Need Help Remembering a Game

This topic is where you can post a description of a game which you can't remember the title of, but know the basics such as the way you move around, what kind of game it is, what system it's for, etc.

For example I need help with the title of game:
It's a ninja-game. It's for either the NES or SNES. two player game, players were red or blue depending which controller they had. World map was bird's eye, moving up, down, left, right, and battle screen was a sidescroller. Could fight your teammate by being in a battle screen. Could use techniques where you could fly on a dragon and get attack power ups.

If you know what game this is, please say so!

And if you need help rememering a title of a game, post your description of it.

Re: Need Help Remembering a Game

Little Ninja Brothers seems REALLY close on the world map and start menu I remember, but nothing close when it comes to the battle screen.

Maybe you're confusing one or more games. How about Legend of Kage?

It's not Legend of Kage.

And no, I'm not mixing two games together in my memory. The guy I played it with only had two games, one featured Mickey Mouse riding a giant tomato.

Re: Need Help Remembering a Game

So if this isn't responded to on attempt number 3, I'll assume I'm a retard and that it's definitely wrong.

But have you checked Shadow of the Ninja? It has a red ninja and a blue one, and sounds pretty similar to what you're talking about.

Sorry to keep posting; I just haven't seen anybody shoot it down yet.

The videos of Shadow of the Ninja are not it. SotN seems more for teens. The game I remember is for kids by the way the characters looked like.

No...

All the Ninja Bros games aren't matching with the battle screen i remember.
The battle screen was completley 2D, you could only jump, duck, and run right or left. Not like ninja bros where you move farther away or closer adn running left and right. Also, there were tree branches in the battle which could be jumped on.
