With a feel somewhere between a casual tablet game and a console-like experience, this is simply a different experience
The first game that came to mind when getting started with this somewhat unusual action title was a game called Shadow Bug, which also had a slightly different take on action from the norm. In Shukuchi Ninja you’ll effectively try to fling your character around in order to clear enemies through a few different means, avoid traps, and grab whatever you can to help yourself out. There’s no question it can be a bit challenging at times, as the unique control mechanics can tend to make your trajectory and speed a bit tough to predict as once your ninja begins spinning around countering his inertia can be tricky. That said, if you embrace this budget action title’s unusual feel there are plenty of levels, and even some bosses, to challenge you to master it the best you can.
