What can I say...  except, I love this game.  One of the few platform action
games that I can pick up and play over and over again.  Sometimes I just
turn it on long enough to blaze though the first level(s) simply because I
love the versatility of Ninja Master Shinobi.  One of my favorite parts of
this game is that Shinobi is basicly a walking weapon.  There have been days
that I wanted to record my progress in Shinobi and show it to people simply
because it looked very cool.  I could basicly blaze through the first few
levels very fast and make it look very cool.  I take every oppertunity to
do any cool moves that I can, trying to play Shinobi like the Ninja Master
he is.  And for those of you who might be thinking I'm probably one of the
better gaming guru's, DONT!  I'm pretty good, allright, but minor leauge
compared to other people I've seen, and I'll be the first to tell you that,

Okay, this game probably didn't need a move list, but I simply enjoy the
game so much I couldn't resist.  Becides, not everyone knows exactly what
Shinobi can do in this version of the game, right?  So basicly, just think
of this as a quick referance to the skills your Ninja Master has available.

<needless explination>
Might as well tell you exactly why I like this game...  if you actually
read this, I thank you very much and hope that I might actually hear from
you.  Anyway, here it goes...  Shinobi has a limited number of Shurikens
that allow him to kill at a distance, but if you play it right it won't be
the way you kill most of your opponents.  Moves like the Jump Kick and the
Dashing Sword (which lets you go through projectiles while you're jumping
into the swing) let you take out your opponents in more creative ways and
it doesn't cost you any ammo at all.  You can basicly dash through entire
levels with just these two attacks and all you'll really need is timing.
Not only that, but you've also got Ninjitsu wich really helps out alot.
I suppose I just can't explaine it, but being able to jump up off a rope,
bounce off a wall, then dash sword open a box containing a 1up just makes
me feel good.  It looks so seemless, none of Shinobi's moves look "forced"
on him.  I suppose the only other way I can put it is that Shinobi has
special moves that aren't overly "Special" (i.e. Shinobi has yet to fire
energy bolts from his hands, mind you, I have NOTHING against Ryu and Ken
^_^)  Becides, how many Ninjas do you know who ride horseback and on Jet
Powered Surf boards?  hehe.  Well I won't bother you anymore with my endless
ranting and bothersome explinations.  On now to the FAQ and thank you very
very much if you did bother to read this.

PS>  The above 'needless explination' is an HTML coding joke.
       So I'm not very funny.  =Þ
