Well this sure looks great. And yeah, I will buy another YoYo Games product for 99c without even thinking about it. Plus there can never be too many ninja platformers around.

Hmm. You know, I explored a few of the other YoYo Games apps after Karoshi, and found none of them to be in any way similar whether stylistically, thematically, or indeed simply anywhere near as good. Not saying this is a bad game; I don't have any idea about it at the moment, but would advise taking it at face value without any Karoshi influence.

@Gabrien, Squeaker, Medianotzu et al.

Not all YoYo games are by Jesse Venbrux. Karoshi and 'They Need to Be Fed' were designed by him. A quick search leads me to believe that Ninjammin Beat-Jitsu was not.

I'm with you Gabrien. After the utterly fabulous Karoshi and stunningly addictive They Need to be Fed, I made the mistake of buying both of their Sky Diver games plus one or two others. None were anywhere near the brilliance of Karoshi or TNtbF. In fact, they were downright poor.

Once bitten, twice shy, I'll be holding off for the time being.

May be they're trying to reach more casual players with other products.
