A downloadable game for Windows

The Ninja Way is a classic platformer where you do all the usual stuff like jumping, running and dashing. Except, you can only do one at once! Apart from walking, your mobility is limited to only 1 ability. Sometimes overcoming obstacles would require ninja like precision, by changing your abilities in quick succession. If you are reading for the challenge, come and learn the Ninja Way!


Move your character with the left and right arrow.

Change your abilities by pressing the buttons 1, 2 and 3, Jumping, Dashing and Running respectively.

Use your ability by pressing Space.

To pause the level press Escape.

The team:

All coding, without an engine, from start to finish and game design were done by me - steli2!

All textures, including animation, were done by Chuckuddin, definitely follow him on twitch! https://www.twitch.tv/chuckuddin

The amazing music was done by Gizmodude8128!

Due to the time limitations, the controls aren't that well explained in the game itself, but it's still recommended you check it.

Install instructions

Download the archive and extract its contents. To play the game press the .exe file.

By the nature of C++ exe files, your anti virus might detect it as a false positive. I deeply sorry if this happens to you but there is no other way :(

I get this error when I try and open the .exe.  I downloaded and extracted it all right.  So I'm not sure what it is.
