Mystical Ninji DX
Mystical Ninji DX is an interesting platformer that happens to be a unique Mario fan game.
The game takes a somewhat different approach both graphical and gameplay wise:
The characters and the game world itself look like if they were taken from darker universe of the Mushroom Kingdom.
Another thing that sets the game apart is the fact that it features gameplay mechanics from different platformers.
Your bare hands act as your standard weapon but you will also collect many other weapons such as a boomerang cross, kerosene, bombs, hammers, darts etc.
