Ha, I missed this little gem of a game. It recycles the graphics and music of the original. I'm guessing it did not feel very responsive to play on an old phone though.

The enemy spawning engine would have to be adjusted considerably to function this way, sending multiple enemies at the player at a controlled rate and requiring their defeat before allowing the player to progress. It can be done, and I've mapped out a good way to do it over the years. The appeal is that you could create a room of enemies that would effectively serve as a boss, and then you would not have to create the AI for a boss. It would also work well for other games like Bionic Commando, Batman, Kabuki Quantum Fighter, Shatterhand, etc.

I'll get to it on Ninja Gaiden one day...
