- Last ninja, the -

This is it, probably THE game that inspired me to create this website.
I remember back when I got my first computer, a Commodore 64, and when I got a hold of the last ninja I was instantly hooked. After many years I was able to play this game again using an emulator and I thought 'wouldn't it be great if I was able to play all those old games again'.
Eventually it would lead to the making of the house of games :) .

In this game you play as the sole surviving member of your ninja clan, the rest of whom have been assasinated by the evil shogun Kunitoki. Now you have taken it upon yourself to avenge your clan by taking out Kunitoki and all his evil henchmen.
You start the game without any weapons but soon enough you'll find a sword and/or nunchakas to take care of those nasty henchmen. Along the way you'll find items that will help you in your quest but be thorough because if you miss some items you won't be able to complete some of the later levels. Luckily most items flash when you enter the screen however later on you will have to find some things that are hidden away inside an item (hint!).
There are six levels in total some of which are quite challenging because in some of the levels require you to do some precise jumping and if you fail you go down to a watery grave (yup that's right, this killer ninja can't swim). If you lose all your lives you will have to restart from the start of that level. Each level brings you closer to the castle of the shogun and eventually to the final battle with the shogun himself.

The C64 and Amiga remix versions have music ingame and while loading a level but there are no sound effects. Each level has a different tune and most are very good.
The other versions have no music at all and only some standard combat sound effects, the Apple version has some really cheesy ones like a cheap martial arts movie.

The best version of this game has to be the C64 one, it is the best combination of graphics, music and gameplay. The controls and gameplay of this version are somehow better than any of the others (this is probably because it was the favorite system of the developers System 3).
If you like you can check out the others but I can recommend the C64 version.

Overal rating: 9.5/10

This game was released for many different systems here are some notes:
Apple Released in 1989.
Game has been tested and completed with the ActiveGSapp Apple2gs emulator.
Only has music on the title screen and some really cheesy sound effects.
If you use a joystick with this version it has very good controls as well.
Amiga Released in ?.
Game has been tested and completed with winUAE v0.9.91.
This is actually the last ninja remix, the original was never released for the amiga but this one has all the original music and updated graphics. Too bad the controls are a bit lacking compared to the original.
Atari ST This game was never released for the Atari ST but it was near completed.
Game has been tested but not completed with SainT v1.10.
As this game was not finished the music comes from another System 3 game called International Karate and also the controls seem weird because you can use a joystick but you have to use the RIGHT mouse button as the fire button.
There was a last ninja remix released which is almost the same as the Amiga version.
I could not get a proper working version so I have not tested it.
BBC Micro Released in 1988.
Game has been tested but not completed with BeebEm v1.6.
This is the worst version, the graphics look really bland and the controls are not to good either. There is no music and sound except for some simple combat sounds.
C64 Released in 1987.
Game has been tested and completed with CCS64 V2.0.
The best version of this game period.
DOS Released in 1988 published by Activision.
Game has been tested but not completed on a dos machine, I could not get it to work with a windows machine.
Very unplayable, if you get hit by an enemy you will not be able to counter him before he hits you again.
