Mini Ninjas Demo Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 9 comments

Feral Interactive has announced the release of a demo for Mini Ninjas. Developed by Io 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.

Are you ready to follow the path of the Ninja? Some would start their journey at the foot of Ninja Mountain, but we reckon you’d be better off visiting our downloads area and getting in some practice with the Mini Ninjas demo. We won’t tell the Ninja Master, we promise!

Mini Ninjas lets you take control of six diminutive but deadly warriors on their quest to defeat the Evil Samurai Warlord. Using dark Kuji magic he is transforming defenceless animals into armies of Samurai, trampling across feudal Japan and upsetting the balance of nature. Using their skills in magic, stealth, swordplay and extremely large wooden hammers, the ninjas are the only ones standing between the Evil Samurai Warlord and world domination!
Check out the demo at the link provided below.

Apple Games Features Toy Story 3
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has posted a new feature article about the recently released Toy Story 3: The Video Game. The game allows players to experience adventures from the film and also offers "open-world" gameplay. Apple's article includes commentary from senior producer Vince Bracken and a look at the history of Toy Story.

Toy Box mode, an open-ended experience that Bracken says “allows more freedom for kids to do what they want, as opposed to doing what is required next. That also opens up access to parents who can jump in and out of the game as time permits.”

As you complete missions in Toy Box mode, you unlock new toys, buildings, accessories, and other objects. You can then easily customize the game world, allowing you and your kids to, as Bracken explains, “celebrate the power of imagination and joy of play. An example of this from the game is how we magically pop in all of the mini-race car track pieces all over the main part of the town while playing with the mini-racer. We did that because that’s how some of us used to play with our toys as kids: we’d build a western town and then do jumps over it with our race cars and tracks.”

He goes on to note that his favorite toys in Toy Box mode are the bandits. “I can’t wait for them to rob my town,” he says. “Throwing them into jail is very satisfying. They’re also incredibly funny: I enjoy watching them torment townspeople by making them dance or holding them upside-down and shaking loose change from their pockets.”
