    For $5, you get a great-looking game as finely-tuned as any of Cave's other arcade-style games, making it more than the sum of its parts. Anyone into platforming action should give Nin2-Jump a go.

    Nin2-Jump could well have been a flash or web game, as its visuals are not very remarkable, and it has some problems in control which may be annoying sometimes. But it also has something especial.

    Nin2-Jump is a bit of an anomaly: while it may initially appeal to Cave fans, and it is fun while it lasts, the game isn't deep enough to whet said fan's appetites.

    The first platform made in Cave seems to be a successful project. Gameplay and a high-level graphic design offer a positive assessment to the game.

    While it lasts, Cave's genre breakout does a great job of making you feel like a nimble little paper ninja. [Issue#110, p.128]

    Nin2-Jump is a big step away from what we are used to play in the west. It's extremely japanese, but in a good way. Buy if you're looking for something different, but it really should've had more play time.

    A memorable presentation and well-crafted stages make this quirky platformer fun for the fleeting period of time it lasts.

    A little, frenzy, fun platform game with an edge on visual department. Tight and somewhat clunky level design make room for some frustration.

    An oddity, but not one that will be to everyone's tastes. [Issue#73, p.103]

    Nin2-Jump is an interesting experiment, with gorgeous graphics and a cool main character. Too bad that its level design and some weird choices from the devs made the entire experience a little nightmarish.

    Still, this is Cave we're talking about - the masters of Stress Gaming. What did you expect?

    Both Cave fans and challenge hounds will bask in Nin2-Jump's oft-arduous tests. All others, proceed with caution. [July 2011, p.75]

    Another great game from Cave. It's a fun platformer with cool visuals and a cheap $5 that will see profits go to Japan's disaster relief. You get a great game that helps a great cause. Everybody wins! Full Review »
