Story
The Olympic Ninja Festival is going on, somewhere in an ancient village in Japan.
Mysterious earthquakes threaten the festival. Who will venture through those dangerous mountains,

Great game. Good use of surfaces. Only thing was, I find the screen really cluttery. Other than that, cool.

Very good looking game :), although half way through i got a bit bored and quited it. It's ashame as i really liked it aswell. And i'd say this is a definite threat for gamemakers entering the competition, me alike. <_<

Wan Khing and Fu King

I have to agree with just one question, it does seem a bit cluttered (especially the level select menu) However, I must say, this is a great stand alone game and most definately a competition winner. Really good stuff :)

Hmm, can you really get away with names like Wan Khing and Fu King?

I do not think they will disqualify me because of that. ^_^
Besides, Khing is a real asian second name.

Thanks. I am aware it may look a bit cluttered, but I designed it like that. I wanted to make something that is not too bound to a grid.

Thanks for your reactions guys! :D

Hi all,

I made an update because of the comments other people gave.

The improvements:
- Grammatical flaw corrected
- More help at the beginning of the game
- Bug in the seventh level corrected
- Made a message so players know why errors occurre (the incompatiblity with surfaces)
- Made a credits room that is showed at the end of the game
- Corrected a bug dealing with the instance deactivation system
- Added messages like 'Can not teleport dead teammate!' and 'Not enough lives!' and improved that system

So everything should be fine now I think. The only thing I couldn't fix is the bug where the surfaces behave strange but do not give errors. I hope the judges won't have such a graphics card (actually this is only the case with graphics cards from approximately 4+ years old).

I feel this game deserves far more attention than only 4 comments here and a rating of 2.5 on YoYo Games and placed 22th.

Any new tips are welcome!

I just wanted to say that Ninjamboree is eventually featured/staff picked! The game is showed under the What's Hot column directly on yoyogames.com!

I'm really excited about this. Just to let you guys know. :mellow:
