Graphically, Ninja Spirit is impressive, both the character sprites and especially the backdrops are very detailed. Parallax scrolling is superb, some of the best I've seen. I've only two niggles. Firstly, It's too difficult and secondly there's no continue play option. Solving one niggle would probably compensate for the other, so it's a pity that this great game is spoiled by both. Check it out, though.
Zero (May, 1990)
Obviously all ninja games have bits and bobs added to them in an attempt to stand out. Some of the enemies and weapons are fun; the burning belt is particularly neat, ideal for getting onto those crowded rush hour buses. However, quite a few sprites are disappointing in the looks department, though they're well animated. Basically (he said in his best conclusion type voice) this is a pretty standard ninja game. Not particularly special but a good example of its type.
Identical to the Amiga version right down to the ninja slippers, the ST looks and sounds exactly the same; it's good - but not that good.
Power Play (Jul, 1990)
Technisch ist der Ninja-Eintopf ganz passabel und bietet selbst auf dem ST tadelloses Scrolling. Der übertrieben hohe Schwierigkeitsgrad und die dürftige Originalität machen Ninja Spirit aber zu einem Fall für die Kiste mit der Aufschrift: "Spiele, die man in zwei Monaten vergessen haben wird".
All das hat man schon zur Genüge gesehen - hundertmal, tausendmal. Wenn also ein Programm in puncto Spielkonzept so gar nichts Neues zu bieten hat, so sollte wenigstens die technische Ausführung in Ordnung sein, will man es noch reinen Gewissens dem Verbraucher anbieten. Doch gerade in dieser Hinsicht hat ACTIVISION kläglich versagt.
