Sample text

Tengen’s Nintendo Entertainment System port is based on the Sega Master System game, although it suffers from terrible graphics and shaky gameplay, like all of their conversions. The additional closeranged weapons are gone, the vertically scrolling stages have been redesigned into horizontal stages, and Joe can only toss a single projectile at a time. The ninja on the title screen is also amusingly cross-eyed. The PC Engine version, converted by Asmik, is closer to the arcade game, with decent (if somewhat darker) graphics and similar gameplay.

Although Sega’s Shinobi (a word that’s basically a synonym for “ninja“), initially released in 1987, was not the first ninja game, it was one of the most popular ones. The hero, Joe Musashi, started slicing up terrorists and created the path for scores of other cloaked assassins. Birth of the Ninja Beginning life in the arcades, Shinobi’s gameplay style changed quite a lot as sequels appears on consoles and portables. Despite these alterations, there are common threads throughout the games. Taking place in a near futuristic setting, you’ll fight against army men and ancient Japanese demons, as well as biological monsters and robots.

The home computer platforms received several ports, with roughly the same differences as Shinobi, only MSX and IBM versions were not made. The 8-bit computer versions lack music, but otherwise they’re more complete than the Master System port.
