninja". You have been tasked to deliver a certain object to Jupiter, but mysteriously turret defense systems throughout the galaxy started attacking you.

Force your way through 40 stages of galactic defense systems using your special time-slowdown ability (touch the screen to activate) or using 7 different powerups to help you get through the hardest of defenses.

Over 40 levels, with 5 challenge missions. You can save replays of epic moments you went through to show your friends. Gain medals by finishing stages without special abilities.

Featuring music by Jake Kaufman (virt) and Samuel Ascher-Weiss (shnabubula).

Control is accelerometer based, and you can custom calibrate it. So you can play it vertically, while laying down in the couch, or whatever position you want.

Difficulty of this game rises from very easy to very hard. There's space for everyone.

I actually got it from a promo code months ago. I was looking at game devs' twitters and came across jormy games and they had posted a promo code like six minutes before I checked so i redeemed it

Yep, another app store classic if there is such a thing. Space ninja is simply insane.

My friend said to me, "I think the weather's trippy." I said, "No, man, it's not the weather that's trippy, perhaps it is the way that we perceive it that is indeed trippy." Then I thought, "Man, I should've just said, 'Yeah."CS.one R3DC3ll Faction-Join us or die...proud member of TheBeastlyNinja Epic-uber elite comedy crew

I don't know why I never picked this one up, but now is the time, I suppose.
