Yurei Ninja would be a fun endless runner, but its controls are too awkward.

At first, Yurei Ninja seems pretty exciting. It’s a more action focused endless runner than most, with you slicing up enemies and flinging shurikens their way. There are few quiet moments here, and that makes it all the better. However, a temperamental control scheme means you won’t be happy for very long.

Controls are a mixture of swipes and taps, depending on what you’re attempting to achieve. By having such a variable scheme tough, it leaves plenty of room for error.

Often, you won’t feel as confident as you should, and mistakes happen. Mistakes that don’t feel like they’re your fault. That's particularly frustrating when you're accruing a great combo score, and then things go a little wrong.

That’s the real issue with Yurei Ninja. Elsewhere, it’s a fairly reasonable if unremarkable experience. You can unlock boosts and new characters through completing missions and gaining in-game currency. It keeps things varied, but it’s those hit and miss controls that will lead you to going elsewhere.
