About The Messenger

About this game

As a demon army besieges his village, the young ninja ventures through a cursed world, to deliver a scroll paramount to his clan’s survival. What begins as a classic action platformer soon unravels into an expansive time-traveling adventure full of thrills, surprises, and humor.

  • Dynamic, acrobatic gameplay and ultra-tight controls are worthy of an epic ninja adventure.
  • Character upgrades, new abilities, hidden levels, and branching paths to discover.
  • Meticulously designed 8-bit and 16-bit sprites, animations, and backgrounds in the spirit of the classics.
  • A memorable cast of offbeat villains, bosses, and associates.
  • Original soundtrack by renowned chiptune composer Rainbowdragoneyes, handmade using Famitracker.

The game is fun, breaking the 4th barrier more than once. However, it is also quite difficult and can be frustrating at times. So much so that I quit halfway through because the boss was getting on my nerves. So, if you have a low frustration tolerance or suck at gaming like me, better skip this one.
