Alex Kidd in Shinobi World

Released by Sega in 1990, players once again take on the role of Alex Kidd & his adventures take him on a journey to save his kidnapped girlfriend from an evil ninja known as Hanzo. In order to save his girlfriend Alex must enter Shinobi world & utilize his martial arts & weapons skills to defeat the enemies & bosses that stand in is way…

The graphics & visuals seen in the game are bright, very colorful & vibrant. They also capture the look & feel of the original Shinobi games. The game has a very good mix of combat & exploration with lots of items to seek out & hidden areas to explore. The difficulty  increases as you progress through each level which makes for a good overall experience. The controls & mechanics are very different from that of Miracle World, but suites the overall feel of the game as the action is much more frantic… There are only four main levels in total in the game & it can be quite short but there are loads of enemies to defeat, hidden items to find & areas to explore that will keep you busy for a while.

I played this game a lot as a child. It is an excellent game that in my opinion is only bettered by the superb Miracle World, but definitely worth revisiting for any Alex Kidd fan out there…. A classic & one of the best games to ever be released of the Sega Master System…

Below is a video of game-play footage from the game…
