Play as the ninja Maru in this action-packed side-scrolling game that will take you on a journey across the world. While Maru is out for a walk with his girlfriend Cori, an evil samurai named Muramasa suddenly appears and kidnaps her. In Maru’s efforts to track her down and rescue her, he must face a number of mythological monsters while gaining new and powerful weapons in order to defeat them. Using the hints that are left behind by his enemies, Maru will follow a trail that will lead him across six different locations – including the bug-infested forests of America and the scorching deserts of Egypt. Help our hero on his mission as he fights to rescue Cori.
