Simple Rules and Flashy Ninja Skills
There is a health gauge on both the player and enemy and once the player loses their health, the game is over. Use your shifty Ninja skills by jumping and attacking your enemy. Destroy all enemies to clear the stage.
Attack the enemy’s footing or destroy enemies to pick up powerup items such as Invisible Potions or the Minecart, which will allow the player to plow through enemies.
Activate ninjutsu action through collecting scrolls—such as flood and fire ninjutsu. Then, Ninpo Gama Pakkun will trigger fever time. You can swallow stunned enemies with Gama Pakkun.
Unlock Your Collection
If you collect a certain number of Gold Pellets or Souls, you can exchange them for Jalecoins and be able to play more characters. Enjoy the variety of characters with unique moves.
You can also collect Jalecoins to unlock songs or game documents. You can enjoy old BGMs from JaJaMaru classics or enjoy new song and arrangements for this new title. There are also game documents that are only going to be able to be seen in this game.
