Evildoers beware, Ninja-Pi-Ro from Pencilkids is on the prowl! That's Ninja-Pirate-Robot by the way, the team starring in this point-and-click puzzle adventure. Apparently, a rare blue diamond has been stolen, and it's up to the titular characters to save the day using all their combined abilities. The pirate is strong and swarthy, the ninja is swift and silent, and the robot is scientific and... uh... ssssss... a robot. Look, this isn't rocket science people.
The idea is that each character is good for certain situations, and you can cycle through your team at any time by clicking on the transparent circle on them. Other transparent circles will be visible onscreen if you're controlling the correct character, and you can click on them to interact. The key is figuring out what character needs to be used in which order to proceed. Since most hotspots will only show if you're playing with the correct hero, it's a simple matter to cycle through them in each area to see what's missing.
Aside from not being accurate, since history has proven robots, ninja, and pirates cannot peacefully coexist, Ninja-Pi-Ro is also really easy. Even the puzzles Robot has to solve probably won't hang you up, and trying everything with everyone in any area takes hardly any time at all. As long as you pay attention to your environment, the solution will always be within your grasp. The game isn't too long, and will probably run you between fifteen minutes to half an hour depending on trial and error, and whether you spend time hunting down all one hundred coins hidden throughout the game. The coins don't serve any purpose other than to deduct clicks from your final score, since finishing the game in the least amount of mouse clicks will, as you know, cause you to win the internets. Do not fail me.
The end result is a fun, simple puzzle adventure with Pencilkids' signature cute style and charm. There's no way to lose the game, since using the incorrect character is only a temporary setback, and for Pirate electrocution is just a minor irritation. Is there a sequel on the horizon? Hope so! Maybe next time the team will meet up with their arch-nemesis... Samurai-Naval Officer-Alien!
