3 Ninjas Kick Back comes from the silver screen to the SNES in this below-average platform adventure. As one of three ninjas, you must rescue your grandfather from mobsters.
Most rental-only games aren't good enough to sell, and this game falls into that category. Graphically, the backgrounds are passable, but the poorly depicted characters give 3 Ninjas an 8-bit look. The good sound effects and music help carry the game.
The best part is the simultaneous two-player action. While the control is decent, trouble spots exist -- like when you try to grab swinging ropes. Fans of the film might like it, but others should avoid these new ninja kids on the block.
- In the first area of Level 2, this mini boss has the last Hem. Take the rooftop to the last mom to find him.
- To move the block and get the chest, stand on the trigger that's hidden by the tree stump on the left.
