PikoNinja Released

shot_7.jpgSisvia today announced PikoNinja – The Last Ninja, a family-friendly game that has players defeating the evil minions of MaskiNinja to recover 4 sacred fruits in order to restore the health of Master Ke-Bran-Tao. Here’s the deal:

In PikoNinja you must control Piko through levels full of platform ninja action. Naturally, Piko is a ninja with plenty of superpowers and all the germane attacks. Besides, Piko is “widely” one of the best ninjas of his clan because… eh… eh… well, let’s say that Piko has gained a bit of weight lately, and always arrives the last in all his ninja tests (The Last Ninja). Piko can stomp his enemies, use several ninja arms (shurikens, bombs and bubbles), and even invoke the Clan’s dragon! In order to achieve his mission, you have to lead Piko through more than 25 levels with plenty of colorful ninja action, and defeat MaskiNinja and his 4 EvilBeasts, who are guarding the fruits. Do you have the ninja skills required for controlling Piko?

The game features 25+ levels and characters, various weapons and more. There’s a demo for the game that includes some levels as well as a tutorial stage.
