In this page the Jurojin and Boss Ninja battle begins! The villain starts the duel with a Charged Kunai, but the Jurojin evades it with a Kawarimi log dodge! Their fight continues tomorrow so check back for another page of action! You can read more about these in-game powers in our Powers Library!
Flip back to page 1 and notice the Snake Clan star constellation in the sky. In our game, when mortals die they become a star in their family's constellation and spend eternity with loved ones. Jurojins are immortal though, so it's a costly price to pay!
Can't wait until tomorrow for the next page? Get a sneak peek at Jurojin.com!
Congrats, Cenex! You won! Your power name was added to our Powers Library!
Send us a private message on Facebook so we can get you the gift card prize. Aside from these prizes, your Jurojin will also receive an in-game special effect so that your opponents know you were a contest winner!
During GDC we recorded 9 minutes of multiplayer gameplay footage from an iPhone. After a quick intro screen, here it is in an unedited version to show you exactly what intense games of Jurojin look like!
By pinching the touchscreen on iOS & Android devices, you can zoom in on your Jurojin to do a Chakra Focus. Normally this regenerates your chakra but if you do it next to a Contention Stone then it absorbs the chakra energy from the stone in three short stages.
Whoever uses Chakra Focus to absorb the third release wins the Contention Stone and receives a Chakra Bonus point, as well as some other stat bonuses that are seen on the upper right interface. The other player receives less stat bonuses when an enemy captures a Contention Stone.
By using powers in matches players cause the chakra stones to illuminate one by one, which sends a pulse ring through the entire map to lead you to the next stone to be captured. The first player to capture four stones wins the match!
Visit our Jurojin Powers Library to learn the powers you can use!
We promised to unlock a new page of our Jurojin manga for every 20 contest entries, and you guys have been coming up with lots of great ideas so far! You just unlocked page two!
Flip through page one and two and notice how the Snake Clan arranged rocks around a chakra stone to mirror their snake constellation in the sky. You'll have to unlock more pages to find out the significance of the stars and why they worship them!
Our giveaway contest runs through the end of the month and you can enter on Facebook every day, so keep entering to unlock more pages on our contest page.
We want YOU to name a special evasion power in our game!
We want to involve the community in our upcoming game as much as possible each month, so this is your chance to create the name for one of our powers! An evasion skill in our game confuses opponents by making a clone of your Jurojin character when they strike you, and your clone also creates a clone when struck! Which one is real?! Below is a video of this unnamed evasion power being used to sneakily steal all the chakra from a contention stone in Jurojin: Immortal Ninja, and we're letting you decide what this power should be called!
For every 20 name ideas that are posted on our Facebook, we'll release another page of our new Jurojin manga! The winner will also have their character in our game receive a glowing special effect to show other players your contest accomplishment!
The winner will receive a gift card for their choice of a $15 iTunes gift card (US residents only) or a $15 Amazon gift card (non-US residents can request a card for their country's Amazon store page of $15 equivalent value). By entering this contest you're giving Critical Bacon Games your consent to use your power name entry in our game. The contest begins now and will end at 10 PM EST on March 31st.
You can submit one name idea per day, but only by commenting the name on this Facebook contest post using a #Jurojin hashtag in your comment. We will pick a winner based on which name best fits the power's visuals while also representing the result of using it in a game. If the same power name is submitted by multiple people, then the first one to submit it wins!
The winning power name will be announced April 2nd, and the winner will be given their gift card promo code through Facebook. They will also receive the honor of being listed in our Powers Library as the name's creator! Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and our new Tumblr page! Good luck!
Behold! This is page one from the new manga for our upcoming free to play game, Jurojin: Immortal Ninja. Just like our game, the manga is also free!
Our action combat mobile game will offer some of the deepest and most strategic gameplay that iOS and Android devices have ever experienced, but we also want to offer a deep world full of lore to go along with its characters and items. Volume one of our manga will help introduce you to the exciting life of Jurojins and the elemental powers that are literally at your fingertips when you play as one of them in our game.
As you can already see below, our game's Ninja Boss makes an appearance as he mercilessly battles the Snake Clan warriors! Will a Jurojin save the mortals before it's too late? Will the Ninja Boss refill his energy from the Snake Clan's chakra stone and continue his path of destruction? Volume one answers those questions while showcasing several of our game's devious and devastating powers.
Check back every day because we'll be releasing new pages from our manga over the next few weeks. Jurojin will be released this Spring so start studying the Powers Library now to come up with combos and strategies that let you dominate your opponents when our game is released soon!
Critical Bacon Games is attending the Game Developers Conference!
You bring your hands and we'll bring the bacon. Actually, we got hungry, but we have something even better for you to hold: all week long we'll be letting people try out our upcoming free iOS and Android game, Jurojin: Immortal Ninja.
You'll get exclusive hands-on time with Jurojin before it's launched this Spring, and can ask us for gameplay tips and tricks for dominating your opponents. When it's released soon you'll already be a pro at casting powers and know all the best juke and trap spots on the map!
