Ninja Miner 2

Starchild Apparently, being a ninja isn't all it's cracked up to be. Long night shifts, no social security, and all the sneaking around gets really tiresome. It's no wonder that ninjas want to change their career after a while. And although mining doesn't seem like the obvious choice, our little protagonist seemed quite happy with it in Ninja Miner. Now we meet him again in Ninja Miner 2, the new platform puzzler from SilenGames, still as busy as ever. His job is to collect gems and stars, then advance to the next stage, and you can move him with the mouse or the [arrow] keys. Ninja Miner 2 uses the same basic mechanics and level design as its predecessor, meaning that the ninja moves in one direction as long as he doesn't hit an obstacle. Obstacles are numerous and diverse in maze-like levels, from walls to spikes to Halloween-themed enemies.

Ninja Miner 2Luckily, this time around you have three lives per level, so one encounter with a rather unpleasant cave bat won't undo all your hard work. Another life-threatening addition is water, which covers parts of some stages; you can control it by pressing switches or swim through if you find a snorkel. The exit door opens when you've collected all the gems, though you can also collect the three stars or try to beat the additional challenges, which definitely contribute to the replay value. Ninja Miner 2 has managed to keep the playful arcade spirit of the first installment while introducing more demanding puzzles and more elaborate levels. It's a delightfully entertaining firecracker of a game, and this sequel hasn't nearly exhausted all the gameplay possibilities, so we could hope for another episode somewhere down the line. After all, the little ninja seems perfectly happy being a miner and certainly wouldn't mind coming back for more.

Play Ninja Miner 2


Good puzzles and enjoyable with a few quibbles: no option to zoom out to see the whole level makes for a lot of otherwise unnecessary re-do's; the levels are all fairly easy to complete, but this is a bit tapered by the "quests" (challenges); the quest on level 30 seems impossible (80 move limit), or maybe it's just me (that can't be it, can it? |+}).
Nice little diversion, overall.


I can't get it to load in both firefox and chrome (adblocker isn't active in


Loved the original Ninja Miner but not so much this 'sequel' because there's no zoom option. Hard to tell if all the points have been scored and often cannot see 'enemies' so avoiding them is pure chance, not skill.

I'm loving these Ninja games (Nijan painter and Nina miner). They have mobile versions now too.

Supermuzhik> Tricky Supermuzhik is an arcade-action sorta-shooter game by Aimar where the titular hero proves to be much better at "defeating evil" than "protecting the innocent", as he uses his telekinetic vision to fling the latter into the former.
