Pre-downloads for the Ninja Must Die Android version have started and the servers are set to launch today. If you want something fast-paced and visually clean, you’ll want to take a look.
According to the Google Play listing, Ninja Must Die is a combat runner with ninja fun. Well, not the historically accurate kind.
There is no spy activity in Edo Japan. Instead, drive through fantastical landscapes or ride a dragon.
The game is set in the land of Sunbreak, embroiled in a feud between the Samuari ruling class and shadow ninjas.
Samurai and ninja may both have bigger problems than each other, as a demonic demon is due to return from centuries of imprisonment.
The last time the Oni appeared, they effectively destroyed the world, so their resurrection is bad news for everyone.
In Ninja Must Die Android Edition you can choose 4 characters to control. All tend to different elements that affect gameplay.
Kuro, an aspiring ninja hero, uses the power of fire, and Rin, who lives in the mountains, summons ice magic to help her. The Pandaman Riki controls lightning, and the masked Enigma Souga controls the wind.
Gameplay takes the form of a combat runner. Dash along a 2D path in a picturesque 3D world, using your weapons and agility to avoid anything that comes your way.
Your obstacles range from steep drops to demons to giant rolling Buddha heads. The ninja world is a dangerous place. Although the head of the Buddha is your own fault.
Pandada Games renders the whole thing in a cool ink wash painting art style. This is very refreshing in a market where titles can start looking like carbon copies of each other.
