Wow is this addicting. I should not have waited so long to pick this up. Watching videos doesn't really do this game justice. The thing is, the game makes you feel sooo bad*ss. Alot of people compare it to Ninja Gaiden, which is a good comparison. It is fast and furious. There are lots of awesome meta-game unlockables which is where the 'meat' of the game is. Achievements are all appropriate and really give alot of life to this game. It also lends itself really well to speedrunning.

Keep in mind that I would not recommend playing this without a controller. I played with the keyboard for a bit, which was fine, but ultimately the experience is much better with a controller.

If you like roguelites, this is a no brainer. I even recommend the cheap DLC.

This is a solid twitchy platformer to pick up and play for 10-20 minutes at a time. You descend a procedurally-generated tower while slashing enemies, jumping over spikes, and collecting items. The controls are super tight and fun to play with. There’s a short timer that you have to be constantly regenerating to stay alive, so you’re forced to move quickly and rely on your reflexes. It’s kind of intense. I sometimes turn off sound effects for a more zen platforming experience. Lots of unlockables and upgrades to keep bringing you back. Crisp graphics. Cool soundtrack. It’s just an all-around polished arcade game.

Super House of Dead Ninjas is a well executed retro-styled precision platformer. The lightning fast combat and sensitive controls can seem a bit unwieldy at first, but they ultimately lead to a uniquely adrenaline-charged "ninja" feel that only hurtling through the levels at a breakneck speed can create. There is a wealth of unlocks as well, the only problem being that after showering the player with new weapons and upgrades during the first few hours of gameplay they slow to a mere trickle. Add to that the unusual order in which upgrades unlock, and you have a recipe for potentially unsatisfying progression.

Still, the meat of the gameplay is, like a fine steak, rare and delicious. Although the game suffers from "roguelike repetition" the randomly generated levels and enemies each present unique obstacles which push a player's reflexes to the maximum as they adjust on-the-fly. Gamers who love this genre will find Super House of Dead Ninjas to be a superb entry with many hours of replayability as they race to survive long enough for that elusive high score.

Addictive, fast-paced, tons of unlocks to play around with and most of all, it's rewarding. The more you play, the more the game congratulates you with new weapons and upgrades. It puts up a challenge and it's unforgiving. Overall, a game for everyone to enjoy.
