Default Mini Ninijas Demo

Mini Ninjas Demo on Steam

Haven't tried it myself yet, but I saw this game a while ago and it looked very polished, visually anyway.

Definitely a console game by design, but still plays okay on a PC (visuals are great and who can go past the high pitched "Nananana-ninja!" as the enemies attack?!). Like with Assassin's Creed it's taken me a little time to get used to the controls (using keyboard/mouse), but I'm slowly getting there.

Colourful, chaotic martial arts-mixed-with-magic battles that appeals to the little kid in all of us (lots of bright colours, funny sounds, cool martial arts moves/magic, etc.).

Only annoying thing for me so far is that ESC (Escape) is listed as the key to use in order to exit some screens (eg., inventory), but if you use it then upon exiting that screen you'll often find yourself at the game's paused menu (as if you had hit ESC during normal gameplay).

Tip - if you have audio during the intro movie and the extras movie, but not during the game itself, download and install the latest OpenAL kit (thanks, Jig!); the standalone demo does this already, the demo available via Steam does not.

My boys, 10 & 11, will love this. They have played Little Fighter2 for the past couple of years and this game will appeal to the inner Ninja

My daughters and I have been following this game for a long time too. It looks like a lot of fun and the graphics are really nice.
