A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Easy to pick up and play. The
only control in the entire game is tapping on the screen -- anywhere on
the screen -- at the right time to make the main ninja character jump.
Good hand-eye coordination is a must, and it can become tricky to time
the jumps perfectly all the time, but this is a game that
virtually anyone would be able to grasp within seconds.

Violence

Players jump from side-to-side up narrow passageways in order to avoid being hit by hazards, e.g.
birds. In so doing, they often end up hitting the birds, causing them to
disappear in a patch of feathers. There are also occasional "boss"
battles, like a giant octopus. Hitting the octopus causes its tentacles
to break off, revealing small spots of blood. Even though attacking
creatures is an integral part of the game, the game itself is presented
in a very casual environment, lessening the impact of the content.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that NinJump Deluxe HD is an extremely basic
game where the only control is to tap the screen to make a ninja
character jump as he races up a vertical chasm. However, even though the
publisher of this game submitted it as appropriate for all ages and
claims there is no violence, attacking creatures that are in the way is a
vital part of the game. There are even boss battles that contain a small amount
of blood. That being said, because of the cartoony presentation and the
focus on perfecting the gameplay rather than the violence itself, the
impact of the violence is lessened. But it should not be dismissed
entirely.

SWEET

Really fun! Only thing to be concerned about is that you can slice off a sea monsters tentacle and it is a little bit red. No blood.

NinJump

NinJump is a good game. It has some violence and that is why I would recommend this for kids 4 grade and up.

Is it any good?

NINJUMP DELUXE HD is a simple jumping game about timing when your Ninja should jump from one side to another of a vertical arena.
It probably won't provide hours of entertainment to players, but rather
short bursts of 15- to 20-minute gameplay sessions to cure temporary
boredom. There's very little substance to it, yet it is fun. It's a game
that can be played in the car, in the waiting room, or even in
situations where players have to hold their iPad and only have one hand
free. Its accessibility and the level of ease to jump into the game are
its high points, and to that end it does a good job. This iPad version adds Pirate and Jungle levels not found in the original NinJump.
