Get ready as our old friend Ninja Ben strikes again.
This time we shall follow our brave warrior high in the mountains of Winterland for a special training out in the cold.Just as Ben is starting his training session, all of a sudden he spots a young beautiful girl running and screaming for help. When the girl was almost ready to reach our ninja a big white Gorilla grasps her under his big heavy arms and disappears for good.
The game features four levels of continuous action where the young ninja will have to escape the annoying penguins, fight the disguised red elves and the destroy the big evil Snowman before reaching the Gorilla’s lair where the beautiful girl was trapped.
Keep in mind the red elves will attack you by trowing snowballs or by sneaking near you laying flat on the ground. The first ones will position themselves on high places or hide into trees so that they can spot you from distance and to have a leverage on you.In order to defeat them you must hit them with three shurikens.
The ones that will try to sneak on you are easier to destroy and takes only two shurikens.
Now let’s talk about the evil Snowman. This type of enemy is immune to shurikens, so you can’t beat it by using a normal approach. More although it may seem harmless at first the Snowman will try to take you by surprise by trowing a giant snowball right on you.Snowmans can only be destroyed if you place a bomb near them and wait for it to explode. You can collect bombs by opening the chests available from place to place.
The game gives you the opportunity to collect gold coins in order to reach 50 and get an extra life which will count a lot when you reach at the end of the fourth level and must fight the giant Gorilla.
To defeat the Gorilla you need to use six bombs, yet the creators of the game wanted to reward you for reaching this far so to have a better chance to win bombs will be available for you to collect them just before the monster ape will enter the stage.
Fighting the boss won’t be an easy thing as this won’t be a fair fight one vs one batlle. This time you really need to hit the Gorilla by placing bombs near her, and also fight many penguins that will attack you from both sides.
This game was developed by www.clarusgames.com and I must say that is one of the best looking platform titles that I came across lately. I really find the graphics to be truly outstanding and the music also fits perfect to the general background.
