    Kunai bears the classic signs of a metroidvania with a ninja, retro-futuristic flair. Find upgrades and secret treasure stashes, fight robots, and well-designed bosses, all while having a ton of fun doing so.

    From the opening moments to the end credits, everything about Kunai just oozes charm and its movement mechanics make it a joy to play. An absolute must-play.

    Kunai is a fantastic experience. It delights us with a charming main character and an action challenge that is always adding something new to keep us hooked. Undoubtedly, one of the best games of 2020 so far.

    Kunai is quite entertaining with its frantic action and acrobatics and while it doesn't do anything blatantly wrong, in terms of fascinating discoveries and memorable set pieces it has little to offer.

    Kunai is the work of a promising studio, packed with good platforming, which also suffers from lacking exploration. However, it's one of those games that you will enjoy for a walkthrough no matter how many metroidvania you've played before.

    Follow Tabby, a ninja tablet, against evil robots in a post apocalyptic world. Kunai is an interesting metroidvania game with a great untapped potential.

    If you like the genre, you’ll like Kunai. If you don’t, this won’t be the one to convince you otherwise, but it’s got a great aesthetic and some real bright spots just the same.

    Not worthy of that bomb - bought to show support and am actually loving it. More metroid than vania, inspiration from Hollow Knight. Humor isNot worthy of that bomb - bought to show support and am actually loving it. More metroid than vania, inspiration from Hollow Knight. Humor is on point, doesn't take itself too seriously. Great movement mechanics and great first level that shows the game rather than tells with a tutorial screen. Expand
