“Overdrive” Brings More Sidescrolling Action to Android

Overdrive: Ninja Shadow Revenge (not to be confused with the e-book borrowing platform Overdrive) is a new sidescrolling action game that gives players the chance to play as a ninja as they slice through their enemies. Unlike the recently released ICEY, Overdrive opts for simple characters that amount to silhouettes with shading and lighting details, creating a Tron-like appearance. Combat is handled using the game’s virtual joystick and a combination of the jump, dash, and attack buttons, while sequestered in blocked off segments that occur between the game’s light platforming portions. Outside of combat, players can upgrade their gear and follow the game’s story when it’s told through comic book style scenes.
