Ninja Gaiden on the Atari Lynx is a direct translation from the original coin-op arcade classic. All of the original moves are retained, as well as the enemies, round bosses, cinema displays, and power-ups!! Learn to master the various techniques like the off the wall jump and the over the shoulder flip throw. Follow Hiryu through all 5 levels as he attempts to rid New York of an evil crime syndicate.
An excellent conversion of an excellent game. Ninga Gaiden hits the mark on all counts. There are lots of good moves and the scrolling is very smooth. Lyke Warbirds, this shows what the Lynx is capable off, even with its small screen. One of the best Lynx games produced.
Ninja Gaiden on the Lynx is probably the best version this side of the original arcade game. It also has the smoothest scrolling and the animation of all the Lynx titles. Very intense action for the small screen and not a cakewalk as some of the other games were.
Ninja Gaiden is very impressive. The animation, graphics, and game play are all there. It is the best translation of the arcade game. Lots of moves and a ton of enemies to use them on. The sound could use a little work. Ninja Gaiden is definitely one of the best game for the Lynx.
Nice job, dudes! The Ninja Gaiden coin-op never looked better. Maybe a little. Anyway, this is still a marvelous job done bringing home one of the most popular action games of all time. How they got it all into a little Atari Lynx card is beyond me!! Keep 'em comin'.
