.A band of miniature but mighty ninjas must work to restore peace to a world on the edge of destruction in this fighting game with a colourful visual twist. Eidos may be better known for gritty and mature titles, but Mini Ninjas manages to add a much-needed dose of colour to the world of fighting games. The Mini Ninjas are young, but their skill in martial arts more than makes up for their lack of experience. Players can take on the role of one of three of these ninjas, each offering up their own unique abilities for the job at hand. Hiro, the youngest of the group, is best for all-round combat and Futo is slow but strong, while Suzume is the most light and agile of the bunch. As well as facing off against hordes of on-screen opponents with traditional martial arts, players have a selection of more spiritual powers at their disposal, including the ability to control the powers of nature. On Nintendo DS, a series of multiplayer mini-games are also on offer that utilize the touch screen and stylus. Mini Ninjas may look colourful and simple on the surface, but beneath is a rewarding fighting game worthy of any fighting fans attention..
