    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.
  2. Of the worst games you could ever have the misfortune of playing.
  3. 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.
  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. 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]

The weaponsI am seven and thought this would be a great game. i am so sad I got it. It made me sad for a few days. It played really badly. The weapons didn't work and the controls didn't work, it was ugly. It's hard for a seven year old to get money for games. They should try harder to make better games for kids. Full Review »
