Ninja Captains contains cats, minigames, tomfoolery

I love colorful games, but sometimes there's a line between vivid and bright and just simply too much color. Look at that screenshot from Ninja Captains up there, for example. It's like your eyes just vomited rainbows, isn't it? Maybe it's ...   read
