Greatest Steve Jobs Satire App Ever Hits the App Store?

Ninja Steve for iPhone

Ninja Steve is a little different to your typical approved iPhone game. It doesn’t stand out for its amazing graphics or some ultra-cool new gaming engine. It may hold the title for best ‘Taking the Piss Out of Steve Jobs’ game though, right out of the box.

It’s based on an alleged incident in which Jobs was detained at a Japanese airport due to carrying ninja stars in his carry-on luggage.  And it looks hilarious.

In Ninja Steve, the user plays the character of Steve … CEO of electronics company Xicidis. Steve is delivering a keynote, announcing their new video game Super Steve Brothers. During the keynote, Smartbots (who bear a striking resemblance to Google’s Android) begin attacking the CEO and the only way he can fight them off is with his trusty Ninja stars.

The app has 17 levels for now, and the devs have promised that if they hit 10,000 downloads by the end of this year they’ll add GameCenter support and a The Woz character.

I’d second the verdict of the good folks over at KRAPPS on this one:

While Ninja Steve might not be on the same playing level as Infinity Blade, the game is absolutely hysterical in its likeness to all things Steve Jobs. It also represents major milestones for Apple … NOT taking themselves too seriously and NOT getting their panties in a bundle. Bravo Apple! This breath of fresh air is well worth 99 cents.

You can find Ninja Steve in the App Store now. Let’s get downloading, so we can see Woz and more characters soon. My vote for next cast member is Steve Ballmer.
