A wonderful game to get, perfect for any fan of old SNES action games of frantic action and pace.
Challenging, but after time it becomes easy, luckily there is a harder mode for the true ending. Then an even harder mode to get out of DLC (on sale now). Finally a never ending mode to go for high score or just because you are having so much fun.
Small tasks to do in a game or through games that challenge you to do better (or just keep playing) to unlock items that can help you out. All optional for the most part.
Numerous weapon and bombs to try out as you unlock them. Kill dead ninjas with a handgun or a light saber or a boomerang and plenty more.
Behead a giant chicken.
Smooth action all the way down in the best side scrolling action game that the SNES never got.
It's fast and frantic, driving down numerous floors of a huge tower or through a hell like dimension, killing or avoiding enemies in such a hectic pace the actual SNES would never have been able to process it fast enough. For the player, you can get in just such a groove that you barely notice the speed as it feel just right.
However for those that want to take their time, it has enough leeway once you get good enough to take your time to kill everything with a variety of weapons so you can go at a slow speed. You will still need to collect a time power up to reset a clock ticking down, but outside of the harder modes, it's not worrisome at all.
Unsure though? Well why not try the original game for free, House Of Dead Ninjas.http://games.adultswim.com/house-of-dead-ninjas-action-online-game.html
