|Title: Legend of the Mystical Ninja (2nd review)
Rom Player: ZSNES
Synopsis: Because a certain person wrote a crap review for this most excellent game, I decided to make a better one for you all (Editorís note: my review wasnít that good, but I would hardly call this one better.). This game is basically about two ninja dudes roaming about ancient Japan, saving beautiful women, liberating towns from evil gimps, and generally kicking ass. The dude with blue spiky hair is called Kid Ying, but his actual name is Goemon, but the dudes that translated this game for the U.S. thought that the names were too hard to pronounce for the little kidders. By the way, the weapon that Goemon uses is NOT a crack pipe! It's supposed to be a sacred weapon passed down from his ancestors (Editorís note: yeah, a sacred crack pipe). Kinda like the whip from Castlevania (Editorís note: the Vampire Killer, dum-dum), which makes sense, because both games were made by the most excellent dudes from Konami. And yes, Goemon is supposed to shoot money (or Ryo, in Japan). The other ninja dude, "Dr. Yang", is really called Ebisumaru. Yes, he does look goofy, but the Ganbare Goemon series is supposed to be a little wacky. Ebisumaru's ninja stars cost money to shoot, too, but he has to get his ammo from somewhere, people. You get to gamble in this game, which is kinda fun. You can also buy armor, sandals for jumping, and pizza for automatic restoration of health when your life goes away (It was originally a rice ball, but for the life of me, I can't figure out why they changed that.). Oh yeah, and you can get weapon upgrades in the shape of fortune dolls (those little bouncing cats.). You can get these little scrolls, too, but I'm not too sure what they're for. All in all, it's a really nifty game. Don't get the U.S. version, because it's censored, and therefore a piece of crap. Get the Japanese version, because you can see a stripper show in the game! Kick ass!
Best Cheats: This game is pretty simple, so you don't need cheats. Besides, I don't know any.
