Banzai - Ninja Sports is out! ($0.99)



Banzai - Ninja Sports
Imaginary Factory


Quote:
Banzai is the first Turn Based Sports Strategy game for the iPhone. Battle with your team of ninjas in the most simple and addictive versions of existing sports.

Play Hockey, Volley or the classic Capture The Flag. Dodge Ball is the next mode to be included but much more will come!

We plan on keep adding new teams and game modes to the game so be sure to check it frequently!

Buy now and enjoy this low release price or regret it later!
Here are some screenshots:











This is another one of those beautiful little $0.99 gems! I bought it as soon as it popped up on Appshopper.com, and have been playing now ever since then. Very fun little app for under a buck! It looks like the price is going take off soon! 5/5 STARS in my book!

Looks cool, but how exactly do you play?
For say the hockey?
Do you take turns moving your ninja around?

It is a turn based sports game, and for hockey (or any of them for that matter) you have three ninjas per team and on your turn, you touch each of your team's ninjas and for each one you drag a directional arrow aiming them where you want them to go. Also with this you have varying distance of movement (like a power meter for the directional arrow). After both teams have plotted their teams moves, then they "BATTLE!"

It is a lot of fun! You should go grab it before the price goes through the roof! Lol! And you are quite welcome, I thought it was fun so I went and made a thread for it!

Hi,

Uau, thanks for your support! It's good to know that the game is enjoyed and played by someone else than me

Right now there's a few more game modes to be added in the next update (and online multiplayer in the near future) but if you have any other ideas that you would like to see implemented in the game, just message me or email me at info@banzaithegame.com

Thanks again!

Well, to be honest I did make a video but it's a bit old and it's kind of amateur... Anyway, it's in http://banzaithegame.com, if you want to take a look

This is absolutely brilliant! LOVE it. Superb value for money!

Looking forward to the new games in future updates... How about a 'Pool' variant where the Ninjas have to sink themselves into holes...

Or Sumo - they all begin in a circle and last one out wins!
