App description: "Flick Ninjas is a charming little game that you should try if you want a quick side scroller with a twist." -AppAdvice.com

8-bit Ninjas love to be flicked! Star of a 90's era 8-bit game with hopelessly broken controls, The 8-bit Ninja is sucked from his 8-bit world and plunged into a fancy new smartphone. Once there he realizes something: gamepads are dead to him, he loves to be flicked.
