Card Ninja has consistently been ranked as one of the most popular games in the iTunes App Store.

The game recently received a significant update which most importantly includes the ability to save your game for maximum level-conquering and you can now compare scores with other players worldwide. Card Ninja is integrating with the OpenFeint platform, allowing players to monitor their rank in global leader boards and chat with fellow players.

The game itself requires players to flick cards at their matching targets.  As you advance through the different levels the targets become more challenging.

The cards themselves are made from Ninja themed comic book illustrations created by artist Fernando Ruiz of Archie Comics.

The help screen gives a brief overview on how to play the game.
