- Normally I tend to play a lot of hidden object adventure, racing and fighting games when it comes to reviewing games for mobile devices. But Ninja Sprint is a totally different bag for me. Ninja Sprint by eastasiasoft is an auto-run platformer, which if you never played that type of game before, means the character or object your controlling is automatically moving as soon as the game starts. The only actions your responsible for are things like jumping, dodging and collecting items.
The game consists of four differing locations in 80 worlds and has fairly simple controls. Tapping the screen on the bottom left causes the character to slide; tapping on the bottom right performs a jump. You are also able to perform a basic double jump simply by tapping the bottom right a second time while in air. The premise of this game is rather simple as you are tasked within attack your enemies by running into them. Pits, fences and other obstacles will be put in your way, and you must avoid them at all cost. Running into an obstacle causes you to lose a heart, which you only get 3 to begin with and falling in a pit is instant death. While youíre running into enemies attacking them, a special meter is building that will allow you to deliver a kickass fireball that will decimate everything onscreen; once filled. There is also coin collecting, a la Mario Bros with each level having 3 big coins and other coins for you to collect.
The visuals for this game are pretty good. The characters designs are bright and crisp with backgrounds that are well detailed. These visuals make the game pretty fun to play, but there is a downfall when it comes to the presentation and thatís when youíre traversing the levels having to avoid obstacles. The moments where you have to jump or double jump to avoid obstacles, the screen will follow the character. While it keeps the action centralized on the screen, it workds again the player in the since that when it comes land back on the ground, you wonít know if you are indeed landing on the ground or in death-dealing pit. This can be frustrating at times but nowhere near as annoying as the music is. You get a change of scenery every now and then but music is always the same and itís a catchy tune but it tends to get annoying after a while.
Ninja Sprint is a nice change of pace. With simplistic controls, the game is easy for anyone to pick up and play. The repetitive music will get annoying fast, but the ability to mute it helps wonders. So check this game out it will be a fun time and with so many levels you will be able to play it for a while. At $0.99 itís definitely a great price and worth a try.7/
