Snappy Fridays – Gaming Nostalgia

NinjaGaiden_1990

Ah, Ninja Gaiden and it’s awesome 16 colour CGA graphics!

Does anyone remember when computer and console games used to be just plain frustrating, but fun to play at the same time?  Ninja Gaiden used to be one of those!

Released in 1990 by Tecmo, this game followed the “classic” formula used for games in the late 80’s and early 90’s: You control the hero, the screen scrolls from right to left introducing typical but increasingly hard to defeat/knock down enemies, followed by a (near impossible to beat down) boss at the end of the “level”. Repeat.
