Indie Impressions: Shotgun Ninja

With a name like Shotgun Ninja, you really can't go wrong. And while the controls are pretty fidgety. The game is easy and short enough that it didn't overstay its welcome.

The graphics are also super retro. But I'm old and like that sort of thing.

I'm the blob of pixels at the top of the screen. No. The yellow blob, not the red spurty blob. That's a couple guys I just shotgunned. If you hold jump, you can hang from the ceiling and shoot guys below you. It's pretty much the sweetest move in the game. :)

Also, here's a quick shout out to the creator of JoyToKey, Ryo Ohkubo. JoyToKey is a handy utility that lets you map keyboard input to a joystick (or in my case, a PS1
controller), which makes playing PC games that don't support joysticks much more fun. Thanks Ryo!
