    The instant challenge and frantic pace make it perfect to just pick and play for 15 minutes, while the tight controls and potentially limitless number of floors makes it easy to pour hours into.

    While based on a free Adult Swim Flash game, Super House Of Dead Ninjas adds more than enough to justify a paid version – graphically, and in terms of new content.

    Even though a watered-down version of the game is available to play for free, Super House of Dead Ninjas on Steam is a great time-waster and comes recommended.

    Super House of Dead Ninjas is one of those rare games that is meant to serve as an homage to various gaming classics and yet manages to develop its own unique identity.

    It's a fun, polished platformer, but a limited one. [May 2003, p.83]

    Super House of Dead Ninjas is too predictable compared to its predecessor. A game that uses randomly generated levels could keep you entertained for a very long time, and House of Dead Ninjas did that by combining various obstacles. But now, only the order of rooms is random, and their contents are mostly the same all the time.

    This game is awesome. If you love a good old fashion platformer, with a good amount of replayability, get this game. It will kick your ass. One bloody hell of a good time! Full Review »

    SHoDN is a retro 16-bit game with shades of Metroid and Castlevania. It is also amazingly fun. There is a free flash version of this game which I recommend trying before purchasing this game. What the paid version adds is more weapons, a new tower, fullscreeen support, gamepad support, and other new additions. Best of all, this game is super cheap only costing around 6 dollars. The game also supports user-generated levels and the couple I have played have been quite good. Full Review »

    Brutal, great, fantastic, BRUTAL. Blood everywhere I highly recommend playing on max blood settings it adds so much to the game. Hours of fun, frustration (good frustration) and did I mention how BRUTAL it is? Definitely worth the $5. Full Review »
