A great side scrolling action adventure (also known as 'Ninja Cop' on PAL regions) developed on Nintendo GBA.
 
Review
Ninja Five-0A ninja cop named Joe Osugi, battles a group of evil ninja masters and the terrorist cells under their control. The time has come to put your skills to the test when an evil terrorist group gets a hold of an ancient evil power known as the Mad Masks. These artifacts, which have been guarded by ninja clans for countless centuries, hold great magic - bestowing whoever wears the masks unimaginable power. It's Joe's job to rescue innocent people who have been taken hostage by this group, and defeat the various leaders who are using the Mad Masks for their own wicked advantages.
The game features ninja swords, (unlimited!) shurikens, ninjutsu magic and a kaginawa grappling hook system to create acrobatic moves (probably the most important item in your inventory) in the style of Bionic Commando.

The game features plenty of thumping beats! I found the intro music score excellent, while the in-game theme is pretty nice to hear! Note that the game has a few impressive SFX featuring digitized sounds (screaming, explosions etc). The graphics are pretty I believe, having small sprites but of excellent animation (lots of frames) and very nicely drawn backgrounds. The game certainly does not tax the hardware, though. This is a standard side scrolling action with no real special effects to wow jaded gamers.
