Izuna the Unemployed Ninja 1 & 2

I'm playing the game; Izuna the Unemployed Ninja and I grown fond of both the game and the characters..

So fond that I have 3 of the wallpapers 'right-clicked' and saved into my laptop, Stellar.. I could show you 2 of the 3 wallpapers because I can't seem to find where I placed the last one.. Here they are:

1) Izuna

2) Izuna and Shino

So what's the game about?? Well, for the 1st game, the story is this:

Izuna and her ninja clan are looking for a place to settle down after their old master decided that ninjas were obsolete, and booted them from his castle. Upon arriving at a village that's suitably out of the way for their "Grandboss", Gen-An, they decide to stay at an inn when Grandboss wanders off.


While trying to find Grandboss, Izuna manages to offend the gods of the village, and everyone in the area starts behaving strangely. Now Izuna has to descend into the various shrines for the gods in order to set things right.

The game is quite easy to learn from the start.. You just go through different dungeons and find each elemental gods to help Izuna appease the gods, or so you think..

Well, this game still comes with special attack moves like this which I like to called Whimsical Blade or just "Hayate".. ^^

Another screengrab of the game..

Now here is the best part.. I went to Kotaku and found out that the sequel to the game is coming out.. Here you go..
Izuna's so moe.. XD

Key Features:
- Play hardcore with Izuna - Get in the action by combining down-and-dirty old-school dungeon RPG play with the cutest girl ninja ever, for a "stimulating" RPG experience.

- TAG team system - Take any two party members into a dungeon for a greater range of combat strategy. Combine power to unleash fierce TAG attacks.

New TAG-team feature totally awesome!!

- More Izuna than ever before - Get everything that made the original game a fan favorite, plus more! This bigger, better package includes more dungeons, items, enemies, characters, as well as a wacky new story, side quests, and TAG team system.

Well, of course you play Izuna forever.. There are other characters you can play too in the game..

Here is the trailer I found at youtube about the new Izuna game..

Overall I like the first game.. I don't mind if the first game is 6.6/10 or 66/100.. Heck, at least it's over 50%.. It's a good game really.. Thanks to Kotaku for the info about the game..

BTW, the game is abit hard to play for some people so don't be disheartened if you lose.. Keep trying till you beat the game.. I'm now currently in the middle part of the whole game and will finish it before Izuna 2 is out on 22nd July this year..

Oh, will also be happy if an anime of it comes out in the future.. ^^

    When I try to play Izuna 1 on no$gba, the game stays at the "saving data" screen when I try to enter the first dungeon "snake hole." Do you know of any way to fix this?
