    With manageable levels that feels like a puzzle themselves, simplistic gameplay, and challenges that will attract dedicated players, Ninja Senki DX is a pretty well rounded package for such a small price tag.

    There is fun to be had with Ninja Senki DX and the inclusion of additional game modes adds a lot of replay value for those who enjoy it. However due to the repetitive nature it’s a game I can only really enjoy in short bursts.

    The levels are challenging without being overly frustrating and the music is charismatic. Fans of the retro 8-bit games will enjoy Ninja Senki DX.

    Ninja Senki DX is solid on its basic gameplay mechanics and definitively is a good and challenging retro game. It is not the best Tribute Games title but at least have new challenges that perfectly cover its cheap price.

    Ninja Senki DX reads like an old codger's take on modern literature and walks like a decrepit schoolgirl gallivanting her way to her first tax return and, fittingly so, her first heart attack. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Tribute Games made garbage.

    I haven't had this much fun with a platformer in ages. I got this game as a 'free' PSN monthly game and hadn't heard of it before. This gameI haven't had this much fun with a platformer in ages. I got this game as a 'free' PSN monthly game and hadn't heard of it before. This game is a solid hit of nostalgia that takes me back to my Sega Master System days playing Alex Kidd and The Ninja, and feels exactly like a cross between those two. I've played it in short bursts every day or two and my little boy (still too young to play himself) loves to watch me play this game. It's tough enough to make it a challenge and fun enough to make me keep coming back to try and get to the next level. I haven't finished it yet, but I'm pretty sure this game has enough momentum to keep me going until I get there.

    TL;DR Got it free, but have had so much fun with it I had to give these guys something for making this great game, so it gets a 10/10 - I would pay good money for this game if I hadn't already got it free.

    If you liked Super Meat Boy and old NES games, you might like this one. Excellent, responsive controls and a brutal hardcore challenge make upIf you liked Super Meat Boy and old NES games, you might like this one. Excellent, responsive controls and a brutal hardcore challenge make up for some middling and occasionally unfair level design. You might get frustrated, but it measures your skills fairly. The soundtrack is really good, too! Expand

    just too ugly, too unforgivable for players, not nostalgic at all
    a too hard game is cathcing only when is beautiful or smart. not at all.

    As you’d expect the gameplay is relatively simple and, apart from moving left and right, just two buttons are used for jumping and shooting. This in itself wouldn’t be a problem if the game didn’t also bring back many other retro elements best left in the past. Enemies leaping and hitting you from offscreen, the trial and error nature of many sections, severe difficultly spikes, sparse checkpoints etc may all be in keeping with the games aesthetic but in 2018 it just makes for a frustrating experience and will only really appeal to the most hardcore of old school platformer fan.

The graphics are old school, and kinda gives off an super mario vibe with the coin collecting. The game controls are fine, but checkpoints are far and few in between. Expand
