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.

Super House of Dead Ninjas is another very solid entry into the recent list of randomly generated action games on the pc market.

Throughout the game, you're constantly descending a randomly generated tower at breakneck speed. There's a timer, as well as score bonuses for chain killing enemies encouraging you to go as fast as possible and kill as many enemies as possible without slowing down. It's very offense oriented, with not much dodging and a very strong emphasis on just blazing through everything without making any mistakes (a bit of a minus for me personally, since I prefer complex dodging, but it's definitely an interesting play style).

There are not many flaws that I can think of, as it overall feels well thought out. My biggest complaint is that the various traps and levels the rng gives you often feel a bit same-y, and lack strategic variety. Things do get harder as you progress, but once you've seen one set of hazards, you've pretty much seen them all, and that's all you really do throughout the course of the game. The ultra fast move speed also feels a bit unwieldy during some of the boss fights as well, though that could just be me.

It's a good game for sure, just not one of my favorites (play style is interesting but not really my style, and the slight lack of variety hurts it a bit too in my opinion). If you're on the fence, I'd recommend watching a gameplay video, because it plays exactly the way it looks. If it looks like something that'll scratch your speed running arcade ninja itch, than pick it up because you'll probably enjoy it a lot.

This game is my second favorite game (No game will ever be first exept for TF2). After 28 long hours of playing this game I have beat it on hard, and every hour that I have spent on this game and am about to spend on this game I would never take back. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this game. It has extremely fast-paced gameplay, amazing controls, a bright setting, and it actually has a small version of a story. I think that anyone that enjoys VERY fast paced gameplay and a hard but rewarding ending, should purchase this game. I rate this game 10/10.

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.
10/10
