  • Summary: Hordes of snapping cup cakes, angry bees and jelly monsters have taken over this once sweet and tasty land. Only one man can stop this evil army of monster cakes. He’s one tough cookie, a guy that won’t crumble under the pressure... Ninjabread Man is here! [Cnospiracy]

  1. Very basic platform game with a promising lead character. Not actually awful but it's overpriced at 20 pounds and a little frustrating for younger players. [Christmas 2007, p.65]
  2. Of the worst games you could ever have the misfortune of playing.
  3. 15
    It’s buggy, oftentimes completely broken, somehow manages to have frame issues in tiny levels, and is completely ruthless if (and when) younger players die.
  4. Ninjabread Man couldn’t be a more of a generic platformer if it tried.
  5. It has no redeeming aspect except that thankfully the pain is short-lived, but then again you should heed our warning and avoid this title at all costs.
  6. Ninjabread Man lasted half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Three levels down and I was booted straight back to the main menu without fanfare. I thought I'd pressed the Quit button by mistake... Half an hour and one hundred percent done.

    A true masterpiece of our generation. I'll be playing this classic for years to come. Ninjabread Man is to the Wii era what Sonic was to the Genesis era. Expand

    I can understand why everyone hates this game. But, then, I have a very different opinion to most reviewers. In Ninjabread Man, you are in a place called Candy Land, and enemy scones, jellies, victoria sandwiches and cupcakes are attacking it. Yeah... Very basic story. You will see no history story of the character Ninjabread Man, or any character in this game, for that matter. The gameplay is fun, but unfortunately, the sword controls only half-work. Ninja stars and jumping controls are fine. I should also mention that the game is quite difficult, because of the sword controls. (however, you could just use ninja stars.) Also, not really a problem for me, but there are only 4 levels, with the tutorial included, which, altogether, with the amount of times you will die included, takes about 1 hour- 1 hour 30 minutes to complete. There is also no voice acting whatsoever. So, Ninjabread Man is built around a very good game idea, the gameplay is great and the graphics are acceptable by Wii standards in 2007. But, no voice acting and some half-working sword controls, bring the score of Ninjabread Man down to a 7/10. Keep in mind, that this game is still worth buying at a price of £8/$10 or less. Expand

    True crap. Just bad. Impossible to finish the game without crying in frustration. Plus comes the worst camera in a video game. shoddy graphics, and a bunch of creepy stuff like cupcakes melting, mouths on walls, and Grandma's teeth coming to life. I also didn't like the incredibly short length, bad controls and weapons, and bad dancing (Ninjabread dances in the Dough-Jo level when he gets a scroll.)Oh, and BTW, the game was made on the same platform as Anubis 2.

    COULDN'T THEY TRY A BIT HARDER!!!???

    This game runs on the same engine as another terrible game, Anubis II. The controls and lameness are identical. AVOID!!!

    This game is so bad, i would rather jump off the CN tower in Toronto. 3 levels in the game and i didn't even get past the first level! And would someone mind telling me how cupcakes can come to life? Expand

    Ninjabread man is an action adventure platformer developed by data design intereactive, and published,by conspiracy entertainment, and man is this game a conspiracy, i played the game at my cousins and the first five seconds i started to notice problems. The controls are broken, the graphics and sound suck, the mission structure is repetitive and the checkpoint system is simply broken. The game also has no voice acting, no interesting story, levels all play the same, weapons never work, killing enemies takes like a billion hits, there's only 3 levels(excluding the tutorial mission), and the game is filled with so many glitches, framerate issues, and a bad camera angle that it's basically unplayable.
