Shuriken do better.

10 Second Ninja X is out now and goodness me does it ever make me want to smash my controller into little tiny pieces and then sprinkle those pieces over some breakfast cereal.

Unfortunately, as the video above can attest, I am not cut out for life as a ninja. What started as a quest to dominate Curve Digital's speedy platformer quickly descended into a desperate attempt to get just one three-star level rating. Have a watch below - apologies in advance. Please also be aware that this video contains some flashing images.
