Weekend Download

AdamBThe introduction to this weekend download has been stolen by a ninja and replaced with a depressed bubble. Sorry for the inconvenience. If you happen to see a ninja, please attempt to stop him and ask for this paragraph back. That would be very much appreciated.

ninjah.gifNinjah (Windows, 2.6MB, free) - With gameplay remarkably similar to the recently reviewed Neon Maze, this takes the gameplay element of not being able to touch things that are a different colour to yourself and applies it not to maze-like-strategy, but to the deft stylings of ninja ability. Either jump, grapple or — using the power of a machine gun — launch your way through the host of included levels before indulging the oh-so user friendly level editor.

Though some levels will become trial and error, depending on your ability to recognize the often different colour changes. This small quibble is dwarfed by the games level design - each being just a single screen and scalable with a combination of your three given methods of movement - which is truly impressive and contained within such a small download. But, basically, its a stealthy, colour matching, action platformer with ninjas! What's not to like?

plobb.jpgPlobb! (Windows mirror) (Mac/Win, 6.7MB, free) - This overly-colourful arena shooter plays like a mix between the classic arcade game Asteroids and a cheap disco. Trek towards the enemy bubbles and spit at them to deflate them. As their size reduces, they split into increasingly smaller bubbles until they pop completely or drop a pickup. The key to success in this game is: Unhaltingly, unceasingly, risk your life and blobby limbs to get as many pick-ups as possible. They are all good and some are much more impressive than others - just be weary of Old Man Time, who ticks away before turning the bubbles around you into instant toxic death.

tentonninja.gifTen Ton Ninja (Windows, 19MB, free) - Did you know it's awesome to be a ninja? You use a grappling hook to flip and swing your way throughout the sky, snagging magical gems, raking up killer combos, and killing enemies with the fantastic power of your vast buttocks. Sort of like if Spider-Man wasn't a whiner, and hung out with cooler heroes. Man, Tom Cruise needs to make a movie about ninja instead of samurai. There's a level editor in addition to the 22 levels that come with the game, so you can create and download your own. The gameplay is simple, but can get pretty frenetic.

I'm about to download these. I am a fan of platform/ninja style games (N, and such.) so I think I'll be pleased by these.

Also, I think I saw that ninja with the paragraph, he gave it to me, but it was all scrambled up. D:


My sophos anti-virus detected "Mal/Behav-016" in Ninjah.exe. I don't know if I should be concerned.

I can't get the windows download for plobb to work, it only gets 1.6 MB, and the installer complains that the downloaded file is incomplete or corrupted (this is on IE and Firefox, WinXP).


Kris, neither my Avira nor Malware Bytes or Online Armor (which is the most finicky HEYTHISISUSPICIOUS program in the world, thank you) detected anything for me in these files before or after install. A search for Mal/Behav-016 turned up several false positives by Sophos. I don't know a lot about that particular software, but is it maybe that it's just very sensitive? At any rate, my computer hasn't sprouted tentacles yet. Any other virus or malware scanners have a problem?

Ninjah is cool! Here's a small hint if you're having trouble:

Remember to press space to slow down. It makes movement much more precise!

Ninjah is awesome, and I've been playing it since it came out. Really one of the best freeware games out there.

For some reason, all I can play in ninjah is the first three levels. Any advice on why I seem to be helpless to get this game to unlock the other levels?

Fuzzyevil May 2, 2009 7:08 PM

Yeah, only the first three are working for me as well.

Fuzzyevil May 2, 2009 7:11 PM

Actually, try switching graphics modes. That fixed it for me.

Wasn't Ten Ton Ninja already featured in Jayisgames?


Be weary?


I had the same problem where I could only play the first three levels. I restarted the game and that fixed it.
Ninjah gets really hard. I didn't find much need for luck, but you certainly need a good head for physics. I'm on level 44 and I need a break.
PS: After beating a level, playing it again and watching the ghost is very rewarding.


Ninjah is for Linux too...
But because the original homepage of the game does not exist, and it cannot be found on net... ninjah for linux is lost forever.


Just finihsed Ninjah, great game.

Didn't realize that the spacebar slowed the game until I came here afterwards. Might be handy, but the game is certainly possible and rewarding without it.

The physics in Ninjah are absolutely idiotic, making it a complete waste of a 3 minute download.
