This is a very short game I made while learning more about programming.

The game consists of just a few rooms, some power ups, and a boss fight. Hearts will restore health. Coins don't do anything.

The core mechanics are around jumping and clinging to walls. During the boss fight, you will need to utilize this while throwing shurikens. You cannot turn around once you've started a jump.

I tried to squeeze in a notification system toward the end to create a small tutorial area. Not sure if it actually helps much, but it's there.

Lovely little game! Short but sweet could use a little more wall jump height and could make the boss fight more challenging either by making there be no spring pool or by making heart drops more frequent but give less health and maybe an invincible dash ability. Also I love how it's based on Ninja Gaiden.

Really nice little platformer! Great effects and attention to detail, the particles and little touches like the flames, and dmg vals floating and fading away make this feel really polished.

I should note that on the Miyoo Mini Plus which can only play at 30fps, the character disappears entirely instead of blinking after damage.

Great work!

This was really fun! But like birdmanisking said, I think that the boss fight is a little too easy, and you should try to add an invincible dash ability. But otherwise really fun! Good job!

Thanks for the feedback. I toned down the fight because I was told it was too difficult by several people, but I thought it was fine. The swamp water used to deal 100 damage if you hit it (basically you die), and boss scythes did 2 damage instead of one, and he’d start out firing all 5 scythes instead of easing into it.. Maybe I can make a version with the difficulty ramped up a bit… would not be hard.

Here is the un-minified source to a slightly older version in case anyone is interested. Be careful though, it's pretty gross and inconsistent in how I approached things.

You should make this longer
