++ Highly responsive gameplay, perfect for speed-running.
+ Frantic action. Good variety of enemies and bosses.
+ Randomly generated levels guarantee a fresh experience for each consecutive run.
+ Great variety of unlockable items, upgrades, weapons and other goodies.
+ Perfect balance between tension build up and carnage.
+ 3 difficulty modes, each with their own specific treats and handicaps.

- No multiplayer support.

This game is an absolute must have. If you have skipped previous sales, by all means add this one to your wishlist so you can get it for a cheap price once it gets a big discount (or gets bundled) in the future.

Super House of Dead Ninjas is an Arcade title that puts your reflexes to the test. You have to drop all the way to the bottom of an evil tower filled with deadly traps, mobs and boss fights. Each tower you run through is randomly generated. There are new weapons and items that can be unlocked by meeting certain requirements. A timer keeps the tension present all the time; if you let it drop to 0, you'll lose a live, however there are items that will let you either freeze or reset the counter.

I have played this game for over 20 hours and I still haven't gotten tired of it. It is so good! If only it allowed multiplayer runs or challenges. Oh well, maybe for the sequel.

Get this hidden gem. You will definitely enjoy it.

You basically run and cut everything in your way.
With the right timing, you'll feel like a total badass!
After a while playing, all you'll see is blur. And that's good.
This game offers a very satisfying experience!
Also, you'll get more than your money's worth.

My favorite platformer at the moment. Fast paced ninja action with blast processing. Lots of variety in weapons, enemies and a randomly generated tower every time.

I love the pace of this game. It is so ♥♥♥♥ing fast if you manage to stay in rage mode and it feels very satisfying to dodge the traps and finish several enemys. In addition some of the enemys have the name tags of people in your friend list which is kind of irrelevant but still adds something to the game. Boss fights are ok, but there could be a greater variety. All in all i can recommend this game, i realy enjoyed playing it!

A classic blend of ninjas, platformer, speed, and difficulty. All in all one of my all time favorite games because of the replay value and the content it offers.

This is my favorite game that I bought during the Summer Sale. Fast paced and challenging, with perfect controls! Controls can make or break a platformer and these are just great. You move and attack so quickly, but you feel in total control of your ninja the entire time.

You need very good reflexes for this game and the ability to watch a lot of things at the same time. Enemies can react VERY quickly to your character. Good thing the game has a great built in mechanic. When you kill a lot of enemies in a row, in quick succession, you will activate your Rage ability. You become invincible during this and kill everything in 1 hit, not counting bosses.

The game also has an awesome unlock system. I don't know the exact number, but somewhere around 75 different unlockable equipment, abilities and powerups are in the game. I really like this unlock system, because the better you do in the game, the better unlocks you will get access to for your next run. Expect to die a ton when first starting out, then when you start getting access to the upgraded equipment and things, you will get a lot further and eventually complete your first run through the tower.

This game can be beaten in around 4 minutes (go watch the speedrun on Youtube, it looks amazing)! The replay value is extremely high though. Lots of different modes to play, including a boss rush and speedrun mode. The unlockables will keep you busy for a long time. Leaderboards to try and improve your best times and scores. Not to mention the game is just extremely fun to play. With a very low price (pick up the great DLC also!), theres no reason not to get this game.

This Adult Swim gem is my favorite retro platformer!

The controls are super responsive.
Brilliant, fast paced gameplay
Loads of melee weapons, projectiles, bombs and suits to unlock.
The unlocks and achievements actually test your in game skill.
Even if you fail, you will never get frustrated or bored playing this game.

If you absolutely love modern or retro platformers, YOU NEED TO BUY IT!

Super House of Dead Ninjas is a Great action game with a unlock system based on goal such as Reach The First boss Floor Without Kill a single unit when you revive anything within ur reach is killed - Bomb timing is even more hardcore Then Spelunky for a few of those challenge relating them

the game is pretty much what you see on Video gameplay ur a ninja can get RAGE mode in EASY - Hard mode but in Harcore Ninja mode i do recommend this game got it of humble bundle Weekly Adult Swim it good stuff can make ur own level most of floor is procedural to new game kinda like Rogue legacy

it is a good hidden gem worth the price especially right now on humble bundle Weekly which include other good games + the DLC

Pretty graphics;
Good  controls;
Difficult as hell.

 For those who are into roguelike games and plataformers, this is the game for you, especially if you enjoy games that are not easy, because this thing is hard as hell! Having awesome controls and precise commands just make you have an awesome experience. I'm sad to know that there aren't many gamers into this kind of game and some that don't even know that it exists.

Some of the best speed run platforming you'll find, anywhere. Lots of old-school arcade nostalgia. You'll seriously be wanting to buy a fountain soda, put quarters up on the display and shout "GOT NEXT."

As per request from a friend of mine, I'll be writing this review in the style of "metacritic". This is for you Clock.

I liek ninjas! I got this game because ninjas are really cool and it was good I did because the game is good! You play as a ninja girl and kill a lot of monsters with your sword while flipping around and jumping on lots of walls. The bosses are really big and cool and sometimes very hard. I really like games with ninjas so I found this one to be a lot of fun because its so fast and because you get to kill a lot of monsters real quick to get super speed and kill more monsters.

Id reccommennd this game to every one who likes ninjas and game with old graffics. It has many hours of fun if you like these things and you wont be dissappointed with buying it if you like ninjas and action ninja games. If your not sure if you should get it then go ahead and get it. Thats why i'm giving it a yes recommendation in my official review of it.

This roguelike platformer is absolutely fantastic. Imagine Rogue Legacy meets ninja gaiden. The controls are satisfying and the powerups are awesome. Once you learn to use the rage mechanic, every game turns into a speed run. Works well on both keyboard and gamepad, but I'd suggest the gamepad controls.

Not sure if you want to buy it? Search for the free web version and give it a try first.

Don't be fooled by the awful pixel graphics. This is a very well polished game.

During the Steam Summer Sale of 2014, I acquired about two dozen games via gifts and my own purchases. All of those games look awesome, but so far this is the one I keep playing. It has a tremendous sense of flow, timing and violence, and even though it is brutally difficult (and you will die a lot), once it begins to click, it's an amazing rush. You feel like SUCH a badass in this game it's silly. I love roguelikes like this, Spelunky and others, but honestly, this is the best of them I've played. For all the content you get with this game, it's a steal even at full price. Randomized levels, Workshop support, a comic and so on make this game a tremendous value. GET IT DANGIT. :)

This fast-paced-rogue-like-hack-n-slash-ninja-platformer is a must play for anyone who is a fan of the platformer genre. With tight controls, a level editor, and an entire arsenal of ninja weapons, this game will have you exploring this randomly generated, seemingly endless tower for hours.

A fantastically tight platformer, this game will make you feel like such a badass once you get used to its rhythm. Tons of enemies, plenty of fun tools to unlock, and challenges out the wazoo to overcome. My only complaint is that when I finish playing a few rounds, every other game feels slow and dull by comparison.
