A new take on Ninja: NinjaBoy for iPhone and iPad

I'm new to otakupride, they actually followed me on Twitter so I came here and check it out :). Seems like a very cool community.

I know you don't know me, and probably don't care too much about what I have to say :)..., but my brother and I just shipped our first iPhone and iPad game: NinjaBoy.

We're trying to make it as indie game devs by building games that remind us of the games we grew up with. Games that are easy to pick up and play, but a challenge to master. Games that are optimized for their medium, rather than just ports of other experiences. Games that respect the gamer by not overtly handholding them through the experience.

We worked really hard on NinjaBoy and hope you like it, but either way we'd love to hear your feedback!

If anyone has any questions, feedback, etc I'd be happy to answer them.

My brother did the artwork, I did the programming and game design. If you have art specific questions I can field some of them, but I can also get Greg to jump on the thread as well.

I love chatting with fans or aspiring designers, so don't hesitate to fire over your thots.

Cheers!

@TomHarrigan -- Nice! Thanks so much, love to know what you think. We built it around tilt-controls. Not just a game that happens to use tilt. If you've used tilt before you'll be good, if not they can take a few levels to get used to... the entire first set of boards is entirely designed to train you on tilt... so if you find it odd a first stick with it... the whole point is to give your brain a new type of gaming experience :).

@jim -- Nice work on rootbuzz! Does the platform extend to the UI experience? Love the auto-preview! But, what's the trick to embedding a video...? :) I tried the old style embed method but it doesn't seem to work, must be missing something obvious... any help would be appreciated :).

Shows how little Jim knows me.

Hey Developer-man, I write over at GameXplain.com (as well at TotalPlayStation.com... which is what Jim is thinking of). I'll be in touch :D

Awesome work guys!

I'm also a developer (I built most of the rootbuzz platform, which powers otaku pride :)

Great work on the game =D I wonder if gooie will review it. He usually does playstation stuff, but we'll see. He's pretty active on op.
