Review of 'Ninja Spirit'

Rating:3 User: Alessandro Grussu

Converted from the Irem coin-op, Ninja Spirit is a side-scrolling game similar to Green Beret but set in feudal Japan. As the main character Tsukikage (the human incarnation of a supernatural being known as the great white wolf), you have several weapons at your disposal and must run through several levels full of enemies before facing the final boss, the Last Warlock.

The game is altogether not bad, but its real weakness are the graphics. Little use of color and overly detailed backgrounds in some levels mean it's not very easy to see what's going on. Unless you are severely visually impaired, you should nonetheless be able to have some fun with this competent, although not outstanding in any way, conversion.
