Ninflated is a unique new game that’s a fun mix of Doodle Jump, FallDown!, and Fruit Ninja.
Concept and Gameplay:
I’m a huge fan of time waster games that are quick to pick up and play, which is exactly what Ninflated is. Basically the concept of the game is to guide your bubble ninja through obstacles by sliding and tapping your fingers on the screen.
This definitely seems like an easy task, but let me assure you that Ninflated is anything but easy. The game almost feels like a vertical version of Flappy Bird, but much nicer. The best part is that there aren’t any levels to choose from or other fluff; if you lose the game, you can quickly try again.
As with all good games, Ninflated includes a twist if you happen to be good at the game. There are inverted levels, where controls are reversed. This ultimate test of skill definitely separates the good players from the great players.
Overall, though it’s frustrating as heck to play, Ninflated is one of those games you just can’t stop playing. You’re always trying to best your highest score, and you’re always trying to get better with tapping and sliding coordination.
Ninflated is a very light and straightforward game, so there aren’t a ton of features to write about. One that’s noteworthy, though, is Game Center integration. This allows players to easily challenge friends to beat their score, which makes any game fun.
Perhaps the only feature I’d recommend is character customization, if only to give Ninflated a dynamic feel that players can alter so it doesn’t get boring. Including additional customizations like backgrounds could also remedy the problem of static gameplay that doesn’t change very much.
Ninflated is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. You can optionally pay a minimal fee to disable ads, but they don’t really get in the way of gameplay.
Overall, Ninflated is a fantastically fun and fresh game that’ll have you playing for hours. It’s a great “pick up and play” type of game, and I definitely recommend it if you’re up for a challenge.
Ninflated requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.
