Swearing to kill every capitalist on Earth makes you one busy ninja in Proletarian Ninja X, the Ludum Dare 27 competition entry by Sebastien Benard, the developer known as deepnight (Strike of Rage, Atomic Creep Spawner). There are so many capitalist pigs, in fact, that you only have 10 seconds in your schedule to assassinate each one.
A lot of your targets seem to congregate in the same bourgeois hangouts, so you can take out several per location. This is perhaps more convenient, but it requires more discretion. You'll fail if you are spotted, or if any corpse is discovered before everyone in the place is dead and you are long gone.
Controlling your ninja is done via an incredibly economic mouse-only control scheme. Simply position the cursor with the mouse and left-click to move and/or attack. You'll automatically hurdle over obstacles and deliver pixel-splattering blows of death to your victims. Right-clicking will throw one of a limited supply of shuriken. The controls are smooth, and allow you to move quickly and precisely.
Proletarian Ninja X is another awesome Ludum Dare game from deepnight. I really don't know how the developer does it. You can play Proletarian Ninja X in your browser on the game's website.
