5.0 out of 5 stars Pocket-sized ninja warriors, 22 July 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Shadow warriors - Game boy - PAL - CC (Game Cartridge)
I was pleasantly surprised to find Amazon even listed this obscure little Game Boy classic.

Shadow Warriors is the precursor to the highly-regarded recent Ninja Gaiden series (it's known as Ninja Gaiden Shadow in the States), and in it you play hardened ninja Ryu Hayabusa, who is charged with defeating an evil dark emperor whose name I forget, after he takes over New York and unleashes his army of demons and evil ninja-types.

It's a simple side-scrolling action platformer, with some occasionally taxing level design and great bosses. Ryu comes equipped with a sword, fire spell and grappling hook; the latter is used to navigate the levels or sometimes escape from/resposition yourself against the bosses. The music is utterly fantastic - its little electronic ditties are arguably more character-filled than most big game soundtracks these days.

The controls are responsive, the visuals great and it perfectly embodies the great design and simple, refreshing gameplay that the Game Boy thrived on. Definitely worth checking out for retro fans.

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Shadow warriors - Game boy - PAL - CC (Game Cartridge)
This game has all what belongs to a action game - action, good sound and a varied gameplay. By the way it is fair and almost every gamer can reach the end.
