Joe Musashi is no longer a sexagenarian!

Reviewed By: Red Soul on 25 Feb 2021

Billy TIme Games! does it again. It seems this person has a knack for making hacks I quite enjoy; after his wonderful SSF2T and EC: CotDS difficulty nerfs, this double jump timing change for Revenge of Shinobi makes all the difference in the world to me.

Vanilla timing always felt strange to me and areas that shouldn’t be difficult at all are because of how the jumping was handled. Maybe it’s my fault for being spoiled by (and much preferring) the Shinobi 3 - Return of the Ninja Master’s much faster and fluid gameplay.

Anyway, rant aside, this great hack should breathe some new life into a classic, since the hero doesn’t move like a tired old man anymore.

I’d love to see this hack expanded with a few more tweaks like the crazy light effects of the nightclub toned down during the fight with the yellow ninja; that part really hurts my eyes.
