The game is mostly remembered for its morbid continue screen, where the player character is tied to a table thrashing his head violently while a circular saw is being lowered towards him.
This is a two-player team effort game. Both eight-way joysticks have a button on top to grab onto to poles and swing-kick your opponent. Each Ninja has five techniques: the Triple Blow combo, the Flying Neck throw, the Hang Kick, the Phoenix backflip, and the Tight Rope technique. Players can throw their opponents into trash cans or phone booths to break the items and reveal a secret bonus inside.
The object is to fight your way through six U.S. cities to collect items, destroy the assassination squads, and defeat the end bosses.
How to Play
The controls consists of an eight-way joystick with a button installed on top and two additional action buttons for attacking and jumping. The button on top of the joystick allows the player character to grab onto any overhead bar or tightrope and hang from there. There are five primary techniques performed by pressing the joystick and buttons individually or in combination with each other.
