Can't remember name of Ninja bike boy arcade game

Hello,

So here's the story: I remember watching my older brother play an arcade game that had some kind of little ninja boy as the main character. The only details I can remember are seeing a ninja kid ride in a motorcycle (like a Harley) during the game's title screen before you start playing and I think he did a flip or something off the bike, then you could start playing the game.

I know the game was a side-scroller and had decent graphics compared to older style arcade games (i.e. it looked more like Contra than it did Pacman or something old like that).

Also, I should add that I've done my best to look up every single arcade game with the name "ninja" in the title and haven't had any luck so I wouldn't be surprised if the title does NOT contain the word Ninja.

I've tried for years to remember the name of this game but can't! It was probably around late 80's - early 90's when this game came out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hi LittleBob, and welcome to RU!

I don't recognize your game, but here are the list of games with the word "ninja" in it. I know you said you don't think it is, but there is a chance it still could be.

Re: Can't remember name of Ninja bike boy arcade game

Welcome to RU LittleBob. I see you took my advice, good move. No offense to EVG but RU is just more active. That being said you should still check back there occasionally if no one here figures it out, ya never know right?

So can you think of anything else about this game? You say it's an arcade game, you're sure about that right? Was it multiplayer? Ect.

Re: Can't remember name of Ninja bike boy arcade game

Thank you both for the replies (and for the suggestion to check out RU - great forum!).

Unfortunately, I cannot remember many more details about the game. I do know it was an arcade game for sure and I'm nearly 100% positive it was 1-player only.The ninja rides in from the left side of the screen, the bike blows up or he does a flip or something like that, then you're right in the action of fighting bad guys.

I couldn't view the game through that link but I checked for a PC video on YouTube and this game does look very close to what I remember. However, I know for a fact that the ninja rode in on his bike from the left side of the screen and the video I saw shows the opposite. Would it be possible for a game to be slightly changed when played on different platforms?

I'm about 90% you've found the game I'm looking for. THANK YOU!!

Re: Can't remember name of Ninja bike boy arcade game

LittleBob that link he posted is to play the game. Are you unable to get it to work? If that's the right game you should be able to tell since that's the arcade version.
