This game is probably one of the most adoreable games I have ever played.
Aside from all the cuteness, the game has a very fun combat system where you can play as different (mini) ninjas who each have their own weapon and skills which make it very fun and interesting to play.
It's such a simple yet beautiful game packed with humor that I'm sure everyone will enjoy!

What a gem, can't believe i took 4 years to say "yea, i'll install it and see what's up." Very enjoyable game, Pretty straight foward story and likable characters to play. A great adventure through jungles, castles and snow areas, slicing away evil samurais. Kept a smile on my face all the way through.

Cute is what defines this title most. The graphics are cartoony and simple, the heroes are very cute and so are most enemies. There is no gore in this game, no dark twists, controls are simple and there is no character management. This makes this game very suitable for kids but also less appealing for someone seeking more depth. There is a lot of running around which I found a bit frustrating since the characters move slow. Fighting is mostly fun and diversified by the different ninjas but at times the camera and control can be a bit messy. I played with xbox360 controller and it worked great, no other technical issues noted.

A nice light action adventure.

Really nice game to couch-play without having to focus too much, especially with a wireless controller. The graphics in the game create a sort of cozy feeling even though all enemies look about the same and it seems like they took a few shortcuts during development by reusing character models more than usual the game still did not feel too repetative as is the case in many similar games. Anyways, I really liked playing through it and would recommend it to others that are looking for a less serious adventure

I was looking for an easy fun game. This was it. Its a simplistic adventure game that has easy controls and cute characters. There are items throughout the game you can collect to get a perfect score at the end of each mini mission. The enemies are silly and have their own quirks too. Most would consider this a childs game, but I find it enjoyable as well. Exploring the surrounding areas to find all the items and having fun with animals is interesting as well. For a simplistic game, a lot of thought was put into the little things. If you are looking for a rush rush game then you wont like this style, but it is a nice change of pace to all of the more intense games.

Steam is home to a lot of crap, and I do mean a lot.. But it also is home to a number of hidden gems that no one really talks about much.

Mini Ninjas is one of those gems. A bit of an imperfect one, sure, but a gem nontheless. And like many hidden gems, it doesn't get a whole lot of attention.

The game is kinda an action adventure game, with small elements of RPG and stealth. You play the role of a ninja named Hiro, who is tasked with finding all his lost friends and saving the world while he is at it. A lot of pressure, I know, but then you are a ninja with the power to control the elements, so it shouldn't be too hard (Which kinda is a problem for the game, I'll explain later)

Being that you play the role of a ninja, stealth is a tool you'll be making a lot of use out of. As some might indicate, however, the stealth aspect of the game isn't really all that advanced, and oftentimes isn't used to avoid fights so much as it is to get the first strike in any given fight (or outright kill everyone in a patrol before they even have time to react). While it is possible to avoid fights, you won't want to in the early game, because you need to fight to gain XP and level up. Otherwise, the road ahead will be awfully harsh to those who don't kick enough butt. While quietly avoiding fights isn't encouraged (At least in the early game), the stealth system does indeed work very well, and in the late game, where by then you are already maxed out, it becomes much more viable.

When the time comes to fight, however, it is a mixed bag. Combat is simple, with a few basic attacks, a block breaker, and even a super move that can cause all sorts of pain for those unlucky to be the target of it. You also have a selection of items that can make fights go more smoothly, such as pepper bombs and potions that make arrows bounce off your face. However, the problem is that it IS simple, even to the point of simply mashing the two buttons until everyone is dead before moving on to the next fight. I myself don't mind it, but those seeking a deeper combat system might not enjoy the game as much.

Sure, as you progress through the game you'll unlock more ninjas to fight with, each having their own style (Such as the fat ninja's brute force hammer skills that can make fighting larger enemies blindingly easy, or the archer ninja's ranged combat skills). However, I never really did bother to use any of them besides the ninja you start with. In DK 64, the devs made it so that you had to use all the Kongs in order to beat the game, so you couldn't just march through the whole game with Donkey Kong the whole time. Not so much here, where you can get through the entire game without changing ninjas ONCE. Maybe on hard mode, you would have to swap out ninjas more often, but on normal mode it is rather pointless for the most part, and in some cases even more fun, since fighting larger enemies feels more satisfying when you have to put up a real fight to take them down, rather than swapping over to fat ninja and just wailing on them, stun locking them to death. And even moreso, the starter ninja is the only one who can use magic, and as you progress through the game, you'll learn how important magic is.

So, the combat is ok at best, the whole 6 ninja team gimmic is iffy when you can go through the whole game with the main star of the game just fine (and possibly makes the adventure so much more interesting and challenging), and stealth early on, while it does play a considerable role in the game, is mostly used for ambushing more than avoiding conflict altogether. And yet... I love this game.

Maybe it is because it reminds me of the glory days, back when we had games like Banjo & Kazooie 1 & 2, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Jak and Daxter... You know those kind of games? The ones where you feel like you are on a real adventure throughout an interesting, if sometimes even strange, world waiting to be explored. You start out in your humble village, venturing out chapter after chapter on your way to the big bad guy himself, taking out his generals and anyone else who dares to get in your way, while at the same time taking a moment to explore the area for goodies and new spells to unlock. It helps that the world and the music that fills it is quite appealing, making the journey all the more enjoyable. That, and it is around 9-10 hours on my first playthrough, so you get your money's worth for sure. Gotta love a game that keeps you busy for a nice long while.

As much as I'd like to yammer on and on, I'd like to wrap it up as a game that, while the gem is a bit cloudy, it is a gem nontheless, and a shame that it isn't more popular, let alone given a respected sequel (instead getting spinoffs on the Kinect and a Ipad runner.. Yeah, kinda a sad fate for the ninjas if you ask me).

Even though it has been designed with kids in mind, with the lack of adult themes, it did actually entertain me. It's a very laid back hack and slash adventure that can be enjoyed by all ages. The combat is the weakest part as it is very simple compaired to most other games in the same genre. However the art style and Japanese setting is very nice to look at and actually it's simplicity makes it all the more enjoyable to play and explore. It tries to encoporate an open world design for each level while still being very linear, like the Crysis series there are different ways to approach and complete each goal. Overall I recommend this game to anyone who has younger kids to entertain, or has an interest in Japanese culture, or anyone that wants to switch off and kill a few hours. 7.5/10

It has light platforming, combat is real time and fluid, you get special moves, you can sneak up on enemies, you get skills when you level up, and there is a crafting system. You get 6 characters you can switch out (once you find them)

the one small negative point is there is a bit of a learning curve on the conrols, but thats what the tutorial is for. You can also remap buttons.

all in all a bit of everything. The cartoonish graphis put me off for a bit though.

This game is pretty fun.
Probably one of the few games rated for all ages that is worth playing.
Great artstyle and sound gameplay which plays a bit like a simplified Ninja Gaiden with a two button attack system and a ninpo spell system. In terms of length, my first playthrough took around 9 hours to complete which isn't too long, but for the price, I got it for one, Mini Ninjas is a great game.
Hopefully a sequel isn't too far off.

My thoughts on this game;

Well, I got it because I had a demo version some years back. I feel a little dissapointed, as it's more of an exploritory beat-em-up than a ninja game. You are not really rewarded for stealth, in fact you are somwhat punished - you only gain XP / level up by killing enemies, and there are no real stealth kills possible.

I also feel that the UI is somewhat clunky / made for consoles, the camera doesn't always do what I want it to, and I can only select from 6 items at a time, when I may have 20 available to me, and I need to got through 2 sets of menus and then press another key to activate an ability.

I do like how it slow-motions as you are selecting an ability, that's pretty cool.

The other thing, is that the game story and progression feels very slow. I have not found any plot developments, and I'm 5h into this game. I'm just getting bored with it. There's nothing 'wrong' with it, it just doesn't feel like much fun.

I also dislike how one of the coolestr things you can do (posess animals) is most useful with bigger animals, which are usually caged and heavily protected, you have to wipe out the enemies to get to the animals so that you can use them to... wipe out the enemies you just wiped out.

So, basically, I got bored with this cutesy little ninja game about running in guns blazing.
