Arcade games are the cornerstone of any app collection. They’re great ways to pass the time and give you something to do when you’re bored out of your mind. Jumpy Ninja is an app by AllthatTek that uses the tried and true arcade formula to deliver a very satisfying gaming experience for smartphone users. It combines everything we love about arcade gaming into an easy-to-use interface and design.
The game’s setup process is as simple as it gets — download the game, install it and play. There no lengthy tutorials to follow and there’s even an option to switch off ads, which is rare to see in a free game. To play, all you have to do is tap and hold your screen to move the ninja across the level.
As you would expect, the longer you play, the harder it gets. You get points for successfully jumping to the next brick and lose every time you miss a block. The gameplay is very reminiscent of the viral sensation, Flappy Bird, and contains the same amount of addictiveness that will keep you glued to your smartphone screen for long stretches of time.
Jumpy Ninja is free to download from the Google Play Store and requires Android 2.3 or above.
