About the Game
8Bit Ninjas captures the essence of what made arcade games so much fun:
from simple but deep mechanics, to airtight platforming controls,
to fierce 4 player free-for-all/cooperative multiplayer, 8Bit Ninjas is a throwback to days long past.
Beyond simple nostalgia,though, 8BN's unique genre-bending mechanics, quirky story, and beautiful vistas
will have you coming back for more for time to come!
The core premise behind 8Bit Ninjas is simple: at the bottom of every level is a body of water; your main goal is to knock the other contestants into this water without falling in yourself. To accomplish this, your character is equipped with shuriken (ninja stars), which he can throw to destroy the level around him. To complicate matters further, you can't just beat opponents into submission; you'll have to use your wits!
