Not bad, but not particularly good, either. I didn't play much of the original Ninja JaJaMaru-kun because I didn't like it, but this one was much easier to get into. It gave me heavy Mappy-Land vibes which is a good game. This is a very janky game and that's the main thing holding it back. Movement's not the best, and some enemies/obstacles seem to just know how you'll move. The game doesn't end until you lose all your lives, so I called it quits at level 20, which seems like a pretty natural endpoint.
If you played Ninja JaJaMaru-kun and that there was something there that it didn't quite scratch, give this one a shot. Not something worth going out of your way for, however.
I have mental illness so this site is perfect for me. Every few months I get the urge to just binge Sporcle puzzles even if I've done them many times over.
While actually playing puzzles are usually fun, they are user-made, so they're often not fully updated or will have weird discrepancies or odd inclusions, and sometimes a puzzle you might want to play just might not exist. Also, actually making puzzles - the few times I've tried - have been very unintuitive, I feel.
*This is a repost because the page for the DS game would link back to a different game for a while so I couldn't post it here.
The second I saw this game, I knew I had to play it as it is instantly reminiscent of the incredible Shattered Dimensions DS version. Well, the bones are there, but ultimately this is a much more watered down version of that game. Instead of being a follow-up in terms of gameplay, it's more like they copied the other's homework but were a bit too far to see all the answers. Graphics, exploration, movement, and especially combat are all not up to snuff with Shattered Dimensions.
Does that surprise me? No. I could tell even from brief gameplay I had seen that this was not going to be as good as that game. Yet, it's also not different enough to judge it on its own merits.
I'd like to make it clear that I'm aware that these are the same developers as Spider-Man: Edge of Time DS, so it's probably a spiritual sequel to that more than anything. But I couldn't bare to spend more than ten minutes with that disappointment, so the gameplay didn't stick with me. This game as a whole is a step-up from that game, though nothing impressive. There are worse ways to spend an hour and a half than this game, just don't go out if your way for it.
