NaturalMotion brings Clumsy Ninja interactive character game to Google Play

After a successful launch on iOS in late 2013, NaturalMotion has released Clumsy Ninja on Google Play for Android devices. The app is described as an ‘interactive character game,’ which utilizes NaturalMotion’s Euphoria technology to make the character as believable and lifelike as possible. In the app, players will help their ninja grow as they complete quests.

In Clumsy Ninja, players can interact with their ninja by tapping or holding on the screen to lift him into the air, walk around the environment and more. Via the character’s ‘dynamic intelligence,’ the ninja will sense, feel and react to each swipe or touch on the screen, and will evolve and learn as players continue to interact with him.

Since the ninja is literally clumsy as players begin, they’re asked to complete quests and train the ninja to become more agile and athletic. This involves helping him jump on a trampoline or kick a punching bag, among other activities. These training sessions are mini-games, asking players to keep the ninja active for a set amount of time to earn mastery stars and unlock new ninja moves.

Gamers can also play with their ninja, tying balloons to his body to see him float into the air, or dressing him up in new outfits. While the game is free-to-play, gamers can spend real money on premium items in the game’s store.

Clumsy Ninja was downloaded more than 10 million times during its first week on iOS. It’s now available to download for free on Google Play.

Zynga announced its acquisition of NaturalMotion in January 2014. You can follow the company’s games, including CSR Classics and CSR Racing, on AppData, our tracking platform for mobile and social apps and developers.
