Ninja CommandoSTORY / GAMEPLAY
You are a Ninja, jumping over pits and dodging obstacles and defeating other ninjas is the only way to survive! Every few alien kills grant you with a weapon, starting with shurikens, grenades, a flame thrower and finally a machine gun! Enemy ninjas attack randomly comong out of openings and buildings and your ninja is instantly killed upon a contact with any enemy or when falling inside a dangerous pit. Enemies that just appear from an opening will flash for 1-2 secs and will not kill you! Note that each level has a bonus (points) timer but overall the gameplay is quite tough.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The game on the ZX features nice visuals though they are mainly in black and white. The game's sprites, although tiny, they look cute and move nicely but the scrolling suffers from occasional slowdowns. The sound on the ZX is almost absent, with only a few sound effects during gameplay.
