Description

Shinobi III involves a ninja named Joe "Shinobi" Musashi (you) going and kicking some bad guy butt, in this case his old enemy "Neo Zeed".

In normal Shinobi style, you are presented with side-scrolling playfields which you must slash and shuriken your way through, to meet the end boss of each round.

Development

The original UK release went back to the drawing board for a few extra 'tweaks' and the result was the horse riding and the surf sub levels.
