  • 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

    This game was made by Data Design Interactive, the game company which made games with negative reviews. While it is deceptive that the game is interesting, the game compared with other DDI games deserve a one because of the laggy framerate in short levels, jerky camera and poor controller/Nunchuk response. Same layout as Anubis II, which was also met with negative reviews. Nobody in their right mind should get this game. 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.

    The way to make the character jump is by shaking the nuncheck - whichever game developer or producer thought this was a good idea should be fired and then hit in the face repeatedly with wii nunchucks. Also, the camera is beyond terrible. If I could rate this negative I would. 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.

    Need anything about of Junk? Okay maybe I can say something about this one Ninjabread man is GARBAGE!!! It is worse the Superman 64, E.T. for the Atari and many other crappy games before this abomination. If I had one wish it would be Data Design Interactive would go Bankrupt. I personally thought that Sonic Next Gen was better than this. Do not ever buy it instead Get Super Mario Galaxy 1/2 or New Super Mario Bros Wii. Expand
