REVENGE OF SHINOBI
Mega Drive PAL 1990
Argued as the best Shinobi title ever this game brings back Joe Mushashi in one of
the most popular Mega Drive titles ever. In this game are after the corporation of
Neo Zeed who has kidnapped your girlfriend.
As most side-scrolling platformers go you progress your way through missions
across varying environments ranging from a valley of waterfalls to an urban scrap
On Route will be thugs, ninja’s, samurais amongst others attacking you. You defeat
them using your sword and shurikens. To assist you is Ninjitsu (Ninja magic).
Thrown in will be the odd obstacle such as laser beams and bottomless falls etc.
There are plenty of bosses to fight which ultimately resulted in there being 3
versions of the game!
At the time the graphics in the game was the best and the soundtrack is still pretty
acclaimed as one of the best for a game.
Another sequel Shinobi 2: Shadow Dancer appeared in the arcades but was never
ported to any Sega console.
The Revenge of Shinobi was released in the arcades and an unrelated version has
recently been released for Gameboy Advance.
The Mega Drive version appeared on the Mega Games 2 3-in-1 collection and the
Sega Classics 5-in-1 collection for the Mega CD.
