Ninjin Clash Of Carrots Review

Ninjin Clash Of Carrots is set in a fantasy continent which is heavily inspired by Feudal Japan. Ninjin is a fast-paced, frenetic hack and slash beat ’em up game, which has a surprisingly deep amount of character customisation options to give each and every stage a fresh and exciting take based on the arsenal you equip prior to diving into a level. In Ninjin, you can play as one of two ninjas, Ninjin the charismatic rabbit or Aki the ninja fox, whilst fighting your way through the evil Shogun Moes army with the goal of defeating him and bringing back the carrots that have been stolen from your village.

Ninjin Clash Of Carrots controls really well and offers an engaging and exciting style of gameplay reminiscent of older on the rails shooter styled games, it really made me feel quite nostalgic. Levels are split up into waves in which you’ll find yourself being introduced to a host of wacky enemies and bosses in some pretty frantic action. It’s a game in which you need to be on your toes and constantly utilising the stage area to your advantage. Due to the fact that you’re always moving forward, you can’t really turn around to tackle enemies that pose a threat from behind you, so you need to quickly and effectively manoeuvre around the stage to ensure you can dodge the oncoming onslaught of attacks, whilst getting to a position in which you can take these enemies out. Which is easier said than done, as you can’t always run past large groups of enemies, and if you don’t pay attention you can quickly find yourself surrounded. Fortunately, you can dash and dash attack through enemies in any direction, which is really handy when you find yourself in a tight spot, not only that but you can use your secondary weapon to deal damage from a distance making quick work of some of the weaker enemies that you may face.

The game’s visuals are gorgeous, Ninjin utilises anime inspired HD pixel art graphics to really make the characters, their surroundings and every little detail of the game pop. Characters are highly detailed and full of life, the environments are each unique in their own way and mix things up enough to stop you from getting bored of running through similar terrain over and over again. Not only that, but the game has some excellent music to boot. Which only helps get you hyped up for each level and boss encounter.

As I had previously mentioned, the game has an abundance of wacky and excentric weapons and items that you can unlock and purchase to give yourself the edge against Shogun and his army. There are over 150 weapons and items that you can use, such as swords, projectiles and masks to name a few. You can unlock items by either getting chests during a stage or by purchasing items from the shop using some of your hard earned carrots. The variety of items really opens up some good opportunities for really interesting and intense battles, not only that but if you’re playing with a friend you can mix and match to see which weapon combinations provide the deadliest attacks as a team. The game offers local and online co-op, meaning you can grab a friend and slash, smash and bash your way through the Ninjin story together.

Ninjin has a rather robust story mode, which has plenty of humour and entertainment throughout it, which will keep you hooked and unable to put the controller down until you reach the end. Throughout your journey, you’ll meet a bunch of diverse characters that only help to emphasise the game’s light-hearted humour and silly, over the top action. Ninjin is quite a simple game, but that doesn’t mean it’s a walk in the park either, as I had previously said, if you’re not quick on your toes and learning how to take advantage of the stages your playing on and how to best deal with the enemies in front of you, then you’re asking for trouble. Due to the fast-paced action of the game, things often occur so quickly, you’ll be finding yourself lost amongst the chaos that’s on screen and that’s what makes Ninjin such an enjoyment to play.

I Give This Game A

For the low asking price of £11.99 (here in the UK), you can’t really go wrong. Ninjin packs a bunch of value for such a low price and has an abundance of content and modes that are certain to keep bringing you back for more. If you’re looking for a good coop game to play with friends, or just something that’s easy to pick up, play and get lost in, then Ninjin Clash Of Carrots is for you.
