Ninjadoodle's point-and-click puzzle game Shurizzle is about that most wondrous of solutions to all life's problems... the shuriken. Can't find a seat on the bus? Shuriken'd! Favourite show got cancelled? Shuriken'd! Cereal got too soggy before you were done eating it? Totally shuriken'd! Ask your doctor about what shuriken can do for you, but in the meantime, your goal here is to make a shuriken in each of the game's twenty levels. Each stage looks similar, but presents a different twist on its formula to assemble your heart's desire. All you have to do to play is click and experiment, figuring out the mechanic in each level that will reveal that pointy metallic goodness.
While most Ninjadoodle games tend to be gleefully over the top in silliness and colour, Shurizzle is a much more restrained affair with its simple colour scheme and presentation. It's a minimalistic approach that actually works in the game's favour, since its funky soundtrack and remix-style levels continue the theme. For the most part, Shurizzle isn't that difficult, and after a few clicks on each stage you'll probably have figured out how to solve it in the blink of an eye. It feels like it's designed for some zen-like relaxation on a coffee break, a simple yet satisfying mental prep rather than a full brain workout. It's exactly as polished and stylish as you've come to expect from Ninjadoodle, making it a fine homage indeed to nature's deadliest predator... the shuriken.
