    This classic ninja-action game first appeared in arcades in 1985 and became instantly popular. As the Iga ninja named "Kage," players embark on an action-packed quest as they move toward a magic castle where the Princess "Kiri" is held captive by "Yohshirou Yukikusa." To stay alive, players move vertically and horizontally through forest and castle environments and execute massive jumps, all the while using throwing-star knives and a sword to take down hordes of enemies.

The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987):

    A DARING RESCUE



    Centuries ago, in the era of the Edo Shoguns, Japan was attacked by a band of mystical villians. In the ruthless assault, the beautiful Princess Kiri was kidnapped. No one has been able to rescue her since--not even the bravest Samurai warriors. You, Kage, a daring young Ninja warrior, are Princess Kiri's last hope.

    GAME PLAY: Armed only with two swords, special star knives and courage, you must deliver Princess Kiri from the hands of the evil warlord, Yoshi. Your every move will be challenged by a host of terrible characters including the fire-breathing monks of the dark forest; the bomb-throwing evil Ninjas of the secret passageway; and the fearless guards who relentlessly patrol the castle where Princess Kiri is behind held hostage. Will you be able to rescue her? Will you become a legend in your own time? Only game play will tell!
