Ninja Senki

November 9, 2009

Here’s the trailer of Ninja Senki. I’ve been working on this platformer almost every evening (night) of the last few months. Ninja Senki features a blue ninja, shurikens and revenge! The game is going to be a bit hardcore, so be warned:  it will require skills. The amazing music for the trailer was composed by Yan Thouin.


  1. Nice!

  2. holy yeah!

    looks a bit old gen though
    should put more panning it the bg

    is there gonna be blendings for the animations?
    what will make this game a benchmark for 2010 indi games?

  3. vraiment nice!

  4. WOAH~! Super cool! ^_^
    Hey, it got posted on Tiny Cartridge!

  5. Yeah, I was really surprised to see my stuff on Tiny Cartridge! They even posted the trailer before I could update my blog. That was fast!

    @gameindustryasshole: Haha! Nice one.

  6. Hi all the way from denmark;)
    Pleas make this at GBA homebrew game. It could start a trend on hombrew games on the dying system. would pay for it.

    This looks fantastic, Is it only pc?

  7. Since it’s developed with Game Maker, it’s only PC compatible right now (and maybe Mac eventually).

    It would be really hard for me to make a GBC or GBA version because the code would need to be redone from scratch. I would also need the help of a programmer who knows how to code for that kind of hardware (I worked on a bunch of GBA games in the past, but as a pixel artist, not a coder). I also don’t have any GBA dev kits or tools. So that’s probably unrealistic for now.

    I admit that it would be really cool though.

  8. A gba coder needs to com to the rescue. 😉

    But anyways good work

  9. Jo, tu torches des culs. Yan avec. 🙂

  10. Have you ever heard of Retro Game Challenge, by any chance…?

    Looks like a Robot Ninja Haggle Man 2.5. And, coming from me, that is a VERY exceptional compliment.

  11. Thanks! Yup, I played Game Center CX, the japanese version of Retro Game Challenge. Robot Ninja Haggle Man and Ninja Jajamaru-kun on NES are definitely huge inspirations for the style.

  12. WOO! Always nice to meet another GCCX/RGC fan. It’s pretty much my favorite game of all time.

    I can’t wait for this to be finished!

  14. Is there a demo somewhere? This looks so sweet I can’t wait XD

  15. This looks fantastic! I can’t wait to see more / play. Makes me think old NES days, some of my favorite gaming time.
