Here's a quick question for you. What happens when you take a great game and port it over to another platform? You can either expect a great port, an awful one or a mediocre one. The home computer version of Shinobi is sadly a mediocre port of the great of the same name on the Sega Master System. Luckily, it's not so bad, like Super C for the DOS, but it's neither as good as its console counterpart and suffered some bad game design. First of all, the controls indicate a small problem: they feel stiff. Even though how I felt about the controls, they at least feel responsive and not so complicated at all. Because of this stiffness, some of the attacks may be delayed, which isn't good at all. The animation in the game is also bad, so bad that you need to see the above video in order to understand. There are only 5 levels in total in the game, making it quite short. In between these missions, there are bonus levels, which aren't done so well due to the stiff controls and bad animations. The graphics, while not the worst I have ever seen, are quite ugly and unappealing and the lack of music makes this game quite boring. Overall, Shinobi isn't a bad port of the original game, but it's not even a good one. If you can look past the problems I have mentioned above, maybe you can find this game to be decent.
