NinJump HD iPad App
With iPad games, simple and straightforward game play is always a formula for success. NinJump HD, a fun, point-scoring game, is no different. The objective for NinJump HD is to help your ninja scale the wall of seemingly endless ninja towers and amassing points as you climb.
Of course, being a ninja is not a walk in the park. There are multiple obstacles that a player must avoid. Attacking birds, squirrels and opposing ninjas are abundant enough to be a nuisance. The game ends once the player is hit by any of these obstacles.
The player is allowed one action to help the ninja avoid and progress through the towers. Tapping the screen causes the ninja to switch between sides of the screen, while performing an attack that can vanquish the squirrels, ninjas and birds. Hitting 3 of the same enemy in a row will result in a power up and a few seconds of invulnerability and bonus points. This adds a nice incentive to have to vary the times of when to attack and when to avoid certain situations
Though the path that the ninja follows does get more complex with more obstacles, there is not too much variation. It’d be great to see more variety in level design to help make each time you play a bit more unique. Since the entire game is about massing the most amounts of points possible, it’s definitely a nice touch to post to your social network (Facebook, Twitter) and encourage others to try to best your top scores.
NinJump HD is a great game to just pick up and casually play when there are a few free moments to game.
