Introducing Ninja Robot Winning Gameshow

Published • June 16, 2009

Can anyone else say, “About time!”?  I’ve had this almost ready to release for quite some time.  But I wanted to add some finishing touches to it.  There are more finishing touches that I’d like to add, but at least now it’s to a point where I feel like I can let other people download it, play it, and rag on it.

Before I give my blurb about the game, here’s a gameplay video.  If you’re a super anti-spoiler type person, it does show how to get past the first few levels.  They’re not that great of levels though.

(Editor's note: Upon rewatching this video I realize how bad it is, especially the audio. But I chose to leave it here for historical purposes.)

So the idea here is that you can switch which direction gravity pulls.  I thought that seemed like a kind of robot-y, ninja-y sort of thing to be able to do.  I guess you’d classify this as a puzzle platformer?  I had a couple of aims in making this game.  In no particular order:

I’m sure there were some other aims too, but those are the ones I could think of right now.

So what’s in the future for Ninja Robot Winning Gameshow?  There are some improvements that I’d like to make at some point in the future.  I don’t know that I’ll actually make any of them, much less all of them.  But it’s a list, and we all like lists, right?  When and how many I make will probably depend on how many people ask for them.  So if you want them, ask for them.

Is that a big enough list of improvements for something that’s just barely being released?  I hope so.  Makes me feel depressed. 🙂

Enough talk.  On to the game!  The game requires the .NET Framework 2.0 or later.  I created it on a dual core 1.7Ghz machine with 2GB of RAM.  On my machine it uses almost no CPU power, so I’m assuming it will run on something with much lower specs. To install the game, simply unzip the files and put them somewhere.  Run NinjaRobot.exe to start the game.  You move around using the arrows keys.  Jump using the control key.  When you’re playing you can press ‘N’ to switch to a different music track (actually a random music track, so it won’t always be different). A couple of hints:
