Super House of Dead Ninjas is yet another game from Adult Swim developed by Megadev and can be purchased on Steam for PC. It offers full controller support and I highly suggest using one to play for the smoothest experience.
This game is somewhat twitch-based in the sense that you are constantly moving at a blinding speed and must be aware of all enemies and traps nearby or even hiding. The movements are quite precise and the jump height is more realistic, although you are still granted a double jump which actually I barely use unless it’s on certain boss fights. The controls are immediately laid out for you on the first four floors and then you’re off on your own! Protip: Read the comic at the main menu before starting because it’ll give you an unlockable item as well as some sweet back-story.
Each area of the tower has its own theme and it’s honestly pretty forgettable because of almost monochrome themes which actually hides certain enemies well enough to where you don’t notice them until it’s too late. Thankfully, you get 2 continues and through unlocking, your life meter increases as well.
Speaking of which, there are tons of unlockables both aesthetics and skills. Overall, this game is pretty fun if you’ve got a few minutes to kill. Slap on whatever weapon you feel like using and speed your way through the tower leaving behind a trail of corpses at a blistering pace. If you kill enough enemies fast enough, you also enter an enraged mode which grants you a speed boost and invincibility. The gauge can still be replenished by continuing to kill enemies while enraged, extending your time.
Side note: Some enemies will display the names of your friends from Steam. Killing them adds to the “Friends Killed” tally for the lols. There are also some helpful ghosts throughout the tower.
- Difficulty: Medium
- Gameplay Score: 4/5 (Controls are tight and flow of the game is great.)
- Graphics Score: 2/5 (Monochrome areas make it boring and hard to see.)
- Music: 1/5 (Aside from the intro screen, I don’t really recall music in the tower itself.)
See you next game! -DecoyEC has logged off.
