Ninja Gaiden / Shadow Warriors - updated

Hack of Ninja Gaiden

Description:

No major change in gameplay but:

  • Some sprites of strange/ugly enemies have been replaced by most common ones (exit bikers, boxers, armored dogs and football players).
  • Some damages have been changed. Eagle: damages reduced from 3 to 1 (3 = no sense for a simple bird) ; Green Ninja: increased from 1 to 2 ; Bomberhead’ sickle: from 1 to 2 ; Bloody Malth’s lightning bolts: from 3 to 4 ; Jaquio’s fireballs: from 1 to 2 (that’s a challenge!)
  • Various graphical adjustments (for example, no more flickering in Barbarian’s sprite).
  • Some palette changes.
  • Bloody Malth don’t move his buckler anymore.
  • Barbarian’s axe is now a little more dangerous.
  • Time Freeze has been removed from the game (the level 6-3 was really too easy). Replaced by a simple bonus.
  • And others little changes!

I hope you will like this new version of this great game!

Awesome Hack

Reviewed By: Lodan-Zark on 04 Nov 2017

This hack make the game feels more natural and fair than original game which result as better experience and for that reason alone I recommend this patch.

I just wished the knockback effect would be removed or reduced which is a very antiquated, obnoxious and frustrating mechanic that results to unfair deaths specially when ryu gets hit by flying enemies.

I couldn’t reach the world 6 so I can’t confirm if the bug about dying in final boss makes the player going to 6-1 instead 6-3 got fixed.
