Ninjin: Clash of Carrots Reviews
A quirky and charming beat-em-up with plenty of variety, strategy and humour. If the challenge doesn't put you off, you'll find yourself having having a great time.
Ninjin: Clash of Carrots' decent gameplay and lovely graphics make for an enjoyable experience, and there's enough differences between the characters and with weapon customisations to keep you playing. The completionist in me could spend days trying to unlock them all but the button masher in me just wants to pick up whatever is at hand and whack enemies. It's an addictive title with great replayability.
Ninjin: Clash of Carrots starts out as a silly, colorful beat 'em up, then takes a dark turn down a surprisingly frustrating and challenging path.
The game is cute and looks great, but thanks to its control scheme, isn't very fun to play.
Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is an enjoyable and fast-paced beat'em-up that brings to the Nintendo Switch some of the aspects that made this genre extremely popular in previous decade. It does not go all the way through, as Ninjin can become very repetitive and without the same charm of the genre's classics.

Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is deceptively simple. There is enough depth to give players motivation to get better or try different things, though not enough to change the core experience. Even though the graphics are cute, there isn't much that stands out. Combine this with challenging enemies and deeper mechanics and you have an interesting experience. It's perfect if you're looking for something different to play locally or just like the genre, without there being a real hook for anyone else.
Overall, Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is a fantastic little game to pick up and play.
Ninjin; Clash of Carrots is funny and cute. It is an evolution of the classic endless runner for smartphones, with more contents and a lot of weapons and customization suitable for the playable characters.

Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is an absolute joy to play. With a sharp sense of humor, surprisingly deep gameplay, and a wealth of content to enjoy, this is one giant leap for bunnykind.
Clash of Carrots had the potential to be a real diamond in the rough, but it quickly becomes apparent that it's not when its novelty begins to fade.
Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is a nice little game with lots of replayability.
Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is a kooky ride through feudal Japan in search of carrots. It's fast, it's fun, and it's great with two players. Give it a go if you're looking for some cartoon-y action with a friend.
Ninjin: Clash of Carrots tries so hard be like old time Beat 'em Up titles, and even tries to change the genre's formula by using Endless Runner mechanics, but it has failed in both, and the final result is a shallow, repetitive، boring and incomplete Beat 'em Up title.

Its final boss is destined to prevent all but the most dedicated of players from truly finishing it, but the journey there is so enjoyable that most won't care. Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is so unique that you can't help but give it some slack.
Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is a very enjoyable, simple and fun experience you can take on at any time you want a little rush. With quite a few hours worth of gameplay to dive into, if you are looking for a colorful action beat 'em up with a twist, then Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is a solid choice.
Ninjin was a surprise title that I had a great time with. Both local and online coop modes will allow more people to join in on this adventure and win back their carrots from the Mole Shogun. If you are looking for a fun game with silly humor and quick gameplay, give Ninjin a shot.
Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is out now on PS4, XBox One, Nintendo Switch and Steam. Do you think Ninjin and his ninja skills have done enough to sell you on his adventure? Let us know in the comments, or on Twitter, and check back for more coverage of titles like this and Japanese games too.
Stylish presentation and quirky fun are Ninjin: Clash of Carrots's standout selling points. Retro graphics and an eccentric storyline are the heart and soul of the experience, even if the script is at times frustratingly over-the-top. Ultimately, Ninjin holds up as a mostly fun experience, but its co-op modes, amusing story, and enemy variety fail to overpower an over-simplicity that lets it down.
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.
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!
