Use your ninja skills and run as far as you can.

A game inspired by Canabalt and made in trendy pixel style.
Comes with achievements and has a nice learning curve.
I hope you'll like it.

Fun, but way too easy :S

I love the concept, I really do. But there's definately too much control over the speed. I takes all the difficulty out of the game. Getting a high score is as much about how long it takes for you to get bored as it is how skilled you are. I gave up once I got all the achievements (in about three tries)

Well that was original...

First off, I was hoping this was going to hold the spirit of canabalt but add things like enemies and whatnot. You tried but ultimately it was a lot of unpolished features, and considering you didn't even make you own ninja graphics, taking them from Seifer Tim's flixel tutorial, I can see the amount of effort you actually put into this game...

You right, Canabalt has completely different feel. And I love it. But I didn't try to clone Canabalt. Moreover I was concentrated on making a game with more fun than tense. That's why I added a lot of fun stuff like shooting, shield, speeding up, speeding down, achievements.

When I saw Darthlupi's ninja sptite my thoughts was like "omg, it's amazing, i can't do better". That's why I asked Darthlupi's permission to use it in my game. Big thanks to him!

Anyway, thank you for checking out my game!

It's okay

The game itself is alright but it's just not interesting and the platforms and enemies keep repeating and the swinging bit is extremely CRAP!

Next time make a similar game that is more interesting and at least has actual BOSSES in it and PLEASE FOR GOODNESS SAKE MAKE A GAME THAT'S GOT LEVELS IN IT! and some more obstacles would be NICE

YailenkoGames responds:

Thanks for checking out my game! But this is a runner game. If you want level-based game with bosses you should probably play Mario instead.

Shooting is worthless because you can just speed up constantly to hit things, and there's no challenge at all to the game. I ran for 10k before I just decided to kill myself, and it was never tense at any point. It wasn't really fun, either, because it didn't feel like I was actually getting anywhere, unlike Canabalt, where the speeding up at least made it feel like you were making progress.

YailenkoGames responds:

There is no game on Earth that can compete with Canabalt. :) I love it too. Congratulations on 10k and mastering Ninja Run! You don't feel tense and shooting is wothless for you because you've mastered the game. It's very cool! Thank you for playing.
