Fantastic action platformer; cartoony but heavy on fighting.

CHOP CHOP NINJA is a mini-classic in the app gaming world, and it's easy to see why: The point-to-run, tap-to-attack controls are incredibly intuitive, making this a pick-up-and-play game for almost anyone. The characters are colorful and fun, the game has an entertaining little story and a whimsical spirit, and the levels are creatively designed with hidden extras to discover. It's a whole new way to play 2-D platformer games, and it definitely works. And though you'll be tapping like a madman to battle all those baddies, the game isn't all hack-and-slash -- there are plenty of points that require you to think strategically or puzzle out how to reach a hard-to-get area. While the adorable-ness of the characters can appeal to young kids, though, the game is definitely heavy on fighting, so make sure you check it out before passing it on to younger players.
