Flash[edit | edit source]

Afro-Ninja is best known for his 2006 game Territory War, which featured gameplay similar to the "Worms" series. Two teams would have groups of up to six stickmen, which would fight in one of a few arenas using boots, grenades, and rifles. Two years later, an online multiplayer version of the game was released. Now TW3 is released one of the best games ever with new weapons such as mortar, sniper ,rpg ,acid ,and teleporter.Plus the grenades have spins now which is different from TWO. Afro-Ninja has also made a number of "Escape" games, Newgrounds Sim, and collaborated with Zombie-Pimp and Eronn on House of 1000 Cats, the winner of 2008's Pico Day.
