Web Game of the Week: Ninja Cat and Zombie Dinosaurs

A typing game set in a seemingly post-apocalyptic world infested with zombie dinosaurs. Use your typing skills to destroy them!

Ninja Cat and Zombie Dinosaurs is simply what it says. You are a ninja cat set out to destroy zombie dinosaurs with your shuriken ninja stars and katana sword. Set in what appears to be a post apocalyptic Paris, Velociraptors, Pterodactyls, T-rexes and Triceratops await you.   

As your cat moves on its own, zombie dinosaurs with words underneath them will come rushing at you in an attempt to kill you. You must type out the words quickly and efficiently or risk losing points. From a distance, your ninja cat will throw shuriken stars at your enemies, but if they are close enough then it will us it's katana sword to slice and dice them. Katana attacks get a bonus of course, but they must be timed well to avoid losing health or even your life!

 

 

The game play itself gets very engaging and intense, even more so with higher difficulty options. It is not just about killing dinosaurs though, there are power ups and optional paths that can be taken using the same method. The game also features two mini-boss fights which will take you to the edge of your seat and improve your touch typing skills.

I always thought that my typing skills were excellent, but the sense of panic I get when zombie pterodactyls are swooping down completely throws me off. It is discovered soon that this game is just as much about keeping a cool head as it is about typing quickly and efficiently. What's more, characters such as apostrophes, exclamation marks and even spaces will be thrust in to throw you off. From single letters, words, numbers and phrases (mostly referring to films, books etc.) the game gives you a nice challenge. 

 

 

The presentation could use some work; the animation of the main character is stiff and so is that of some of the enemies. The sound effects are nice and give the game an edge, but the roars of the monsters can be repetitive. Nevertheless, the game is fun and engaging, especially when an enemy gets up close and your character resorts to his katana, this is an element that has been well executed. The game's art, design and code was after all done by one person, Hubert Rutkowski (check out his website), so some leeway should be given.  

Although there is not much of a story in the beginning, it is discovered at the end that the main villain is a huge  zombie Brachiosaurus which you do not fight in this game. But the creator does hint at a second game set in a different pat of the world apart, which is good news of course. It would be nice if the story is developed further, and of course for the ninja cat to kick more zombie dinosaur butt.
