Customer Reviews


I loved playing this game and beating it over and over back in the day. The only problem is the On screen controls. Especially when you have to hold the up direction a lot to grab the pipes on level 4. Half the time he doesn't grab and you fall into the water. It was challenging with a controller but just frustrating with touch screen controls. Not really their fault since it is a touch screen device, and you can shrink the screen down so your thumbs arent in the way, But some games are just better with a controller and always will be. Still a good game though.

Totally Worth it, thanks Sega

This game runs exactly like the original on my iPhone 5! the music and sound effects are exactly the same as the original but the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because its not optimized for the iPhone 5, I hope they make an update real soon for this and then I'll gladly give it 5 stars :)

Pure Ninja Magic.

They really don't make games like they used to. This is probably one of the best 2D action games of all time. Worth the price and download and a great substitute for Shinobi on the 3DS (since no one will buy one just so they could play the newest Shinobi anyway)

The game is pretty challenging especially at higher difficulties and the later levels can make you rage, but if you're hardcore, you'll learn these levels and boss fights inside and out, and master them like a true ninja.

Great music, challenging boss fights, stylish ninja moves, and awesome ninja magic. All the ingredients for an amazing Ninja game.

Long Live SEGA
