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.

Fishing might be a great pastime but it’s more famous for its relaxed pace than its action packed, slicing and dicing type excitement. That is until a game like Ninja Fishing comes along. Yes, Ninja Fishing. It really is that wacky a combination, bordering on the kind of absurdity that only a game featured inside Game Dev Story would normally offer.
In Ninja Fishing, players control Otoro, a fisherman ninja who’s got quite an appetite for sushi. Players must tilt the iOS device in order to move the hook around fish and underwater mines. Once a fish is hooked, Otoro then reels in the catch flinging the fish into the air. This is where the ninja side of things come into play with players needing to slice the fish as fast as possible while nimbling avoiding the dynamite that lies in wait.
Extra points are gained for capturing rare fish and there’s an upgrade system to play around with too.
The lighthearted and devilishly humorous Ninja Fishing is set to be released August 4th. We’ll be sure to have the latest scoop on it nearer the time. For now, check out the trailer.
