jump

Ninjala was a pleasant surprise, it reminds me of a cross between Sunset Overdrive and Splatoon. I'm honestly surprised Ninty didn't make a bigger deal about it.

@crashcontrol
I wasn't able to, but I heard it worked a lot better than the first beta.

Please give Ninjala a chance, guys. 🤔

Is anyone else thinking that they might switch from Splatoon to Ninjala, once Ninjala releases?

I found trying Ninjala to be a confusing ordeal. Turned it off.

I played a few rounds. I'm not a top tier gamer, so it may just be me, but I felt like once I got whacked a few times there was no way to escape from it and I was KO'd, had to respawn. It got frustrating.

Agreed. It could be me being old and just sucking (probably), but the game seems incredibly irritating and unbalanced. It's also pretty boring in my opinion. I feel I should give it more of a chance though.

Unfortunately, I don't play competitive multiplayer games much anymore, so I doubt I will be giving this one a go even though there is single player content available with a purchase. I also didn't like Splatoon 2 very much, but that is just me.

I love this game!

I hated it at first - it felt like there wasn't a solid rhythm to the combos and mechanics but after playing for awhile, its very comfortable! The parry system is annoying at first but once you understand it, things get easier and you'll know what to do and why to do it before long. Most players are absurdly obvious with how they'll attack and if you have enough health, you can manage to engage them in the parry system long enough to figure out what their rhythm is. And thats honestly all I need. If they can't beat me in he first turn clash, I get in their heads. Of course, for those who don't feel comfortable with it, there are options on neutralizing other players' movements to avoid it.

The movement is great and freeing too! I haven't quite learned if all movement options are refreshed once you touch the ground or if you can spam them when you have enough energy, but in one instance I was fighting so much that I hadn't touched the ground for a whole 30 seconds. Which is pretty cool! The customization isn't bad, but thats only when you see nothing wrong with sinking money into it. Outside of that, you probably won't even get to wear an outfit you like. So many players I've seen are higher levelled then me (I'm level 24 at the time of writing this) and they're all wearing the generic beginner outfit and that's ridiculous. At least reward your players with something for playing so long.

One aspect of Ninjala I absolutely hate is the gum (weapon cosmetics). Since it adds nothing to the gameplay but are still paying money for it and it's not even something you get to keep. Like, you're paying cold hard cash that you won't get back, and the cosmetics are TEMPORARY. They run out after a single use unless you have more than one. And that's ridiculous because even paying 0.80 should guarantee you something to keep. Why are the clothing and the like permanent but the gum isn't? I heard from someone on twitter that this is justified because "no one likes to chew the same flavor gum all the time. This is the same" but the fact that you remove that choice from the player completely is utterly stupid. I, for one, don't touch any flavour other than strawberry chewing gum so that's out the window. It's just encouraging no one to buy them at all, let alone use them. They're next to being useless.

Outside of that, I'm enjoying the game so far and hope they make a few changes for the better here and there.

Never take anything I say seriously. S'all you buddy. ;)

The running on the wall mechanics and the games vibes are cool but I’m not finding the combat all that great to be honest and the arenas could be better. I’ve only played about 4 matches so maybe I haven’t found the groove yet.

@jump This is the first Battle Royale game I've enjoyed but I agree with you about the combat, the attacking is fine but the luck based countering and lack of real blocking is an issue, also I find the city arena to be too complicated for so few players, and spend more time looking for 'enemies' than actually fighting them.

it loses 3 points from me for the luck base combat in one time use skins.

Nintendo is like woman, You love them for whats on the inside, not the outside.

Yeah the single use items are ridiculous, especially when you're paying for them. I know it's free to play but c'mon.

Awesome, thanks for letting me know anyways, though. 👍
I posted it and then realized you guys had covered it, lol. 😆
I just wanted to let you guys know, since somehow the last Ninjala update slipped through without being reported on.

I'm asking because there's less than 10 comments in that article, so I figured I would ask here.
