Wall Jump Ninja - Atari 2600
As a ninja, you already have many skills. But there are many more to learn. Today you will learn the legendary technique of the "wall jump". Use it wisely, or face certain doom at the hands of the death beam.
To play, first adjust the difficulty switches to your liking. The Left difficulty switch toggles LAVA On/Off. When lava is off, you can use your teleport ability to zip back t o the top of the wall if you slide too low. The Right difficulty switch toggles HARD mode on On/Off. Hard mode makes spikes and other obstacles appear much sooner.
- Press FIRE to begin your training.
- Press FIRE to WALL JUMP. HOLD to jump higher.
- Avoid the Spikes.
- Collect N-I-N-J-A to use your Ninja Dash.
- Do not let the death beam hit you!
Jump through the room exits and achieve a new personal record!
If you have an AtariVox, AtariVox+, or SaveKey, your records will be saved between sessions. Restart your Atari with the FIRE button held down to reset saved scores.
Wall Jump Ninja includes the game cartridge, and four-page, full-color manual. Wall Jump Ninja is available in NTSC, PAL50, and PAL60 versions, please select above when ordering.

If you'd like a boxed copy of Wall Jump Ninja, please select "Box Upgrade: Yes" at the top of the page before adding Wall Jump Ninja to your cart. Our boxes are professionally printed and include a box insert to hold your Wall Jump Ninja cartridge in place. We want you to play our games, so we have not sealed or shrinkwrapped the boxes in any way, allowing you easy access to the game cartridge and manual.
These boxes are the same size as boxes Atari produced for their games "back in the day". They look great sitting on a shelf with your other boxed homebrew games, or alongside games from the classic Atari 2600 library. We only have a limited number of boxes for each game, and there is no guarantee they will become available again once our supplies are exhausted.

Wall Jump Ninja is a modern-style game converted to an old-style system, and it is very well executed.
Wall Jump Ninja is extremely addictive and the gameplay is super smooth. Highly recommended!
Un Ninja che salta da muro a muro trovando sempre nuovi ostacoli nel proseguo del gioco, si sposa perfettamente con il 2600 che in soli 4K riesce ad appassionare vecchi e nuovi giocatori.
Con la piccola periferica chiamata ATARIVOX si ottiene il massimo da questo piccolo capolavoro, registrando tutti i preziosi record personali e d'indomabili amici.
This game is nothing short of amazing. It is simple old school platforming at it's finest. While one may question the fact this game relies on a single mechanic, it is the essence of Atari style games to keep things simple. With all the fancy homebrews coming out, if feels fresh and new.
Your job is to navigate the obstacle course by sliding down walls and pressing the jump button to leap from one wall to the other. You need to be quick to avoid the lethal plasma beam while dodging spikes and levetating sparks while also avoiding falling into the lava.
There is a fair amount of memorizing patterns from one room to the next. You only can jump by pressing the single left fire button. The duration of your button press controls the height of your trajectory, giving you slightly floatier jump gravity by holding the button down during ascent.
Wall Jump Ninja has 4 game settings by adjusting the left and right difficulty switches. High score for each mode can be individually saved to an AtariVox when plugged into the right controller port.
Gameplay is very addicting and the primary goal becomes surviving as long as possible and besting your old high score.
The visuals are simple but very effective, with high contrast black vertical walls and player sprites against a bright multicolored gradient background of horizontal lines.
Overall an easy 5 out of 5 ninja stars... :)
The game also records your high scores via AtariVox or SaveKey support.
