iPhone App Review: Ninja Fall Down

iPhone App Review: Ninja Fall Down

September 30th, 2011 by

Combining two hit genres, ninjas and falling down, developer Smobile Co. has released Ninja Fall Down. Using the iOS device’s accelerometer, guide your stealthy through gaps in the floor of an ever-heightening tower. Gather magic power-ups and use your special ability to help you gather coins and avoid disappearing off the top of the screen. There is even a store where you can spend the coins you’ve gathered in the game on improving the frequency and effect of the power-ups.

How It Works

Ninja Fall Down is a simple tilt-and-tap falling-down game. Tilt the device to guide the ninja to gaps in the floor, so that he can fall down farther and avoid the top of the screen (where he dies). The map is constantly streaming upwards, increasing in speed as the game goes on. Tapping makes the ninja jump, and holding the tap activates a power that lets him fall through floors (at a cost of power).

There are several power-ups in the game. One adds mana to your Chakra (used for your special ability), another increases your speed, another causes you to teleport around the map gathering all of the coins. Coins you gather can be spent in the Store, available from the main menu, where you can improve the game’s power-ups.

Pros And Cons

Ninja Fall Down is an addictive, well-made title that’s fun and easy to pick up and play at any time. The levels are endless, so it’s all about beating your score and gathering coins to make future attempts easier through improving your powers in the Store. You can also use the in-app purchase feature to buy stacks of coins.

The graphics and sound are good, and the game gradually ramps up the difficulty by speeding up the map as you descend further and further towards… well, I don’t know what. There’s a story to the game somehow, but it really doesn’t matter that much.


Ninja Fall Down is a great little game that provides hours of casual fun that can be enjoyed in very short bursts of play. The ability to spend coins in order to change the frequency of power-up drops and their effect gives this falling-down title longevity that others in the genre may not have. It’s fun and original style, along with solid and addictive gameplay, makes it a winner.
