This game had THE worst ending on the NES ever. Period.

You went all the way through the game, slaughtered all the bosses, beat the major baddie in the final level, and your reward?

A black screen with white letters reading, "GAME OVER." The exact same screen you see when you lose your last life during normal game play.

What a treat. :)

The fact that they had to define "Shuriken" proves the lack of general public familiarity with the ninja mythos at the time, heh.

Yeah, if you were a child in the 80s, you knew what Shuriken were. If you were older, you called them "throwing stars" or "Chinese stars". Thank goodness I was a kid in the 80s. :)

One of the many things I like about older games is how simple the in-game artwork is. It left a lot up to the imagination, whether it meant to or not. I remember when a friend and I pretended we were Billy and Jimmy Lee from Double Dragon playing around this parking garage area that had ladders.
