Classic physics games are lots of fun, and they have thousands of fans all over the world. Games like Angry Birds have taken the mobile gaming world by storm and they have witnessed a massive success.
Although not as good looking or diverse as Angry Birds, the game we will talk about today is still quite good. I must admit I didn’t think much of it at first, but once I started playing, I noticed that it became quite interesting, not so much for the game’s features or gameplay, but for the satisfaction of getting the highest score.
Shuriken Ninja for Windows 8, Windows 10
The game’s menu does not have out of the ordinary graphics or other content, like the game we’ve reviewed yesterday, Judge Dredd vs. Zombies, but it does offer easy access to all the content of the game. The game’s objective is to hit all the balloons with your ninja stars, and like all other games that are based on the same principle, you have to do it with as few shots as possible.
In terms of content, there are four categories of games. The first three are normal puzzle-shooting, each having 63 different levels that range from easy to impossibly hard! The last category is the Target Challenge, where you have to shoot as many balloons as possible in the time you are given.
Apart from its many levels, the game offers a level creator, where users can create their own unique levels with what elements they want. The creator has different styles for each of three normal categories. Also, users that want to share their creations can upload them to the game’s server, from where they can be downloaded by any other player.
This brings us to the last feature of the game, which is the Level Downloader. Here, players can find a huge number of levels and level packs that they can enjoy. Although the levels are pretty well designed (at least the ones I’ve tried), I did encounter some issues when trying to load some levels and the game crashed. Apart from this, it all worked flawlessly!
Shuriken Ninja is a great way to pass your time, and thanks to its level creation feature and the possibility to download other levels, players can enjoy the game for a long period!
