UPDATE: Ninja Steve was approved and is live in the App Store for $.99 -> LINK
The gameplay is very simple, Ninja Steve is all about fast reflexes and accuracy. The ‘Smartbots’ fly around until they get close enough to zap you. Touch an enemy to fire a shuriken. After a while you will build up a RDF, which is like an electromagnetic shock, shake your iDevice to activate it. There are three different stages and four different ‘Smartbots’. There are 15 main levels, plus 2 extra levels.
It’s a really simple game with a few Apple-like references but it gets a little stale and repetitive after a while but for $.99, Apple fanboys can kick ‘Smartbot’ ass ninja-style!
Remember when Steve Jobs couldn’t take his ninja stars aboard his private plane back in September? Maybe he should have used a smoke bomb to get them aboard.
Anyway, Woltz Media is developing an iOS game called Ninja Steve. It’s about a CEO named ‘Steve’ (no official affiliation with Jobs or Apple) that is also a trained ninja assassin.
They done everything, but nothing seemed to stop Steve’s company’s momentum. So the SmartBots decide to make a front attack at the heart of the company, during a Press Event at the HQ. They are going for all, aiming at the Source, only a Ninja will be capable of defeat the endless hordes of SmartBots.
Hmm, is it me or do those SmartBots looks a lot like the Android logo? This game will definately get attention (approved or not) because of it’s fictional take on Steve Jobs and his real-life ninja CEO skills.
