Calling this a Super Smash Bros. rip-off would be like calling Half-Life a Wolfenstein 3D rip-off. As is the case with games like WarioWare, the genre may have been created by one game, but it's still just that -- a genre.
I saw a video for this game a while ago, and my only hope was that it would play as good as it looked. The fact that the gameplay is just as polished as the graphics speaks volumes to the amount of work that must have gone into this game.
All I can say is "congratulations" to the team behind what will undoubtedly become one of the biggest hits of the Flash world.
"the genre may have been created by one game, but it's still just that -- a genre" Exactly! I'm glad some people get it. Although I would still credit WarioWare as a unique game concept rather than a genre. But that's splitting hairs. Thanks for the review!
Perhaps it's because I'm not a ninja, but the difficulty of this game pushes the limits of possible human reaction speeds. It looks great, though.
This is probably one of the most under-appreciated games I've seen on Newgrounds. Even the developer seems to under-appreciate its greatness.
When I first loaded up this game, I expected one thing: pants that were fancy. Oh, and an adventure. So I guess two things, really. And I have to say that this game delivered on both.
