A nice compact metroidvania with an appealing art style and grappling hooks!
The only con I can think of is lack of fast travel which makes backtracking a real slog.

A solid metroidvana where your face is a tablet that makes funny and cute expressions, while the hookshot mechanic makes you feel like a deadly spiderman, and it all controls extremely well. Took me about 7 hours to complete.
Graphics are nice and the soundtrack is fucking slammin. Like a traditional metroidvania you'll get new abilities and weapons which were all a treat. Bosses are a lot of fun too as their patterns are really good and not just damage sponges.
My only gripes with the game are that yes there's places to explore and items to get, but most of them are useless hats that for some reason many indie devs love to put in their games nowadays. There's life pickups to be found to extend your health bar, but nine out of ten times I would get let down because it would be just another dumb hat. Also, the ending is...well there's hardly one at all. With all the dialogue from meeting npcs and from your chief throughout the game, the ending leaves a lot to be desired.
All in all though I enjoyed it as it's another solid game in the metroidvana genre.

The game is fun but the last boss was a bit disproportionately hard; even with all powerups maxed out I couldn't beat him and ended up just quitting. Otherwise the rest of the game was a blast and very polished.

This game is really fun. It's simple and enjoyable. Plays a lot like a mix of Mega Man Zero and Metroid. I love this kind of pixel-art. And playing as a ninja-hitman iPad is pretty cool. Oh, and you get hats that you can wear for cosmetic effect. They don't add bonuses, they're just something cool thrown in by the devs.
Highly recommended.

TL;DR: Really good game, minor issues, would recommend if you liked hollow knight or similar metroidvania style games. 9/10
Really good game, definitely underrated. Reminds me a lot of hollow knight which I greatly enjoyed and I love the weapons. The facial expressions are amazing, and the hats are awesome. I would highly recommend this game to anyone who was a fan of hollow knight or games similar. All that said this game does have it's issues, minor graphical things such as your hat not showing when you do flips or when going by hidden areas you can see the fake wall clip through the real one. But those aren't much of an issue, my biggest one is the fact you can't change controls while in a game, you have to go back to the main menu. Which doesn't seem important but when you're trying to rebind and see what works, it's annoying to change the bind, go into the game, realize it doesn't work well for how you play, then have to go back to the main menu. I hope the add the ability to rebind controls while in the game and I expect great things from their future games. 9/10

I enjoyed the ninja theme but some areas really drag on

Review from Steam

Hard to give this game a simple recommendation. It looks cool and has some cool mechanics, but the overall experience is not that much fun.
Movement and combat feel rather sluggish with some mechanics that don't make any sense. If you strike a target with your katana you are pushed back a bit which often leads to losing control, falling into spikes etc. Feels just like bad design.
The other problem I have is, that most levels are huge but empty...just isn't fun to explore. Smaller, nicer designer maps would have made the experience a bit more memorable.
You will fave fun for a few hours if you can get it for a small price....but it's nothing memorable.
