If you've been whining for an extra bits update in 1-Bit Ninja [$1.99Lite], you can stop now. DogByte Games has you covered on that front, as its new ninja game, creatively titled 8-Bit Ninja, has SEVEN MORE BITS. That's, like, a lot.

Seriously, though, you should check this out. Taking place in a world where ninjas have tournaments that don't involve men with metal plates stapled to their heads, you play as a variety of tiny ninjas tasked with evading fruit after a demonstration of ninja-ness goes sideways. We've got some footage just below:

8-Bit Ninja will be free and it's due out at some point next month. We're going to bring you more on it in the near future, for sure.

    Reminds me a lot of Pang.

    Whatever happened to the upcoming mario-like iOS game where you evolve from 4-bit to 8-bit to 16-bit and so on? I remember a preview here on TA a long time ago but I even forgotten the name of the game since then. Anyone?

    Looks well done, but never was a fan of Pang and this looks to have that vibe.

    It's got more than its fair share of charm 😀

    I love the graphics, but I'd rather have a platformer than this.

    This looks like a nice pick-up game! I will definitely try it out, when it comes out.

    Looks very lame. Bah
