  • 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]

    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.

There are 3 levels in it (4 if you include the training mission). However, this isn't too bad if you can get the game for a cheap price. The graphics look like they're from an average Nintendo 64 game, and the sword motion controls barely work. (although you can get through the game by using ninja stars) the enemies are cupcakes, jam sponges, wasps, and other sweet snacks. In each level, the objective is to collect electric rods (I don't know why that happens in a gingerbread and cake universe) so that you can activate a time machine for Ninjabread Man to escape to the next level. The game is about 2 hours long (with no additional modes) and has no storyline outside of being plunged into Candy Land to fight off enemy cakes. Ninjabread Man is a bad game that can be enjoyed, but only if you are in the mood for killing sugary food. Expand

    True crap. Just bad. Impossible to finish the game without crying in frustration. Plus comes the worst camera in a video game. shoddyTrue 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.

    COULDN'T THEY TRY A BIT HARDER!!!???

    This game runs on the same engine as another terrible game, Anubis II. The controls and lameness are identical. AVOID!!!

    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. forNeed 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
