Ninjas, one of the symbols of the mysterious oriental culture, always keep players’ curiosity and interest. No matter in the traditional literature/movie/TV/anime industry or in the emerging game industry, countless ninja-themed works can be found. Today, let’s have a look at the ninjas featured in browser-based games.
Even in the early days of the browser game industry, a large number of ninja-themed browser games made their appearance. These games mainly evolved on the basis of textual descriptions other than dynamic scenes, but players still gave free play to their imagination and show love for the games. Few of the games appearing in this period survive now. If wishing to recall the past through browser games, you can just try out The Ninja-RPG and Billy Vs Snakeman, either of which still keeps a large player base and also features substantial textual settings. Samurai & Ninja and NinjaUnited are another two such games that survive.
Fights between the two ninja clans - Iga and Kōga in real life provide many touching materials for the literature, and duels among mysterious and mighty ninjas are doomed to be the main tone of ninja-themed browser games forever. NinjaTrick and Nindou, both of which are mainly characterized by group battles, demonstrate ninjas’ cruel fights in a real-time and dynamic manner. Well, the battle scenes look lovely in a sense.
Speaking of ninjas, we have to mention Naruto. Though ninjas in Naruto look rather different from real ones, we still cannot ignore Naruto’s international influence. That is, lots of ninja-themed works have something to do with Naruto, such as Pockie Ninja, Ninja Saga, Naruto Arena, and Ninja Manager. These games present players with more outstanding gameplay content thanks to the progress of technologies, and are thus spoken highly of by players.
Pockie Ninja incorporates some of the best known characters and special abilities from the infamous Bleach and Naruto series. The game offers a deep item synthesising system. And a robust choice of customisable outfits that each offer special abilities and stat boosts.
WarOfNinja.com is a game where you travel through a world full of powerful villages and ninja. During your journey you aquire new ninja and buy powerfull items to use in battles.
