There are a lot of side-scrolling flash stunt games out there, and there’s so many of them that it’s getting hard to tell them apart from each other. Today’s free flash game solves that problem by incorporating a few twists into the overused genre.
First thing’s first, YOU ARE A MOTORBIKE-RIDING NINJA. That alone is enough to separate it from the rest of the stunt games featuring boring motocross riders. The whole game is consistent with the ninja theme, from the tricks, to the items being shurikens, even with the wipe-out animation. There is no wipe-out here. You are a ninja, after all. So when you crash, the rider just backflips out of harm’s way. Beat that, Mr. Motocross rider.
The controls are nothing special: UP arrow key for accelerate and Space Bar for jumps. One special feature is the addition of stunt keys – as opposed to one key for random stunts, Nitro Ninja gives you four different stunts mapped to the 1,2,3, and 4 keys.
Graphics are fairly decent, it’s no IonDrift Epsilon, but it gets the job done. The music, on the other hand, is top notch. The rocking background music certainly puts you in the mood for speed.
