NINJA COMMANDO is a vertically scrolling action game released by ADK in
1992. Players choose from among three ninjas—Joe, descended from the
Koga ninja; Rayar, a woman who has learned the ways of the Iga ninja;
and Ryu, descendant of the famous ninja Fuma Kotaro—as they pursue the
merchant of death known as Spider, who plans to use a time machine to
bring havoc to the world. The battle spans seven time periods, including
the Stone Age, the Egyptian era, and the Japanese Civil War era. Each
hero features a variety of attack options in addition to their own
normal attack, including a deadly attack that inflicts damage on all
enemies on the screen, special ninja-arts attacks performed by inputting
specific commands, and finally, a powerful attack unleashed by taking on
the “shape of the beast” when three scrolls have been collected. Also
supporting two-player cooperative play, you’re welcome to bring a friend
and enjoy taking on the evil Spider together.
