Remember your Tamagotchi digital pet? Remember all the fun you had together? Sure, it died a horrible screaming death when you accidentally ran it through the washing machine, but things are different now. You're older. You're more responsible. You're ready for another digital pet. Maybe you'd even like your very own ninja. Well, NaturalMotion has you covered with Clumsy Ninja, a pet (er, "pet") simulator that lets you train, tease, and toss around the most adorable ninja in history.
Clumsy Ninja has a bit of a story, which is surprising since exposition beyond "clean up this thing's poop" is not common in pet simulator games. Your new ninja pal has a girlfriend/mentor who's been captured by bad guys, and he wants to rescue her. Problem is he's kind of clumsy.
Your job as a responsible ninja owner is to train up your ninja. You do so by interacting with him, and by buying him toys and training materials that he can jump on, hit, block, and generally have fun with. You also tickle your ninja friend, tie balloons around him and watch him float, or just throw him around and watch him bounce (which is mean). Nearly everything you do with your ninja earns him experience (life is one big teaching moment, right?), which helps level him up. As you gain levels, you also unlock new items to play with and new belts to wear with pride.
Your ninja is an eager learner, so you won't have any problems with obedience or surliness. In fact, the titular Clumsy Ninja may be the cutest darn trained assassin to ever hit mobile. He's got enormous green eyes that are impressively expressive, he enjoys high-fives, and he receives every victory with humble relish. Even his movements grant him humanity, ragdoll physics aside. When you first start training him on the trampoline, he climbs up hesitantly and makes small, unsure jumps. As he gets better, he becomes more confident and tries out more daring moves. Read more »
