Mini Ninjas is set in a cartoonish version of medieval Japan and puts you into the role of a cute ninja. Your village was attacked by an Evil Samurai Warlord, who uses magic to turn the innocent animals into his loyal soldiers. There’s no killing and no blood; defeating your enemies will only make them disappear and return to their natural shape.
There are six playable characters, although Hiro is the default protagonist. Each of the ninjas has different skills and weapons. Some of the characters can use stealth to avoid the battle or to perform a wall-jump. There are also spells that allow you to fire lightning bolts at your opponents or to turn you into an animal for camouflage and sneaking.
The game is full of visual staples about East Asia, such as traditional Japanese lanterns and hats, architecture, bamboo groves, pandas, masked ninjas, and armored samurai. The “chibi” (baby-like) design of the characters, along with their comically high-pitched voices, make all these look like a light-hearted parody rather than actual stereotypes. There are also elements of Japanese mythology such as Tengu, the friendly magic bird people, who trade with the character, provide training, and offer quests.

A Game that's okay so far and I had a lot of Fun but apparently under certain Hardware, though sufficient performance, kept freezed ... Unfortunately for me a Mis-purchase on team:(

Mini Ninjas, is a very sweetly designed Game. You start out as a little Ninja in a Village and try to save your Friends. Very beautiful Graphics & great Gaming Experience in a Wonderful World. In addition to finding our ninja friends, we rescue a Lot of Animals, learn new Attaken, get Potions And you can just explore the Area. There are several boss opponents & a Strong Final Boss. In Yourself, a very great Game, which I can recommend to everyone! More Impressions can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uq3ktoWScbY&index=1&list=PL3rOO-gmXg7gbKvQcqd-2SFReQL9kuRI7

Find the Game has succeeded very well. Graphic, character and Level Design are very sweet. A nice Contrast to the Graphics of other Games that want to look as realistic as possible. The Control is simple and goes well by the Hand and the Level Of difficulty is not much Of a challenge. What a Pity I find only the short Playing Time of about 10 Hours. Personally, I would have liked more. I also missed a Co-op Mode. It is very suitable to go in search together with a Friend and it would certainly have been more Fun. All in All, however, I can highly recommend Mini Ninjas. Finally, a small side Note: If you don't have a Sound in the Game, you shouldn't moan right away, but rather throw the Google search at. It doesn't take 2 Minutes to find a simple Solution to this Problem. ;)

Hy her I think I have my first Reviewer in years to a Game and it's a shame that no posteive it is ... I know the Game from the Xbox and for €1,49€ you can take it quietly with it would not be there would be the Problem that it is unplayable at least with me I have a pretty Good PC and the Game is no longer too new and yet jerks and shrucks it in front of you I just had to give up after about 15min ... Various settings tested PC restart more games reboot without succeeding. As I like such Games tired there are not too much of on the PC from which I am very disappointed that I do not get it to run sensibly. I was really looking forward to it in front of everyone that it could have played my Daughter later and my Wife also so I have to give it back now without ever seeing the end ... Nevertheless, I recommend buying because the Error does not necessarily have to pay everyone and for the Price you can take a look at it. But you should already be amazed in the Videos that it jerks you can give it right back. A great game that doesn't work with me ... Cu Try
