Ninjump is simple game of agility. Dodge deadly ninjas with blades and dynamite, ravenous birds and hyper squirrels as you climb up the walls to beat your highest score. Leadership board and social-networking features available for the competitive player.
Pros & Cons:
- Stunning 3D graphics
- Responsive controls
- Simple, yet challenging game play
- Some lagging problem. It’s not noticeable at the beginning but the higher you climb, the more you see your ninja freezing in midair right before he’s about to fall to his doom.
In Ninjump the objective is to run up the walls while you fight off flying birds, squirrels and deadly ninjas chucking blades and dynamite at you. Skillfully flip past your foes with a tap of your finger or toward them for the kill. The cool thing about this game is that after you destroy three birds, squirrels, etc in a row, you can turn into them and plow your way through your enemies. The higher you climb, the more points you get. Trust me, you’ll find your self playing multiple times to try and beat your highest score.
Fun Factor & Addictive:
Addictive? Hell yes, and challenging. The higher you climb, the faster it gets. You’ll find yourself trying to collect three of each item to climb faster, but it takes ninja mastery and many play-throughs to avoid annoying ledges and ninjas trying to kill you.
The bright color palette makes the 3D graphics pop, and it’s cool to see your animated Ninja flying up the wall with wings or pouncing on your enemy with squirrel-like claws and a bushy tail in its wake. The lag detracts from game play a bit when you’re in this mode, but it’s cool turning into an animal for a while and plowing through the game.
Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
No vibration features. The sound is loud; but it has a handy toggle feature, which allows you to cut the sound off. Although, the background music really makes the game, it’s hilarious hearing your ninja fall for the first time after he’s been knocked out the sky by a ninja blade.
