Super House of Dead Ninjas combines fluid controls, retro gaming aesthetics with modern improvements, and lots of style without overdoing it, into a fun and fast paced platformer/time attack meets roguelike.
First and foremost the game handles like a sports car. I've played too many PC platformers as of late with slippery movement (I'm looking at you Spelunky) but it's very satisfying here. It really focuses on your reaction and skill which strives to make you improve. Very few deaths aren't your fault and the game rewards you for building upon your developing ability.
The pixel graphics aren't perfect but they aren't bad either. I do appreciate that while it has the retro angle going for it, it doesn't fall into the retro traps of being overly difficult or intentionally confusing. That said, later areas of the game can get *hard* depending on which mode you are on, but the learning curve is never unfair.
There are also a fair number of bonus features beyond the story mode. There are tons of unlockables, different weapons and spells, even costumes if you have the patience. I've also had a good bit of fun messing around in the level editor. While not terribly robust it shows how far you can truly push the game engine and your own abilities.
The game isn't perfect, there do tend to be glitchy parts (more than once I fell out of the side of the tower) but overall it is a well put together and fun package. You will probably get more playtime for your money here than many other games out there.
