A Ninja Dude: Ninja school is a throwing game app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It was created by Jkhaun and is free through the free app a day program and I strongly suggest that if it is not currently free when you see this that you do not buy this game. This app lets you throw ninja stars badly at a variety of inanimate targets. This is something that is not hard to find in the iTunes app store and this is an interesting game but the controls really make it hard to use.
There are just a handful of things which are absolutely required in order for a game to work at all and a number of thing that do not really matter. The graphics can be weak and it doesn’t really matter, the idea can be shallow and it can still work, even the game play itself can be moderate but the one thing that has to work is the controls because if that is even a little off the game simply is not worth playing at all and that is where a ninja Dude; ninja school has its problem because while it is fun idea and not horrible controls they are bad enough that it makes it very difficult to actually enjoy.
When you open this app you will begin by choosing between the class room and the survival mode. In both you are throwing ninja stars by swiping your finger across the screen. In the class room you have two different types of levels the first has dart boards appearing from the top and remaining static, in the other you have objects that roll across the screen from side to side. In the survival mode you have both appearing and can miss up to three before you lose. In both of them you need to hit the targets reasonably accurate but the problem is that the targeting does not feel as if it is actually accurate.
The graphics and sound of this app are reasonably for the iPhone though i’d like to see more interesting targets. You can listen to your own music while using this app.
The controls of this app are by far the greatest weakness of this app but the truth is that with just a little tweaking I think that it could be pretty good.
This app gets two out of five stars.
