Ninjin: Clash of Carrots Reviews
Overall though and Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is an interesting game. It brings a unique – albeit rather dull – story, and a rarely seen gameplay style to Xbox One
Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is an action packed experience. While the story is barely interesting, the humorous moments are worth a giggle or two. The gameplay is simple enough that virtually anyone can enjoy, and its highly replayable. It’s challenging, but fun in a way that makes you want one more go. With 20+ hours of gameplay, and the inclusion of both online and couch co-op, Pocket Trap’s debut effort is worth your time.
I’m very much on the fence about this one, admittedly, as buying new equipment that allows you to effortlessly carve through waves upon waves of enemies can be incredibly rewarding, and a lot of the underlying ideas here are solid. The execution just trips up often enough that Ninjin: Clash of Carrots‘ attempts at variance start to feel like unfair gimmicks.
Ninjin Clash of Carrots is a blast in co-op, but difficulty spikes may put you off the challenge on your own.
Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is a really fun and exciting side-scrolling beat-em-up game with a hint of a Schmup. You won't have an easy time as you traverse throughout the map in pursuit of the evil Shogun behind stealing all of your towns carrots, all whilst spending said carrots on buying yourself new gear! A lot of times you'll find yourself overwhelmed by the constant barrage of enemies which come at you from all positions, just remain cool and calm and find their weaknesses. The art style and music perfectly suit this hidden gem and I hope more people pick it up and try it out for themselves!
Ninjin struck me as just a little too frantic for its own good. Co-op is good fun and there's certainly plenty to unlock but, at £12.99 this might be just outside impulse buy range for most people.
