Ninja, Please!

Ninja, Please! (approved!)

In a nutshell, an arcade/action/puzzle game where you have to fight off a bunch of ninjas that are trying
to kill you - with guns, and with really nasty insults. (My homage to the Monkey Island legacy) Are you
clever enough to talk trash with the best? Are you man enough to face down hordes of angry ninjas?

Find out, in the first installment of "Ninja, Please!"

iTunes link

Obligatory Facebook page.

Features:
  • over 20 levels
  • over 50 jokes (some of them funny!)
  • in full color!
  • never hardly ever crashes!
  • with sound!

In all seriousness, yes, this is a real game. And no, it does not crash.

thanks redfirm. But I got a couple of "less than enthusiastic" responses from friends saying they "don't get it".

I want it to be something people can pick up and play right away, and I tried to make it something that is easily understood.
  • Did you "get" the idea/premise of the game easily, or was it initially wtf?
  • Any tips on how to promote it? (without resorting to spam/annoying people)

I don't like the idea of shooting ninjas. Ninjas are cool.

Personally not that keen on the graphics. I love Operation Wolf style games and this looks a 'bit' like one of those. But the insult thing i'm not a fan of i must admit.

Sorry !

Thanks for the feedback. I know it's not to everyone's liking, but it just seemed like a neat idea that I wanted to try. Personally I'm a little tired of the cartoony style games. E.g. angry birds is responsible for so many bird cartoon games now.
