JamesNano NinjaAvenge your master and take on the tower of death using only one finger in the epic Nano Ninja!

If you have played the suitably named One Button Bob, the concept behind Nano Ninja will be as familiar as an old set of Gi. Every stage has a specific challenge that you need to overcome by using a one-button action available for that level. For example, in the first level your mouse click throws a ninja star, perfect for dispatching the enemy character charging towards you. In the next level you have to hold the mouse button to pause before walking into laser barriers. The third level: jump over a crate of explosives. At a later stage you have to stop at the right intervals before a dropping spear uses you as shish-kebab ingredients, while in another you need to hold down the key to determine how far you can jump or wall-run to avoid flying projectiles. After running the gauntlet of levels, later using the same obstacles with more complexity, you face off against the game boss character.

The game mechanics are, at least in terms of the obstacles, nearly identical to One Button Bob, as are the consequences: you die and have to retry that specific level. The real challenge is to see how fast you can complete the tower and in the fewest number of mouse clicks possible. Apart from submitting your high score, you can also compete against the ghost character from your previous run. It's a challenge of concentration and timing, packaged with retro graphics and an air of simplicity befitting the game-play style. There is no doubt that sufficient practice will awaken the mouse-click Shinobi in you.

Fun at first, but it's so full of fake difficulty it just isn't worth playing.

Nice game and nice review. I'm stuck in the dragon level. Fast clicking only gets me halfway.

First try: 5:04, 203 clicks.

I had much better luck using the keyboard than the mouse button. This allowed me to get past the dragon level by

using both hands to tap on the space bar.

Huh, that's weird, the game was really easy for me. Maybe some different mouse configuration or something!

I actually managed to get all the way to the final floor, but before I could even read the text that appeared, Shockwave froze up. Incredibly frustrating.

First try took me 05:51.2 with 184 clicks.

@Infant Tyrone:

When you get to the final floor, the game saves your score on your computer - I got a little popup dialog asking for permission. Maybe that caused your browser to freeze up somehow.

The final text is:

Congratulations!!!

You've avenged your master
in ##:##.# with ### clicks

Now you can try to beat your own shadow

Play again

And then if you play again, you can see a faint shadow of your previous play through as you play.

Thanks, chipmunk... It didn't freeze for me, but I'd accidentally pressed spacebar as he climbed the stairs, so it skipped through that screen (showing it momentarily) and then restarting as if I'd clicked "play again".

I got about 5 minutes, and 473 clicks, I think. I used X at first, and then noticed I could use the spacebar. From the beginning, it seemed easier than using the mouse...
