Get ready to tune up your coffee-ninja skills, you will need them in this hardcore platformer! Super Hyperactive Ninja is a fast-paced hyper-caffeinated action-platformer in 2D, designed with those who want a real tough challenge and speedrunners in mind. The evil Shogun has stolen all the coffee from the secret ninja village of Kohinomura, recover it before you fall asleep! You will play as Kohimaru, the last of the Coffee-Nin, to defeat the Shogun's army of evil ninjas and samurai, and his great yokai generals. Save your fellows and recover the Legendary Coffee, which it's said to grant infinite energy to the one who takes it whole without milk. Use the power of caffeine to enter Hyperactive Mode, to run faster and kill enemies, but use it wisely! You won't be able to change direction while in Hyperactive Mode, and it drains your energy faster. Your energy is limited, and must be recharged with the coffees you find in the levels. If you run out of caffeine, its GAME OVER! Race against your cruelest enemy: SLUMBER! Features: - More than 50 levels of fast paced hyperactive action - Difficult and challenging, but fair - Speedrun friendly - Discover new ways to play and secret paths using the unlockable items and characters - Hidden 2-player fighting mode - Guest characters from awesome indie games

Super Hyperactive Ninja fits in the realm of Super Meat Boy-style platformers, but has its own touches added in. Having to keep an eye on the caffeine meter while balancing the use of Hyperactive mode forces you to think strategically. The challenging nature can be fun and frustrating, but it's worth the time.

Super Hyperactive Ninja has a lot to offer fans of the platforming genre thanks to a well-balanced approach present in most levels and boss battles.

Super Hyperactive Ninja is a great example of what happens when good concepts meet bad implementation; the coffee theme and Hyperactive Mode are both interesting things that could have potential if explored properly, but Super Hyperactive Ninja doesn't do so. Cheap level design, uninspired visuals, and poor controls make this a game that's difficult to recommend, but moments of enjoyable gameplay can still be found for those who look hard enough. Even so, there's no shortage of excellent platformers on the eShop at the moment, so you'd be best served passing on this one. If you're looking for a challenging, retro-inspired side scrolling ninja game, go play The Messenger instead.

Super Hyperactive Ninja has a simple and silly premise that results in a funny, fast-paced game. It's not complicated, but it is challenging even to keep you engaged level after level.
