Disc Ninja Review – A Good Shot In Multiplayer
by ZhinanZhang on Aug 09, 2021
Developed by Immersion Games, Disc Ninja first appeared last year through Steam early access to little fanfare and after several updates, they’ve brought it to Oculus Quest. Structuring frisbee around golf’s stroke play, you won’t need pinpoint accuracy to finish these courses, nor are there comically oversized golf holes. Rounds are finished by hitting a Gold Dragon at the course’s end, ranking your number of throws. Disc Ninja is a surprisingly intuitive experience, one that takes time to master the maps, though several flaws hold it back from greatness.
Offering 15 maps, player performance is assessed on a three (ninja) star ranking system, earning more for reaching the Gold Dragon with fewer throws. Should you fail to earn any stars, you won’t unlock the next map, making this crucial to progression, but reaching the end is rarely simple. Many maps feature environmental obstacles like bottomless pits, rotating windmills, and broken bridges to obstruct your goal. Misjudge your aim and land out of bounds and that’s counted as a throw. Land on a lower part of the map and you’ll lose progress.
