Android App Ninja Hero Cats Review


Ninja Hero Cats mixes two of the most popular things on the internet, Ninja and Cats. How could it go wrong?

Ninja Hero Cats has a very simple Angry Birds type story. A group of cats who just happen to be ninjas are about to enjoy a meal when suddenly a tentacled mass appears out of the floor and steals it. The cats jump into the strange portal left behind to retrieve their food and an epic battle against hundreds of hostile creatures ensures!

Ninja Hero Cats has some very simple controls and indeed very simple gameplay. Players simply drag their finger around to screen to guide their fearless squad of cat killers around the screen and attacking is automatic when the cats get close enough to an enemy.

If a cat is killed, it can be revived later on in the level with a certain powerup, but losing all your cats kicks the player all the way back to level 1. Seeming as each level is a few minutes long and the game saves level progress it seems strange to be kicked all the way back to level one, usually losing hours and hours of progress. It would make a lot more sense to simply have to restart the level reached rather than the entire game all over again.

At least getting killed doesn’t remove purchased powerups. By collecting goldfish which are often dropped in each level many upgrades for your cats can be bought, from basic attack damage boosts to whole new attacks, like a fire trail to burn enemies and lighting attacks.

Ninja Hero Cats looks very average. While it animates smoothly, characters are very small and animation is very limited. The sound is OK and there are cute little meows as the cats fight and plenty of sound cues, which is useful since the graphics are so indistinct.
