Former Husker QB releases new iPhone game "Tiny Ninja Jump"

Last March, we learned Husker quarterback Taylor Martinez created iPhone games as a hobby.

It appears TMagic is back at it again. Tuesday night he tweeted a promo for Tiny Ninja Jump, a game created by TTM3 Inc.


The game involves a tiny ninja sliding down hills with the goal of getting from start to finish as fast as you can while performing tricks to earn points. It has a single player and multiplayer mode.

Features, according to the App Store page, include: 

  • Extremely fun
  • Fun and playful theme
  • 5 different characters to choose from
  • Multiple upgrades

His level of involvement in creating and designing the app is unknown, but we've reached out via Twitter for more info.

It also appears Martinez has some involvement with Candy Mountain Racing, a similarly styled game. 

The quarterback often takes to Twitter to challenge followers in the game.

Martinez, who graduated in December, majored in ethnic studies and sociology, but designed iPhone games in his spare time. 

"There's not much to do in Nebraska, so you just start thinking of ways to make money," Martinez told CBS Sports last March.

His first app was called Follow the Pattern—think Simon Says for iPhone—however it is no longer in the App Store.

Martinez was one of the most prolific quarterbacks in Husker history, holding the record for most career starts, total yards and passing yards at Nebraska. He injured his foot in September and only played once after that. He's preparing for the NFL draft.
