What is Ninja or Die: Shadow of the Sun about?

As mentioned above, Ninja or Die is a fast and unique Roguelite, but the playstyle is different to other titles of its kind. For one, you only use one button for everything. There’s no walking or running, and you defeat enemies by jumping on them. You can super-charge your jump to attack harder, but you also need to time your dodges too by jumping out the way.

Everything from sharp drops and deadly projectiles are hurled your way. There’s a mix of procedurally generated and hand-crafted levels too, while instant respawn and permanent upgrades, not to mention new challenges with a stage randomizer, keeps things interesting. All the while, the game encourages you to ascend the Infinite Watchtower and run the Infinite Corridor, visualized through a pixel art aesthetic.
