A brief internet phenomenon, pirates vs. ninjas was a way of self identifying as either a mayhem loving rabble rouser, or a boring but stealthy pajama wearing freak. (Can you guess which side I am?) Pirates vs Ninjas Dodgeball tried to cash in on this meme as well as the retro-coolness of the grade school dodgeball. The end result? Cute in concept, bad in delivery.
Pirates vs Ninjas Dodgeball is a simple game, the rules are much like gym dodgeball, except you can attack, which will make the opponent dizzy, and perform special moves. And instead of red vs blue, you play as either a pirate, ninja or the unlockable robot or zombie horde."
