Did you always want to throw ninja stars as a kid, but your mom said “no” because you would poke someone’s eye out? Let the childhood dream be reborn, with Shuriken Ninja! In this game, you throw ninja stars at various targets at the screen.
Overall Score: 4/5
The included levels have some awesome gameplay elements, like the ability to bounce ninja stars off the steel walls and rack up combos of targets with one ninja star for a score bonus. Also, the game has an awesome Round Challenge mode, where you have to hit as many targets as quickly as possible in a given time limit. And the included level editor adds even more fun to the game!
The game has some great music to accompany it, and the presentation is very smooth. However, it doesn’t do anything revolutionary here, so it only gets a 4/5.
Lasting Value: 4/5
If the developer included an online leaderboard for the Round Challenge mode and maybe some more levels, the lasting value would be perfect! With the current included levels, you’ll get over an hour of gameplay. Then you can play the Round Challenge mode which can be played over and over again. And finally, you can create your own levels if you’re bored!
