Good grief, another Ninja game? Oh well, here we go. Strap meself up in black clothes. Get the old shurikens and razor sharp dragon tongue sword... Coo, its a lark, all this mastery of the Light and Dark, walking through walls and jumping without moving, innit? Right, off to work.

You are a Ninja, whose solemn task (they never get funny tasks do they?) is to rescue a Princess from the clutches of some evil martial arts and magic genius. You can pick up weapons and throw them. You even get them back sometimes, too! You must chop, kick, punch and leap your way through rank after rank of fierce and deadly ninjas. Not forgetting, of course, the Karatekas and Thugs (Refugees from Yie Ar Kung Fu?)

Not a bad game, really. Shame the version I got wasn't terribly finished. It kept crashing and bits of graphics got stuck on the screen - a shuriken I dropped on the first screen hovered in the middle of all successive screens! If you can get it to work, though, it's a pleasing little duff 'em up, and worth a look.
