Developed by Klei Entertainment -- the same team that made the game Shank -- Mark of the Ninja lets players take control of a silent assassin and use stealth as a weapon.

Being a ninja with a grappling hook, your character pretty much moves like a Jedi Spider-Man doing parkour through the streets of Manhattan. You can stick to ceilings, run up walls, scale building, swing through the trees or just dash through the darkness. The choice of whether or not to engage enemies is completely up to you.

If you choose the passive route, you can stylishly slip through the stages using stealth and cleverness to elude alarms and guards. On the other hand, if you want to get more aggressive, you can always sneak up on unsuspecting targets and dispense swift vengeance from the shadows with your impressive arsenal of ninja weaponry -- just make sure you don’t leave anyone alive who has seen you.

If you think you’ve got mad ninjutsu skills, Mark of the Ninja is out now and available to download exclusively on Xbox Live Arcade.
