Shadow Dancer

Shadow Dancer is the follow on to Shinobi.  Actually that’s not a very fair description.  Let’s try again.  Shadow Dancer is Shinobi.  There that’s better.  No, I don’t mean the character (though of course it is), I mean the actual game.  It’s Shinobi…with a dog.

Level design, layout, gameplay, it’s virtually indistinguishable from the excellent original.  Just updated with a new lick of paint thanks to the souped up System 18 arcade board.  More colours, bigger sprites, better animations.

To be honest I did find the basic gameplay slightly tougher than its predecessor but this is compensated somewhat by a dog who can pin bad guys down for you and more Ninja Magic to clear crowded screens.
