Review:

I don't remember ever seeing this game in any arcades, or hearing about it in magazines, and now I know why. Simply put, this game isn't terrible, but it certainly isn't very good.

Basically, this is just a vertically scrolling shooter with ninjas. You have your choice of 3 different characters with slightly different weapons, the only problem is...you can only aim upwards with your regular attacks. Yes, that's right (although you can press B to do a flip to toss a throwing star or two to the sides).

This game really does show its age, but even for 1992 the graphics in this game aren't anything special. Simple characters which are small and have few animation's don't really add much to the whole gaming experience, but I might add that the boss characters are large and well drawn. Seriously though, this could have easily been a first generation sega genesis game.

There's no way around this one, the sound just sucks. The attacking sound effect is the exact same one that's used in ninja combat (which was a much better game i might add). Other than the characters occasionally yelling, you have about 3 sound effects: an explosion, the enemies dying and uh...well, I'm sure there's one more. I'm sure a good long half hour was spent making the sound for this game.

This is a pretty poorly made game that's not too much fun to play. I can't say that I would recommend it to anyone, unless your really bored. The only enjoyment you'll get out of this game is reading the messages that scroll along the bottom of the screen "I am full of vitality", "EIEIEIEI", "I am getting excited", "I am so powerful".


Graphics: 6/10
Sound: 4/10
Game play: 4/10
Replay Value: 3/10

This game is not very good, but if you want a similar style of game, then try:

Shock Troopers
Excellent top down shoot 'em up action...

Shock Troopers 2
... and it's sequel!
