I really enjoyed my quick go on this, certainly enough to recommend it to anyone that likes those fast, frantic high score games that are over in two minutes.

Don't think I've heard anything at all about this before this sale

Thanks to the dev for this. Love the concept, art and music.

It would be cool to make the enemies coming at you require a little more strategy, instead of just coming faster and faster. I realized after a few tries my hand-eye coordination has a speed limit and the gameplay was one dimensional, so I simply stopped playing.

Ideas for adding strategy: some "good" ninjas come at you that you don't kick. Or sometimes the ninjas throw projectiles, which you hold your touch on that quadrant to duck. Maybe some ninjas move very slowly, so you have to keep track of them while fending off the fast enemies. It's such a neat little engine, just food for thought.

Regardless, thanks for sharing this!

By what standard?

It looks like an early 8bit game, i.e. classic Atari/Commodore Bruce Lee.

After the Beat Leap thread, I'm going to assume all comments by Gov are sarcastic
