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 just a bad screenshot.

Ninja Captains is a new minigame collection coming in October from Nordcurrent, which has you following the adventures of four ninja cats as they travel across the world to major locals like Tokyo and Sydney carrying out nutty tasks. I do have to hand it to Nordcurrent in that this could be one of the most realistic reasons for wacky minigames to be happening, but on the whole this looks like kid and/or family fare. Not that that makes it bad, mind you.

There’s a gameplay video after the jump, if you’d like to see more. What’s your favorite minigame compilation of all time, by the way? I don’t think it gets much better than Rhythm Tengoku, but that’s just me.
