I’ve been playing a neat little action game lately called Nikujin. The jist of it seems to be that you’re a naked ninja who’s been hired to break into a castle and take out some old guy, all the while dealing with all the other naked ninjas on the way in.

You can find out more about it here with Xander’s excellent review for TIGSource.

Anyway, I’m bringing this up because, as it turns out, it’s an awesome skill game. And I get very competitive about these things. Here’s my speed run at the practice level. (It’s my first youtube video!)

Apparently I’ve already been beaten… 😥

    Whoa, that game looks intense! Might have to check that one out sometime.

    It’s quite a lot of fun alright 🙂

    Appartently the creator, Ikiki, is something of a Japanesse Cactus, but it seems he’s almost totally unknown over here – so Derek Yu is currently playing through all of his games at TIGSource. If you like Nikujin, Hakaiman is worth checking out as well!

    So, have you beaten the main game yet? 🙂

    If you have, can you beat it without dying?

    I’ve beaten the main game, but compared to you I really suck at this! 😀 That’s awesome man!

    So, I guess that rules out the “secret levels” theory Xander proposed… hmm, maybe if you finish the game with no deaths, killing all the enemies and within a “certain” time?

    There is no special levels, I’m sure about it. I’ve beaten game without dying, killing all the enemies and without being seen in under 10 minutes, and there isn’t any special levels. There wasn’t ones in the older versions, I don’t think there are any here.
