controls just need to be tweeked, not use using my right to move. other than that, not bad.

super hard, no checkpoints and no continue, a good game with great music, but no learning curve and a bit on the impossible side

This was a pleasant, brief distraction. Ninja girl fighting through aliens. I can work with that.
The controls were a little iffy at times, but it wasn't a deal-breaker. One thing that got me irritated was that you seemed to be unable to run and throw at the same time. However the art was cool in a pixelated style. and the music was awesome. I DID like the callback to the old school Ninja Gaiden's invincible fire wheel.

Two issues I noticed:
One: There doesn't seem to be any point of purpose for the roll. Okay, it lets you move through enemies without taking damage, but now you have a hostile on your rear. its just as easy to melee your way past them.
Two: I noticed that in the moments between when you died, and the start of your next life you could still throw knives. It didn't seem to do much apart from reduce the number of knives I had, but it still seems to be a bit of a bug.

Bottom line: Not flawless, but there is definitely more good here than bad. Keep it up!

Thanks so much for the constructive review. I appreciate you playing my game :)

Pros: Nice, good game, fun game, nice graphics and storyline.

Cons: Flawed controls, jumping is too large for small jumps, doesn't register at edges sometimesx, and character is too herky jerky. Finished final boss and the game just hung on the end box text area.

knobbywood responds:

Great feedback! I'll look into the issue after the end boss. Thanks for playing my game :)

Really enjoyed playing this game. Cute little ninja girl hackin' and slashin' through this alien platformer. I had a lot of fun once I got used to the controls. Music is high-paced fun, narrator is refreshing and a comforting touch. Great pixel art, fun play. =)
