Mac|Life has posted a new review of Mini Ninjas. Developed by Io Interactive and brought to Mac by Feral Interactive, Mini Ninjas follows the young ninja, Hiro and his friends as they travel through spellbound lands to do battle with a magical army of animals-turned-samurai.

From the review:

In this insanely addicting third-person action-slasher, you play as Hiro, a young ninja who’s been asked to save the world from the Evil Samurai Warlord, who kidnaps precious animals and turns them into his sword-wielding samurai minions. Journeying through a fictional version of Imperial Japan, Hiro and his small team of ninjas battle these hordes and eventually bring down the Warlord in his Fortress of Doom. The 17 massive levels (with five boss battles) are packed with collectible Jizo statues, plants for making potions, and coins for purchasing potions and recipes. You must also rescue the animals by defeating enemies and freeing them from cages to release their “Ki,” which replenishes Hiro’s health and stamina meter. You can also control these animals using magic spells.

Playing the game is like walking through a sepia-toned anime world. The characters possess exaggerated facial features, and each freed animal is just as cheek-pinchingly cute as Hello Kitty--even the supposedly threatening grizzly bear has a certain allure of cuteness about him. The mini ninjas themselves move in a quick, animated fashion, which simplifies gameplay a bit because we didn’t have to perform convoluted maneuvers to defeat a bunch of enemies.
