  • Summary: "sublime", "it's already becoming one of my favorite games on the iPhone" - Kotaku, Game App of the Day1-bit Ninja is pure run + jump fun unlike anything else on the App Store. The stylized 2D side-scrolling world can be dragged into 3D at any point to reveal hidden paths. Built from the ground up for touch screen control that rivals 'real buttons', 1-bit Ninja sacrifices a back button in the name of precise control you don't ever have to think about. Need to move in the opposite direction? There's a spring or platform for that!* stylized 1-bit engine mixes 2D & 3D* simple 2 touch control for jump-precision* classic head-bouncing, run + jump gameplay* hiscores & best times* save & watch replays of your best runs* 4 worlds, 20 levels & over 100 challenges* secrets & easter eggs* unlockable camera modes inc. red/cyan 3D*** original chip-tune sound trackNew levels and features are already planned for the first update, follow kode80 on Twitter to get the latest news: http://twitter.com/kode80Want more 3D iOS magic?

    Combine all that with infectious classic gameplay and I'm sure you'll agree that 1-Bit Ninja is, well, brilliant.

    A unique gameplay experience. Not only a good plataforming game which will be loved by retro fans, but also quite innovative thanks to the use of several points of view and 3D camera.

    Personally, I'm completely hooked on 1-bit Ninja, and if you think you're able to accept some of the design decisions in the game and you're a fan of its retro aesthetics, then I'd definitely recommend checking it out.

    With four worlds (five levels each) and unlimited replay value, 1-bit Ninja is a worthwhile purchase for old schoolers, new schoolers, and anyone else looking for a challenging retro platformer.

    Reminiscent of the days of the original GameBoy in both graphics and simplistic style, 1-Bit Ninja reveals itself to be anything but, as you switch frequently from the default 2D presentation to 3D to discover and unlock the game's hidden pathways.

    Do you pine for something harder than the average platformer? Do you hate predictable level design? Try 1-bit Ninja - it's an old-school flavor with a menacingly modern twist.

    1-bit Ninja's retro style hits a sweet spot, but the retro difficulty makes it feel frustrating.
