  • Summary: Once upon a time, when Ninjas were still actively working behind the scenes... A ninja who belonged to one of the ninja factions had special powers to defeat evil spirits and had become a Nuke-Nin (fugitive ninja) by breaking the tribe's rules. The man, who is said to be the strongest Ninja of the clan, is called Raiko Mitarai. For his mission, he sneaks into the gadget-laden castle's forbidden area, but gets trapped and ends up being stuck inside. This time, the game takes place in the gadget-laden castle! Can Raiko, the strongest Ninja of all, successfully get out of the castle? Play with the main character of Ninja and escape from the castle, which is full of puzzles. Inspect and touch an area when it looks suspicious. The game provides an enjoyable game play experience for everyone by solving puzzles and using items. The game is full of action elements such as using Ninjutsu by drawing a circle, taking a picture and sticking it on the Memo screen, and by using the camera feature to enjoy the “escape game”. Expand

    There is some satisfaction to successfully solving the game's obtuse puzzles, but the frustration of finding the right items or touching the right spots to reach those solutions outweighs any sense of accomplishment you'll get.

    Escape Trick: Ninja Castle is essentially a book of puzzles in graphical adventure form. Its low-pressure "tap and see" approach is bound to appeal to certain gamers, but it's just as likely to leave others feeling bored and annoyed.

    Ninja Castle is, in a nutshell, a sequel to a bad game that doesn't fix the original's mistakes. It's more of the same, and, therefore, not recommended.
