TA Review : http://toucharcade.com/2010/05/06/ni...for-wee-ninja/

Trees of Doom's appeal comes largely thanks to its crisp, richly colored artwork. Sure, the gameplay itself is an interesting spin on the usual tilt or tap mechanic, requiring quite a bit of dexterity and skill to land precision jumps, but at the end of the day we know what these games are about. They're about high scores and quick games that keep you coming back for more. Trees of Doom definitely delivers on this, and looks great to boot. If you liked Doodle Jump and other see-how-high-you-can-go games, and you like Ninjas (who doesn't) then this is definitely a worthwhile pickup.

Also I've had issues when flinging off of branches; sometimes the game doesn't register my touch, I think the touch detection area is far too small for those. Those small issues aside it's a lot of fun, and there's nothing that can't be fixed in a small update.

I got Space Miner during the first sale, so I saved two bucks. Exactly the price of this game. Space Miner has given me far more value than the 3 bucks I paid for it, and more even than the 5 that I would have happily paid in retrospect. I have no qualms whatsoever tossing this quality dev a bone, even though I normally don't ike paying more than 99 cents for this sort of game.

It may resemble a Doodle Jump clone, but don't let that fool you: the game plays much more like a true platformer, albeit vertical, than a tilt-based reaction game. And that's the thing; Ninjatown can move fast if you want it to, but it also allows the kind of deliberateness that's at the core of all the best platformers. Part of me wishes that they'd gone farther in that direction and included multiple lives, level breaks, and a final objective. Still, I know that this kind of endless set up is very popular in the App Store, so I understand why they took this route.

Polished, cute, and fun. That about sums it up.

Just don't stay in one place too long thinking when an enemy is nearby. The ones that fly close to the trees will surely get you. The background tree music and sound effects help you to get in the mood of the game. There are a wide variety power-ups each with their own sound effects and character changes. Not to mention the common objects which lay on both trees that will either help you or hinder you on your journey. I can already see it becoming addicting when I think, "Oh just one more game," ten times later. The only thing I wish there was in this game would be levels to play through. This isn't a maker or braker though.

I think the controls just aren't very smooth on the larger device. Today I have been playing it on my touch and it's a much better experience. I really like how you aren't constantly moving in this game and can think a little bit about your next move.

The animations of the ninja are really well done, as is the background and the enemies. I like it that you arent pressed on to move and you can really think about your next steps.

The only thing thats a little bit of a problem is that it just takes a while to get really tricky. Maybe they should add another difficulty level that starts out with more obstacles.

But I think its money well spend.

Blazing blueberry bananaphone, how great 'tis to be an iDevice gamer in 2010 with no end in sight to the constant downpour of great inexpensive games. Because I was just told that I could say it again(although this is my first time saying it), I shall: Bloody hell, what an awesome day to be an igamer!
