This game is very addictive. Gameplay is hard enough to keep you interested, allowing you to progress a fair way before being wiped out. Like most things oriental, after an hour you could do with another.
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
Unlike the high-quality C64 version which I looked at last issue, ST Shinobi is a bit of a sad attempt, featuring jerky sprites and watered-down gameplay It's not a bad buy at £7 99. but there are better titles around for the same amount of money.

Unfortunately similar to the Amiga version. Bland colours and simply drawn, crudely animated sprites are directly taken from the 16-bit commodore, but now with jerky scrolling. Very few samples, simple effects and warbling music round off the game, er, unpleasantly.
