Coordination Game Ninflated Floats onto iOS

NinflatedAppStreet Games has today announced the release of Ninflated on iOS devices. The game stars a ninja named Nin, who is stuck in a bubble and must be guided through his environment via taps and drags on the screen. The game is described as “perplexing and fiendishly difficult,” as players become accustomed to the controls, only to have them swapped for more challenge.

In each game of Ninflated, players guide Nin’s bubble ever upwards, through gateways in horizontal barriers on the screen. The space between two barriers is color-coded, and contains a picture of the controls players are to use to move Nin through that section. For instance, left and right arrows on an orange background indicate that players should tap and drag on the left and right sides of the screen to move Nin. Dots, meanwhile, indicate that players should tap rapidly on one side of the screen to make Nin move, and so on.

If players survive long enough, sections containing swapped controls are added, so tapping or dragging on the left side of the screen would actually move Nin to the right, as one example (these particular sections still have the control prompts, but the sections are white, instead of their normal colors). Players can compare their scores with others on GameCenter leaderboards.

“We’re thrilled to be launching Ninflated and we’re sure it’s going to be a huge hit with anyone who loves these tricky little coordination games! The smartphone community has gone crazy for these types of games over the past year, and we’ve worked hard in development to put our own twist on it and ensure it’s totally recognizable as an AppStreet Games product,” said Vijay Sharma, director of of App Street Games, in a statement.

Ninflated is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store.
