SuperNinjaSkydivingPlusZombies, Ultimate Slasher Ninja Android Game

Posted on Jul 7, 2011 in Games, Top Rated Games | comment

With a title like SuperNinjaSkydivingPlusZombies, there’s no way this slasher ninja Android game can disappoint (and it doesn’t)!

  • Version: 1.00
  • Size: 2.30MB (apps2SD enabled)
  • Category: Games
  • Price: $0.99

The instructions are simple and go something like this: you are a skydiving ninja on a mission to slice pesky zombies without getting swarmed. Collect power-ups and pickup bread (don’t slice it!) along the way to maximize your score. Reach the parachute and glide to safety.

Tap the screen as you fall to create waypoints (designated by shining ninja stars) along the path of greatest zombie destruction. Helpful tip: I had the most success using controls set to Instant (in the settings), so the ninja responds immediately to your latest tap.
