Extremely Underrated Game

This game is extremely addicting and for good reason. Other than the fancy look and more-so unique character design, the gameplay is extremely smooth and has a rare blend of mobility you don’t usually see in ordinary platform games. The combat in this game is extremely fluid and challenges the player’s creativity. The environment also provokes creativity as well as presice movements; what is to be expected of a ninja like Kuro.

Aesthetically, the art style is quite versatile, although rated as 12+, as an older teenager, it still appeals to me and my other friends. The environment and graphics of animations are very well refined in their own style as well as being able to explore several different ‘environment themes’.

To top this all off, the accessability of the game is superb. Although in the earlier missions in Chapter 1 teaches how to do everything, the controls are still configureable to suit your own needs. It allows you to configure most if not all of the combat and movement options as well as being able to control with a ‘joystick’.

Along with it’s very fair price, this game is definitely a must-buy.

lot of fun

This game reminds me of the XBLA game Splosion Man, its a fun platformer. Controls are simple and easy to use, difficulty is there but its not too hard. A little expensive for what you get but I’d say its worth checking out. Its a good time.

fun, nice gameplay but not all that much content

Outside of its smooth, superior graphics, this game could fit right in alongside Super Contra as an old school 2d scroller. The game is simple and to the point, and in the end, your success will come down to your mastery of the relatively simple controls. I’d say this game gave me $4.99 worth of entertainment. I probably have played about 4 hours so far, and I doubt I’ll play more than another hour or two.

You’ll get more time out of the game if you’re into not just trying to beat the game but trying to achieve a 3 star rating on all levels, which you can do by completing the level within a certain amount of time while collecting all the coins (which have no value other than that they improve your star rating).


The graphics are cool and smooth. The gameplay is simple but fun with creative ways of attacking and solid though not perfect controls.


Not much variety in enemies. No character or equipment changes. Not much story. Not a huge amount of overall content.
