MINI NINJAS VERDICT
Fundamentally, Mini Ninjas is a sweet-natured, breezily fun hack and slash title embellished with a few gentle RPG elements that inject a little extra depth to proceedings. It’s perfectly pleasant and enjoyable brand of cartoon violence will probably see a good few hours of your time fly by as you swipe your way through adorable, glowing-eyed samurai enemies. Just like anything mini - mini eggs, mini cheddars, mini Babybel - Mini Ninjas is exceedingly moreish. Like a sweet, chocolate-covered confection, IO’s expectation confounding time away from brutal murder is something you’ll happily consume, even though you know that it might be bad for you. Sadly, we’re not entirely sure who Mini Ninja’s core audience might be as it may prove too harsh for the little ones and too easy for the more seasoned. Forget all that though – give it a go and prepare to be enchanted by it’s lovable ninja charm.
TOP GAME MOMENT
Liberating ninja buddy Tora - who thinks he’s a tiger - from his bamboo cage. He’s stealthy, fast and the best character in the game. Bar little Hiro, of course.
