Clumsy Ninja is a free app that is very different from typical Ninja games. Kids are into a mission of training a Ninja – from capable of doing no Ninja moves. The app is free to download, with In-App Purchase options if you want to move up fast. But we have managed playing it without any In-App Purchase, and I think it is more fun to play it this way, since it gives a little more challenge. Here are some tips for kids play clumsy Ninja without spending real money.
What is Clumsy Ninja
The overall game idea of Clumsy Ninja is simple. You train a cute boy into a Ninja. The Ninja character is very fun to interact with. He is even tempered, always stays positive, even when you are throwing him around. He will be rolling around if you tickle him. The best part, he always follows instructions.
What kids learn from playing Clumsy Ninja?
Parents can talk with kids that it takes practice to be better at anything, even for Ninja. Help kids pay attention at how Ninja’s moves change over time after different trainings. I think the game delivers a great message: practice makes perfect, every achievement takes hard work.
Tips for kids play Clumsy Ninja without spending real money
Clumsy Ninja is free to download and play. While playing the game, you earn XP points to move up levels, earn coins and diamonds to buy training items. There are In-App Purchases, and there will be occasions when you are tempted to buy coins and diamonds for new training items, thus able to gain XP faster and move up the levels quicker. Here are some tips on moving up the levels without spending real money.
1. Once you have earned 3 stars on a training item, meaning the ninja has mastered all skills that item can offer, you will only gain XP without coins. Depends on what you need the most at the time, if you need XP to move up levels, then use these old items that the Ninja has already mastered. If you need money (coins) to buy an item, then you need know using those items of 3 stars won’t give you any coins.
2. Make sure to put the Ninja in bed regularly. You gain coins for days that the Ninja stayed in training, and sleeping in bed is one factor that contributes to day counting.
3. Don’t forget to check the chicken cage. You will have an egg every day, and each egg makes 50 coins for you. But you have to tap on the egg to claim the coins.
4. Playing with Ninja without using any training items will give you XP. I have been throwing the Ninja around in different ways, pulling on one arm, pulling on two arms, holding him and spinning him in the sky, … all these give me XP points.
5. While in training, you have to adjust to the Ninja’s ability and offer some help to gain the best XP points. For example, when you throw the balls to him, you need wait till he is ready before throwing the next ball. If he did not touch the ball, you are not getting any XP out of that ball.
6. When you run out of ideas or all training items are “in repair” mode, ie. you can’t use it for a while, you can always try balloons. They don’t give you coins, but good XP points compared to the cost.
Cautions for kids play Clumsy Ninja
1. The app will ask you to share the game on social media by offering coins or diamonds. If you don’t want your kids access social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, then tell them not to sign up.
2. The game always suggest a new training item that requires diamonds, which is hard to earn, but can be purchased via In-App purchase. However, those items will be available by using coins if you move up a level. The coins are much easier to gain via playing the game. This means you don’t have to do what is suggested right away. Make your training choices wisely, you will be able to go through the levels without any In-App Purchase. If you are concerned about accidental In-App purchase, you can disable it.
