Ninja Striker! is the Sega Master System game of your dreams you never knew you needed on your Nintendo Switch. Easy to pick up, nearly impossible to master flawlessly and thus like a true ninja it will take some dedication and discipline while you keep coming back to its charming mains quest. In either docked or portable mode, for five minutes or two hours this is a pure combo/score chaser that will keep you hooked to the screen for generations of ninjas to come.
Ninja Strikers doesn't have much in the way of story, but it's retro design and fierce difficult both pay a fine homage to legendary old school games.
Ninja Striker! is a fun 2D action platformer that those of you looking for an arcade style release on Nintendo Switch are going to dig. If you're into games that challenge you to beat your high score, that ask that you enter a Zen state of mind to find the best route to combo your way through its stages, then this is exactly what you need!
While this won't be one you play for hours on end, it's perfect for those looking for bite-sized fast paced action.
I guess Ninja Striker! is a platform game, with rhythm mechanics. It could also be a title that just requires you hit the attack button at certain points to breeze through levels before reaching the real fun in the boss fight. If you don’t care about scores or stars, the game loses so much appeal, because the ‘story’ is non-existent. This will appeal to perfectionists and maybe speedrunners who want to showcase skills, but it left me wanting so much more.
