Ninja Combat (c) 1990 Alpha Denshi.

The ninja castle must be invaded! After you defeat certain boss enemies, they become playable characters as well!


SNK Neo-Geo MVS hardware

Game ID : [Model NGM-009]

Main CPU : 68000 (@ 12 Mhz)

Sound CPU : Z80 (@ 4 Mhz)

Sound Chips : YM2610 (@ 8 Mhz)

Players : 2

Control : 8-way joystick

Buttons : 3

=> [A] Attack/Super Attack, [B] Jump, [C] Special


Released in July 1990.


By holding the A button until the attack gauge reaches full and then releasing it, you can unleash a burst of magical energy that can affect many of the enemies on screen. However, this has an effect similar to what happens in Final Fight: when you use this power, it decreases some of your life gauge.

By pressing the C button and then the A button, you can perform a special somersault attack that can be used to knock down a couple enemies in a row.

Only the main 2 players, Joe and Hayabusa, can pick up special weapons like swords, hachets and maces. The other 3 players (Musashi, Kagerow, and Gembu), who become selectable after appearing as sub-bosses, do not. To let go of a special weapon that you've picked up, press the B button.
