Rope Ninja Adorably Roped My Day Away

Aw, he's so cute.

Aw, he’s so cute.

Find yourself in the mountain ranges of ancient Japan with Rope Ninja. The main character is a tiny, blue ninja training to become one of the greatest rope masters. Still a novice, he needs your help to make the journey. With strong winds and uneven platforms ahead, it’s your job to help him rope the right birds to reach his final destination.

Adding a touch of Japanese here and there

Rope Ninja’s developers added just enough Japanese cultural motifs without overdoing it. Distinctly Japanese sights such as the torii, cherry blossom trees, and pagodas paint the background, while the precious little coins your Ninja collects as he travels forward feature the square holes of traditional Japanese coinage.

Animation details that put a smile on your face

Compared to many games that are highly animated, Rope Ninja’s basic animations are just enough to add to your experience without taking away from it. The slight swinging of the rope before it’s thrown, your ninja eyeing the birds overhead, and the bulging of the birds’ eyes are little details that top the game off with that extra bit of delightful frosting.

Hanging by a thread

Throwing your rope with a simple tap and hold is harder than it sounds. You’ll need hand-eye coordination to grab the birds at just the right moment and for just the right length of time to land safely on the next platform. One second longer or shorter ends your ninja’s journey in the abyss.

The game can be nerve-wracking after a few visits to the bottom. Thankfully, Rope Ninja lets you use the coins you’ve collected along the way to continue the game without having to start from the very beginning.

It knows now.
