Elusive Ninja: The Shadowy Thief

Bulletproof Outlaws has released their first game, Elusive Ninja: The Shadowy Thief. In this fast paced game, you are a ninja who is being attacked and you must evade the dangers in order to survive.

  • Epic full-screen visuals
  • Behind-the-scenes Bonus Features for game developers and gamers who've thought about getting into the industry
  • Leaderboard support (both OpenFeint and Apple Game Center) so you can compete with the whole world or stick to one-upping your close group of friends
  • Achievements (OpenFeint and Apple Game Center) to give you some extra challenges to shoot for when you've got your skills rockin'
  • Super tight controls, and a difficulty curve that's challenging but not impossible - the AI gets smarter the longer you last but there are a few strategies to discover and master that'll help you survive the most chaotic situations!
  • An abundance of flashy art and explosions!

The graphics in this game look very smooth and the bright colors make for a fun environment. I also love that fact that the developer has included the behind scenes details of the development of the app. Very cool.

Elusive Ninja: The Shadowy Thief is available for $1.99. Screenshots and video trailer after the break.

Bing for iPad has just received an update and added in a few new features. Bing is Microsoft’s alternative search engine) or decision engine as Microsoft likes to call it).

This new version introduces several user experience updates and a patented gesture based way to make searching easier with *lasso*. Simply lasso a word or phrase with your finger to do a search instead of copying and pasting into the search box. Search the way it was meant for the iPad.

I have never actually tried Bing myself but I would like to after seeing it in the video, which you can see after the break. Unfortunately Microsoft, for whatever crazy reason, hasn't made it available outside the United States!
