Ninja Jump, an upwardly mobile Windows Phone game

Ninja Jump is a simple, mildly challenging Windows Phone game that has you running up walls, dodging enemy ninjas and other dangers.  Consider it an infinity running game that has you running up the walls instead of across the landscape.  The higher you climb, the higher your score. 

Graphics are nice (although tiny), game pace quick and overall Ninja Jump is not a bad choice if you are looking for a casual game to help you pass the time with.

Ninja Jump is drawn up relatively simple.  The main menu has options to jump into the game, access the gaming options and visit the developer’s Facebook page.  Gaming options covers sound and music levels but the settings will not stick once you exit the game.  Having to mute the music and sounds every time you launch the game can be frustrating.

Game play is also drawn up on the simple side.  You have walls running along the sides of your Windows Phone.  You must guide your ninja up the walls, avoiding the various dangers by jumping from side to side.  Just tap the screen to initiate a jump.

Dangers range from explosive barricades to enemy ninjas who will hurl shuriken stars at you.   You also have birds and dragon like creatures that fly across the screen.  You can take the flying creatures out by striking them in mid jump.

If hit by any of the dangers, your ninja character will fall to his fate and the game is over.  To help you survive just a little longer there are protective bubbles scattered along the walls.  If you run into a bubble, it will protect you from one hit.

Game pace is quick and somewhat challenging and Ninja Jump does have a certain amount of appeal as a casual Windows Phone game.  However, Ninja Jump lacks that pull to keep the game from growing stale too quick.  On the plus side, the game is free so you will not be out much to give things a try.

Ninja Jump is available for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices and you can pick it up here (opens in new tab) at the Windows Phone Store.

  • hmm ... this is a remake of ninjump :) ... good to get alternatives
  • The game i need the most is MINECRAFT!!!! We don't need alternatives of it, we need the original. Does anybody know if there are rumors or something???
  • this isn't the official games..
  • Isn't this Nin Jump? I clearly remember playing this on my android years ago.
  • This is a rip off..
  • There are so many such alternatives to ninjump : CJ strikes back ..angry chef .. Monkey jump etc.
  • Seriously, we need more Xbox Live titles. And as Kasparas said, Minecraft. Would be awesome to be able to play it on the go, even better if we could,continue with cloud saves from Xbox !
  • Not minecraft or even xbox live games. But that Clash of Clans!
  • Not the official one. Picture is neither crisp nor clear. Motion is not smooth (on L920). Deleted after played for 10 seconds.
  • I think CJ: Strike Back is better...same thing but it feels different in a better way
  • Its a pure copy of ninjump on android and its not great too even though lifted
  • How to scan that QR code on Lumia 620?
