As Hiro, you must once again defeat the ninja lord Havok. Using ninja throwing stars and other weapons, you must defeat the minions of Havok to reach him.

Switchblade II is a side-scrolling platform action game. One key aspect of the game is obtaining coins from defeated enemies, which can be traded at shops for extra lives, energy, and weapons.


Switchblade II Amiga A huge cannon firing at me. It's easy to avoid being hit, as it always fire in the same directions.
Switchblade II Amiga I have to watch out for that flying enemy. If it hits me, it pushes me off the elevator I'm standing on. If you fall to far in this game, you will get injured.
Switchblade II Amiga At the end of each level, you will face a difficult boss.

Type 'Chrome' on the title screen to access a hidden game. Other than its main sprite the game strongly resembles Venus the Flytrap, and it was apparently a partly-developed sequel to the game which was never completed in its own right.
