Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: WALK THE PLANK
Seafoam's Fire in the Hole looks like a bright, 8-bit throwback, but there's not enough booty to make this a compelling voyage.

Rogue Ninja, A Ninja-themed RPG

Posted by Kevin Stout on April 12th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Rogue Ninja is a pixelated, dungeon crawler RPG with some seriously old-school RPG looks.

The game includes random dungeons (a great replay value element for any game), tons of items and monsters for players to encounter, chiptune music, and a Japanese-themed ninja world.

The interface is obviously tailored to look as retro as possible with an eight-directional D-pad with a center button, a large attack button (denoted by a swinging sword), “skip,” a loot bag, and what appears to be a ninja star button. Dungeons include the traditional mini map with colored dots telling players everything they need to know about the dungeon.

Rogue Ninja is currently on sale for $0.99, $2 off in celebration of the release of the game. Rogue Ninja is developed by Q-Cumber Factory and was released just last week.

The trailer below shows plenty of ninja star-throwing, sword-slashing gameplay.
