Super Secret Ninja

I searched for Super Secret Ninja on TIGSource last night and was shocked to discover that it has never been mentioned. For shame!

In Super Secret Ninja, you use a grappling hook to speedily swing past the bad guys and get to the exit (arrow keys to move, up to jump, CTRL to grapple). Death comes if you run out of time or get noticed by too many enemies.

What at first seems like a bland game quickly becomes a frenzied race to the finish as the randomly generated levels get longer and filled with more baddies. Each grapple becomes the difference between a flawless escape and an embarrassing confrontation with the enemy.

PS: Hello everyone! In the (quite probable) event that you have no idea who I am, Derek invited the two writers of Puppy Buckets, Alehkhs and I, to help him out with TIGSource. Hopefully you’ll approve!

    Huh. I kinda like these frenzy-race-type games. I’ll have to try it out.

  • Tanner

    Puppy Buckets and Tigsource?
    at least it kinda is.

  • Derek

    Yay, procedural generation!

  • Jared

    @Derek: I knew this was relevant somehow!

  • Splinter of Chaos

    Wow, I had this on my computer long ago, but I’d completely forgotten about it. Thanks!

    Five minutes of fun~

  • Splinter of Chaos

    Yeah… After playing it again, I remember why I deleted it. It’s a fun game that should be more so.

  • Nikica

    Played it long times ago, it’s really hard.

  • Ping

    Oh man, Super Secret Ninja! I can’t BELIEVE I forgot this game, otherwise I’d have tipped it to TIGsource sooner.

    Man, great game. I had it on my old 350mhz box back…oh…6 or 7 years ago or so.
