Tuesday was a bit quiet from NVIDIA and I thought this week there wasn’t going to be a new game but I guessed wrong and there’s a late Wednesday entry in the form of Mini Ninjas! A third-person action-adventure game, Mini Ninjas incorporates just about all the fun things you can imagine about being a super-stealthy ninja warrior while staying appropriate for players as young as ten. This, along with a strong set of core gameplay mechanics and challenge factor, gives the game the double-edged sword appeal of being both accessible to younger players while still offering plenty for more experienced gamers.
To get you up to speed here’s some plot: An old Ninja Master has sensed a great disturbance in The Force…oops – we mean in the balance of nature. So he sends his most trusted students down from Ninja Mountain and into the world to investigate. Hiro and Futo are sent to find out what’s happening and to rescue their missing classmates after they neglected to return. As you play you’ll see how the difficulty ramps up with you always providing a challenge and for you to give it your all. The combat is of the “simple to learn, tougher to master variety” and will keep you hooked.
