This old school arcade game will appeal to both retro gamers and people old enough to remember when this stuff was cutting edge, but not all gamers will see the appeal. An updated version of a 1994 SNES game (which was itself an adaptation of a 1987 arcade game), The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors is a 2D side-scrolling beat-'em-up in the vein of Double Dragon, Battletoads, and the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game. Moving ever rightwards, players have to mash those buttons to use melee weapons, researchable special attacks, and martial arts to take out a seemingly endless parade of really tough enemies. Good thing you have your choice of three robot ninjas, like Ninja, who has nunchakus and a jetpack. There's Kunoichi, who has had a pair of sais, good legs for jumping, and an electric shockwave attack. Finally, there's Kamaitachi, who's basically Kunoichi, but with scythes instead of sais.
As for what's been added to this remake, not only does this update the visuals while artistically (and intentionally) keeping them retro-inspired, it also adds a two-player co-op option as well as two new playable characters. But while fans of the original and people into retro games will have fun hacking and slashing their way through all the bad guys, gamers who are younger and don't appreciate the classics will think this is dated. It's also irritating, no matter how old you are, that you only turn the music down to low instead of completely off, which is even more annoying than having it on full-blast. Still, for those who kick it old school, and want their button mashing skills to be challenged, The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors is an old school action classic.
