It's every ninja for themselves in the ultimate battle for the Jade Katana! Fight alone, team up or take on friends in brutal arena-based combat where the mighty prevail and the weak pay the ultimate price: death and dishonour!
The year is 199X and the world teeters on the brink of total destruction. The mystical Jade Katana, stolen! Its power, so lethal! In the wrong hands, humanity will fall! And so the Viper Clan, sworn guardians of the Jade Katana, prepare to embark on their most perilous mission yet: retrieve the sword at all costs! Use katanas, shurikens, bombs, machine guns, shotguns, bazookas and more as you battle your way through a variety of locations to become the ultimate ninja and fulfill the ancient vow of the Viper Clan.
• Intense local multiplayer action for one to four players, either competitively or co-operatively... you choose!
• Six distinct game modes - Last Ninja, Battle, Coin, Crown, Arcade and Infinite - and five unique locations - Temple, Dojo, Downtown, Museum and Area 88 - each with their own gameplay features.
• Customise your ninja, then use a range of deadly ninja (and not-so-ninja) weapons to destroy anyone who gets in your way!
• Awesome stereo techno soundtrack by Matt Gray... feel the retro vibe!
Playing Ninja Shodown reminded me a lot like the games I used to play on old Nintendo consoles, but this time it has better controls , better gameplay and better visuals and a competitive multiplayer mode of course! and including local coop and multiplayer portion to the game has made it even better especially when you have a friend in your home to play with or trying to find someone online to compete or play with. the gameplay is fast paced and really needs fast reactions some times, so you really need a good controller for maximize your joy of this game. the level design in both single player and multiplayer, controls, AI and musics of the game are all really great and together they will entertain you for hours and hours especially of you are a fan of these kind of games!
Quite an excellent action game with a retro feel! (coming from the famous publishers Rising Star Games no less) Works very well in both single-player and local multiplayer modes (the game features both versus and co-op modes, divided into many unique submodes spread over multiple distinct locales, each with their own distinguishing gameplay perks). You play as a member(s) of the the Viper Clan, an ancient group of ninjas that have guarded the incredibly powerful Jade Katana. The goal of the game is to retrieve it from the ones who stole it, for the world is doomed to total destruction otherwise. The gameplay is centred on taking on hordes of foes in closed environments at a fast pace, accompanied by a quality old-school techno soundtrack, of course. Also memorable and distinctive compared to many similar games are the ability to customize your ninja(s) to your liking and the variety of weapons you have at your disposal, ranging from katanas and ninja stars to many unorthodox weapons (for ninjas), such as guns, bombs, and missiles. Highly recommend for both old school and modern gamers!
