Ratings and Reviews


Neat Game

Not a lot to it, but it's a very fun arcade style game with an interesting twist. The pirate/ninja theme would have been better suited for 2007, but I'm probably alone in thinking that :)


I like it but...

Can u add the option for a button that flips the screen because I hate having to keep turning my phone. Takes away from the gameplay imo. Please add this feature.
