It all started with a clever design and lots and lots of felt. After that initial success, Shawnimals grew into a fairly notable “indie” brand. This soon lead to a Nintendo DS game, followed by another on iOS. After all this activity, it’s a wonder no one thought to make a custom ninja creation app. Well, until now anyway.
And Ninjatown Ninja Builder does just that. It incorporates elements from the classic and very recognizable Shawnimals style and lets users go nuts. Moods, body styles, backgrounds, clothing, colors and accessories can all be fiddled with in order to craft that perfect shadow warrior representation. Or just to make a goofy looking ninja. Whatever they’re in the mood for, really.
In addition to the new app, Shawnimals and Venan have also released an update for Ninjatown: Trees of Doom!. Perhaps the app was made to celebrate the update, or perhaps it’s the other way around. Or maybe it’s just a coincidence. No matter the reason, owners of the iOS platformer can now enjoy a winter theme as well as new mountain and zombie ninja avatars.
Really though, Ninjatown Ninja Builder is what we’re talking about here. And it’s available on the App Store right now, ready to scratch that adorable ninja-making itch. The basic app is totally free, with two (thus far) additional content packs priced at $0.99 each.
iPads are taking over the world and it looks like our skies too. Gameloft has collaborated with Australian airline Jetstar in order to offer a lineup of 12 pre-loaded games for iPads as part of the in-flight entertainment program for passengers.
Coming to the airline in the first quarter of 2012 will be the remaining seven titles: GT Racing: Motor Academy, Brain Challenge, Blokus, Iron Man 2, Let’s Golf! 2, The Settlers and Asphalt 5. It’s a varied bunch both in terms of genre and quality but it should be plenty to keep passengers entertained during their flight.
Passengers will be able to rent iPads with such games on them when flying longer than 2 hours for A$10 to A$15 per flight. Not bad at all for a heap of fun.
