Ninja Warrior - or Sasuke - is one of the most celebrated and punishing competitive sports shows to find its way to television.

It combines elements of the World's Strongest Man competition with an obstacle course that would test the agility of a superhero - so its potential as the basis for an exciting and challenging game is pretty high.

Unfortunately, this potential is never realised in Ninja Warrior Game, and after a few rounds you're left feeling as frustrated as someone who just face-planted her way off the spiderclimb.

Enjoyable in short bursts, Ninja Warrior Game struggles to clear the first obstacle and likely won't advance to later rounds
