If you combined the runner genre with Fruit Ninja, a bunch of monsters and plenty of action, it would probably look something similar to Ninja Sprint, a new title from Eastasiasoft.
A play as the heroine Neko, a former stray cat gifted with a new human form and unique special abilities thanks to a stray lightning bolt. She soon finds herself in the middle of a world filled with dangerous creatures and plenty of hazards that want to take her down. Your job is to guide the feline frenzy along each world dicing up said enemies with a host of unique attacks and combos. Check out the video below if you don’t believe me!
If that all sounds and a little strange, it’s as simple as running along and attacking at the right time, building up that high score as much as possible. Ninja Sprint is all wrapped up in a colourful and outlandish world, giving you the option of turning blood into flowers for example. There’s a few super attacks that Neko can take advantage of, some of them clearing the entire screen of any enemies when executed and others … well, I won’t spoil it for you too much. Let’s just say it’s all tounge in cheek.
If Eastasiasoft sounds familiar, you may recall the Hong Kong studio’s previous releases include the likes of Rainbow Moon and the Söldner-X series. Ninja Sprint, however, is probably their most quirky title to date. You can find it for your Apple or Android device today if your curiosity has hit a kitty, blood soaked peak. Otherwise, check out the official website here.
