Here it is: you can download it here http://dl.dropbox.com/u/17368315/NinjaConvention.zip
Its a 2 player stealth game based around both players using the same screen.
Instructions
PRESS ENTER TO START and skip replays
The goal of the game is to kill the other player.
Player 1 uses the arrow keys to move and enter to shoot.
Player 2 uses WASD to move and space to shoot.
There are two parts to this game:
Part 1: When the game begins neither player knows which ninja they
control they must figure it out (try shooting).
Part 2: Once a player has found themselves he / she should start hunting the other player.

This game was awesome. Had a little session with Netsu here and man, did we love it. So simple!

It seems to me that the other ninjas only go in one direction and then stop before going in another. This way you can find out which is yours without shooting.

Actually they sometimes will switch direction before pausing. The way I always find myself is by going right until I see a ninja stuck on the right side of the screen. There are also a few other subtle differences between the A.Is and the players here they are:
-Players can move diagonally.
-Players can go further off screen then A.Is before meeting the boundaries.
You can also uses these to figure out who you and the other player are.

Hi Knight, great game!

My only feedback is that I think it's too easy to figure out who your Ninja is.  I start every session wiggling around and shooting. If other NPC Ninja's mimicked these tactics (wiggle, shoot a few stars), then it would take longer to figure out who you are.

I love the minimalist graphics -- great job on focusing on the gameplay.

Best of luck!

Thanks Brice. Actually I wanted you to be able to find yourself very quickly so you couldd spend more time hunting the other player. Thought I may add some new behavior to the A.I soon to make them seem more playerish.

I think it's good how it is, it encourages the player to mimic NPC actions so they don't give away their position.

This is a damn bit of fun. The mindgames you play with your opponent get pretty crazy. Kill a foe to lure them to you, then take refuge in a crowd. Or hide in the very top corner of the screen and spring at them from the shadows. The strategies are only limited by the player's ingenuity.

Not too much new but I added fullscreen support(press escape to toggle it).
Hey guys should I add anything or keep the game as it is?

This is good fun. Would it be possible to integrate it with some of online flash game multiplayer APIs ? Like say Nonoba's API ?

Thanks kvjoshi. I have never actually seen that api and I must say that looks cool but for now I want to keep this game hotseat only.

Have you seen Puji? Sounds like the same game:

Actually I've never seen that before but I guess no idea is unique  Shrug . I think even though the idea is the same, the pace and style of the games are actually different enough. It seems puji is much more time focused(with the sudden death) and takes a very different visual style than Ninja Convention. There are also other differences such as the player movement. But if you happen to know how to get in contact with the devs of the game I'd love to talk to them and assure them I am not trying to steal what they had put out.
