Fun concept and I like the art style. Seemed really hard, but maybe I'm just tired. Great job.

That was fun, if really hard! I really like how the art style turned out for you. Sounds are a bit annoying, having a mute button never hurt anyone. :)

Holy shit I suck at it! Also I had some trouble finding where I was at first. Really like the use of minimalistic art style and the concept is very fun!

Simple but really really good! Maybe one of the best games.
I like the graphic style and the concept! Good work!

Granted, I died a lot. Always do in these games. But it was a lot of fun and just the right level of challenging. (Thank God there wasn't a death counter, eh?)

The puzzles were well thought out. The level, even if it was just the one, took long enough to master for it to last a while. The graphics style worked out really well and was mostly self-explanatory, which I think fits great into the theme.

The only problem I noticed was that it was too difficult to jump up or fall down in very narrow passages. I guess that one pixel or something must have been off or something. That got me killed a whole bunch of times, which is a shame and sort of frustrating.

I really liked that it was browser based and ran so flawlessly.

Great work!

Tight, controls felt spot on to me. The ninja was super and basically this is just ridiculously high quality for a short time-frame compo like this. A+

Fun little platoformer! I like the really simple graphics and the sound effects. It was a nice challenge to reach the end! Good job. :)

One of the best entries I've played so far. Really fun and challenging, yet fair. You also get some brownie points for using HTML5!

May 2, 2013 @ 9:55pm

Aw.. I realized right at the end that you needed loot and I couldn't escape the last room to go back and get it :/

domrein says ...
May 2, 2013 @ 10:03pm

Loved it. One of the best entries I've played so far. The difficulty ramp is pretty brutal at first, but not so hard that it's frustrating over all.

This was fun, cool game. The art is cool, and the AI is really nice, and transparent.

Prelucid says ...
May 3, 2013 @ 2:15am

That was harder than I thought it'd be. Great game!

Minobi... gotta' love that reference. 'Twas a good game overall, I just encountered a few minor bugs:

* Sometimes the player's run sprite would continue to be displayed even while they were standing still
* I occasionally had trouble dropping through the thin grey platforms; the down key seemed unresponsive

Nice graphics and gameplay. Minobi is fun for the whole family (or just one person, alternatively.)

Nice work! A fun and challenging game.

Really nice style. Took me a while to figure out a few things like that I can run as fast as the bullets. The second laser section was really hard initially. It'd be nice to not see the guards I already defeated respawn and to checkpoint every time I got loot.

wow really nice game.

May 3, 2013 @ 10:03pm

Love how much ninja-personality you were able to put in a 4x4 sprite! The level design is pretty tough, with a lot of timing involved, but it's fun and challenging. I eventually got pretty good at it, nimbly dodging the turrets and sneaking up on unsuspecting civilians!

This is great! But the first puzzle is quite hard :(

MinionStudios says ...

Super fun and quite challenging.

May 4, 2013 @ 7:18pm

Very nice and challenging game!! I like it very much! Add more levels!!

Man that was intense, very hard. I'd like to see someone speedrun that! :D great work!

Nice lo-fi style! But only 1 level? :P Also there are some bugs in the animation, sometimes you stay idle and it keeps playing the 'run' animation.

lorancou says ...
May 7, 2013 @ 1:35pm

Really cool and well balance ...

More level Needed !

May 7, 2013 @ 8:43pm

This game needs death counter so badly :)
It was challenging and fun.
Also i hit topmost switch through the wall. It's a bug, i guess.

Very minimalist but very immersive. I love the stylish.
Gameplay settings are good.

Very good game, incredible ninja animation with just 3 pixels.

Madball says ...

Cool, the controls are smooth, the gameplay is neat. Kinda repetitive, but it doesn`t last long.
Sometimes (the second time you jump on the darker platform) if you move at the wall standing on a darker platform and jump, you fall down.
Sometimes you kinds kill the enemy after you die. You respawn, but the enemy doesn`t. (Until you die again)
If you stand in the turret, it doesn`t harm you.
You can also press buttons through walls.

Love it! Reminds me of Bruce Lee on the ZX Spectrum, my favorite game when I was a kid.

Hitting a red dot and seeing a connected gun go dark and not shoot interested me.

Pros: Very nice graphics! Pretty good feel to the physics as well. =)
Cons: No blood!

Very nice, very lofi, totally awesome. Needs more levels however.!!

May 11, 2013 @ 8:43am

Great. Nice style, unique gameplay and the graphics is amazing. I liked the idea of one big level. perhaps it will be better if there are several big levels. Pretty hard to beat, but it is very very fun. 5/5

Great game ! I like the way I constantly went from "meh, how the hell I am suppose to do that?" to "Oh, in fact that was quite easy".

Nice work.

May 15, 2013 @ 7:42pm

Cool game, great style and fits the theme perfectly... :)

Pretty good take on a stealth game. Liked the visual style and would definitely love to see some more levels in the future.
