Description

Sneaky Ninja is the stealth game Nintendo would make; halfway between Mario and Mark of the Ninja, it combines lighthearted platforming with tactical stealth action for an adorable yet challenging ninja adventure!

  • A grand adventure through a variety of colorful environments in Taro and his fellow ninjas' quest to stop the ruthless Samurai Shogun from wiping out their ninja clan
  • A game for all ages AND skill levels: difficulty modes radically change the gameplay to suit the most casual to the most hardcore
  • Use a wide range of equipment like shuriken and katana to strike from the shadows, create distractions with rocks and smokebombs, or soar through the air with a ninja kite and grappling hook
  • The environment is your greatest tool: take cover in tall grass, bushes, or anything that can hide a squishy ninja, and use your acrobatic moveset to walljump, vault over ledges, swing from vines, and much more
  • Magic powers earned from sneaking allow you to extinguish light sources, teleport through walls, even temporarily freeze time, and more
  • Choose from four playable characters with their own stats and unique abilities that gear them towards different playstyles, like Sensei Shoji's environmental camouflage or Sharpshooter Kaida's slowing down time while taking aim

  • "Sneaky Ninja is the sort of stealth platformer Nintendo might make"
    - Jeremy Peel, PCGamesN
  • "It has the bush-hiding, back-stabbing, and shuriken-throwing a stealth junkie could want, but stars cartoony potato matryoshka ninjas instead of boring regular limbed humans."
    - DESTRUCTOID
  • "Ninja come in several different varieties, but few seem to be as round or whimsical as those in Stafall Studios' Sneaky Ninja."
