    Shadow Blade's review

    Published: 2014-03-04, by Peter Warrior.

    Do the ninja trick of collecting all coins

    • Dynamic (and fun) gameplay
    • Technical performance might be improved
    • Lack of additional game modes or stuff

    "Darkness Edge"

    As the native mobile platformer it is, Shadow Blade comes with everything you'd expect: parkourer ninjas, spiteful traps and daydream enemies. But before talking about the differences between shaken and shuriken, let's reconsider this.

    Shadow Blade is 2D platformer, non ever-running. You have to tap left or right to move left or right, so you can keep yourself still at a place in order to think what to do next. Your überninja can also double jump on air, spring jump at walls, slash enemies and make diving and dashing attacks. However, as stages are timed, it'll be better if you improvise fast if you want to get all the coins and get the three star rating, unless you prefer to move slowly and memorize every jump and enemy.

    This non senseless and highly interesting gameplay makes that other areas which aren't as good can be seen kindlier. Graphics are adequate but not groundbreaking in any sense, animations are short of frames and overall, technical performance is average. But gameplay is good and suited for anyone, so we would recommend you to go for it. Ninja-style, of course.
