Those pesky Pandas and Ninjas are still going at it. First we had Pandas vs. Ninjas and now XIMAD has released two additional Windows Phone games that carry this conflict further.
Kung Fu Tic Tac Toe and Ninja Breakout are both free, ad supported games available over at the Marketplace. Will the ninjas finally get the upper hand over the panda? Or will the panda continue to take center stage?Ease on past the break to catch to short takes on both games.
Kung Fu Tic Tac Toe
XIMAD takes the classic game of tic tac toe and brings pandas and ninjas into the mix. The game has one and two player modes (two player is pass and play) with two choices of game boards. You have the traditional 3x3 and an expanded 6x6 board.
Players are also given the choice of playing the role of the ninjas, who slice their "X" marks, or the pandas, who punch the "O" marks. Beyond that, Kung Fu Tic Tac Toe is your typical game of tic-tac-toe. XIMAD does give the game a nice twist and Kung Fu wasn't a bad way to pass the time with.
You can download your free copy of Kung Fu Tic Tac Toe here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.
Ninja Breakout brings the panda/ninja conflict to a good old game of breakout. You play the role of the panda and you send your little panda friend hurling through the sky at ninja blocks. You have to keep the little panda in motion by bouncing him off a platform the panda is holding.
The panda movement can be accomplished by touch or by using the phone's accelerometer. Bonus items will occasionally fall from the ninja blocks to help you along your journey. Once you've destroyed all the blocks, you advance to the next level (40 in all).
As with Kung Fu Tic Tac Toe, Ninja Breakout is a free, ad-supported game that you can download here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.
Wrapping it all up
The panda/ninja conflict has produced three entertaining games to pass the time with. Kung Fu and Ninja Breakout ran smoothly with no glitches or crashes experienced and both would be nice additions to your Windows Phone game library.
I'll give them both a rating of 6.5 as good games. Ninja Breakout gets a slight edge for the amount of gaming involved.
