Your Afternoon Ninja

By John Walker on June 27th, 2008.

Awww.

It’s impossible to resist a ninja. It’s all part of their cleverness. So this afternoon’s distraction from work is Bowja The Ninja 2.

It’s cutesycute ninja point-n-clicking from Pencil Kids, in a Mateusz Skutnik/Jakub Dvorsky style, where you’re tasked with recovering a rocket and escaping a base, mostly by finding the clickable objects, and a couple of simple puzzles. Brief, but sweet. (Via IndieGames)

By Alec Meer on August 29th, 2007.

This may be the first in a short series, or it may be a one-off post of disheartened misery. Either way, you’ll soon be able to make pretty exact estimates about how much willpower I have. As mentioned yesterday, I’ve had a strange, some might say futile and insane, desire to take a poke around the Ultima Online overhaul, Kingdom Reborn, for a while now. It’s the father of the modern MMO, and, not being seriously internetted in its heyday, I’d never played it previously. So, I was curious to see how it compares to its many colourful children. It was released this week, and so I did.

After the jump: becoming 0.2% better at hiding, and accidentally turning into a rabbit. Read the rest of this entry »
