Critic Reviews for Ninja Senki DX
Even for a game priced at five dollars, Ninja Senki DX is a letdown. What could have been another classic addition to the Tribute Games lineup instead ends up feeling like any generic retro-inspired indie game. It's far from terrible, but with so many other great games out there that do a much better reminding you of the NES days, there's no need to pick up one that does a sub-par job at it. Save your nostalgic urges for something with more meat on it.
Ninja Senki DX revels in its own simplicity, distilling the basics of 2D platformers into a single, beginner-friendly crash course in the genre. It's not the fanciest or the most difficult, but every aspect of it is carefully calculated to provide a satisfying experience for players of all levels of experience.
Ninja Senki DX is an arcade game, and with that comes some baggage. For it's incredible controls, it has balancing issues that seem easily rectified. Cheap kills can be made up for by an incredible world, and there seems to be some of it here. For the rather low-key graphics, it still manages to work. It would be foolish to miss out on Ninja Senki DX's retro charm, but if you have a hefty backlog, it's not something you need to rush into. So, in summary, it should definitely be experienced by fans of the genre, but it can wait.
