(Kaze Kiri - Ninja Action)
Kaze Kiri is a side-scrolling ninja action game by Naxat Soft. The game takes place in Feudal Japan where the kingdom princess Shizuhime is abducted by a group of mysterious ninjas. A feared swordsman called Kaze Kiri, hero of the game, is given the task to rescue the poor girl and restore order. Our ninja can can use a broad variety of fightings skills - he can run, jump, dash and slash without mercy anyone who gets in his way. His primary weapon is a Katana sword but he can also use deadly Kunai daggers to take out his enemies from afar. His ninja skills also allow him to use tricks and disappear for a short amount of time or to regain health by standing still. Kaze Kiri is a beat'm up at heart and each stage is pretty much a straight line to the boss without platforms to jump on nor land obstacles to overcome. The game is composed of nineteen sub-stages and follows a traditional beat'm up structure where every single enemy needs to be eliminated to proceed. A bar at the top of the screen shows how many enemies are still around and helps the player achieve his mission.
