Personal review

"Ninja-Kun: Ashura no Shou" is the sequel to Ninja-Kun: Majou no Bouken. It's bigger (31 levels!), and more varied than its predecessor. In some levels you have just reach the exit, other levels require you to kill all enemies. There are underwater swimming passages, some levels go mostly up, others go from left to right. But it's still not really good, because the game is hard. Really hard. Unfair hard. You know the typical climbing up a wall and with bad luck an enemy sitting at the edge which you impossibly can avoid? This game includes lots of those scenes. And the controls are not the best. Wall jumping, despite being necessary in later levels is hard to put off for example. One of those games that gave me lots of trouble finishing despite an endless lives cheat and save states.
