[prMac.com] London, UK - Immunity Studios today is pleased to announce their upcoming, try before you buy game, NinjaGuy 1.0 for iOS, where players control NinjaGuy, an arrogant, wise-cracking Ninja assassin. Featuring exciting bosses, environments, swordplay, and quests, the game has been designed as a step on the path for each player to realize their inner Ninjaness. Always ready with a quick verbal taunt or a dose of subtle Ninja wisdom, the hero battles many foes in this episodic, single-player action game. The humorous dialogue is central to the gaming experience, each character having their own overly dramatic delivery of lines, which also appear onscreen as subtitles. NinjaGuy is an ideal, fast-paced game for those who may truly be ready to master the skills necessary to achieve Ninjahood.
From a 3/4 overhead view, the camera follows NinjaGuy wherever he moves. Players control his movement with a floating joypad that moves him horizontally and vertically. The position of the control is adjustable on the left side of the screen. On the right side are three action buttons: Attack, Whirlwind, and Jump that can also be repositioned in realtime without affecting gameplay. In addition, the hero can throw Ninja stars when the player swipes their finger across the screen, while the innovative "screen-to-space" Shuriken engine calculates the user's intended target in 3D space regardless of camera angle, offering near pixel-perfect touch accuracy. The gameplay is fast, action based, and displays NinjaGuy's balance, accuracy, stamina, and strength. Hundreds of attackers can be killed in less than a minute.
The game has an Arena mode and a Story mode. The Story mode allows gamers to engage in an ongoing campaign. The game comes with two episodes. The first episode contains a single level, the Ninja Dojo, and is designed purely to teach the user how to play. The second episode, Rise of Ninja Guy, is where the story really kicks off, with the ultimate goal of defeating a gargantuan Minotaur and finally earning their Ninjaness. There are five levels in this episode and each level unlocks a special Arena. The Arenas allow Ninjas to test their Ninjaness and see how many enemies they can defeat in a set time. Additional episodes will be available as an in-app purchase.
