Ninja Gaiden Shadow playthrough.


This is part one of my NGS playthrough for the GB. I hope to finish this game without using save states, only in between stages, otherwise I utilize the continue function. The main purpose of these coming videos is so other people can be exposed to games they might not know existed, and hopefully expose them to some of my personal favorite games, which I stamp with the "DracXBelmont seal of approval" if it is some of my favorite games.

The description from the video:

"Ninja Gaiden Shadow is a spinoff of the Ninja Gaiden series, known as Ninja Ryūkenden GB: Matenrō Kessen (忍者龍剣伝GB 摩天楼決戦?, "Legend of the Ninja Dragon Sword GB: Skyscraper Showdown") in Japan. It was released for the Gameboy in 1991 by Tecmo, though it was developed by Natsume, who, a year earlier, released Shadow of the Ninja for the NES, and was originally planned to be a GB adaptation of Shadow of the Ninja; much like the first Mega Man was originally planned to be an Astro Boy video game and Journey to Silius was originally planned to be a Terminator adaptation.

I will be playing through the entire game, one level at a time, only using save states between videos / stages and otherwise using the game's continue function when I run out of lives.

Despite the intro cinematic, the story isn't exactly as clearly presented as it is in the NES games. It goes like this: three years before the first Ninja Gaiden, Emperor Garuda, a servant of Jaquio (the main antagonist of the NES trilogy), threatens New York City, and Ryu Hayabusa steps out of the darkness to fight back. Pretty straightforward, with the only other cinematics being the post-boss fight animations and the ending. Overall, NGS is a toned down NG game, with Ryu only being able to use the Fire Wheel Ninja Art and his sword, as well as only being able to hang onto railings much like in Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom; though he can use a grappling hook that becomes rather useful in the later stages. Despite these limitations, NGS is a pretty good game, and earns the DracXBelmont seal of approval."

Also, I apologize if this isn't allowed, and you may feel free to delete this topic if it isn't.

Re: Ninja Gaiden Shadow playthrough.

This is allowed (why wouldn't it be?) but you should've put it in the RU games section since it's on RU. We also like to post a link to the game being discussed so people can easily try it out, but that's not required of course.

Ah, I see. At least it's moved now. I'll try to remember that when I post future playthroughs!

Re: Ninja Gaiden Shadow playthrough.

Ninja Gaiden Shadow[2]Research Facility. - YouTube

Description:

"This game has some awesome music.
Anyways, this stage showcases the rising difficulty, and can be quite frustrating on your first playthrough. Once you get the general layout, and memorize where your life potions and the 1-up is, it's actually not that difficult. The only annoying thing about this stage is the boss, Kickboxer Gregory & his manager Jack, who function a lot like Frankenstein & Igor from Castlevania (NES). Keep a safe distance from Gregory, and don't worry too much about Jack, he can't hurt you, just hang onto you and slow you down, which isn't much of a hindrance. The only thing you have to worry about from the duo is when Gregory fistpumps and charges at you, usually when he's right next to one of the bars. To avoid this, either deal the killing blow or jump on the bar and jump over him. Pretty simple. Up next, Stage 3."

Re: Ninja Gaiden Shadow playthrough.

Ninja Gaiden Shadow[3]Ryu's Great Determination. - YouTube

Description:
"Ah, everybody's favorite Ninja Gaiden song.
Alas, my first death is in this video, all because I wanted to get a stupid item. This stage is where it gets a little frustrating, especially if you don't time your jumps right in the second area. All in all, the only truly difficult part in this stage is the spike corridor. Unless you have the reflexes of an actual ninja, DO NOT, and I repeat, DO NOT try to get that item. You will be crushed by the spikes once you get to the end and you will lose a life. I guess it was a good thing I got the extra life in the last stage. The boss, Former Colonel Allen, is perhaps the easiest boss in the game. Unless you make mistakes like I did against him, you should make it through him no problem. He only has two attacks, firing upwards, and firing downwards while charging, which is the attack you need to watch out for. It doesn't exactly follow the path you'd expect, as it continues on forward a little bit after it's done firing. Basic strategy: grab the pipe above, wait until he aims up, jump down, slash two or three times, repeat."

Ninja Gaiden Shadow[4]Docks. - YouTube

Description:
"This stage is oddly pretty short. I think the game makes up for it, though, in the difficulty. It's not too terribly difficult, though there are some parts where I mess up and end up almost losing a life, namely in the boss fight against Japanese Nobleman Fukusai. He's pretty easy, honestly, with a simple pattern. I don't know about the rest of the fight, but for me, he only did the shuriken throwing attack once or twice at the beginning of the fight; afterwards he relied on throwing his fan. Easy to dodge, once he throws it, just duck, and then jump over it when it comes back. Pretty simple boss fight."

Ninja Gaiden Shadow[5]Final Ascension - YouTube

Description:
"Last stage. Difficult, but not -too- difficult. The only thing of annoyance are the last bots which, as you can see, gave me quite a bit of trouble. This was about my fifteenth take on recording this video without dying fifteen times in a row on the last elevator ride. Pretty simple stage, with an even simpler final boss. Garuda, the big bad, is a chump. By the time you get to the top of the elevator, you should have full Fire Art stock, which will help immensely in the second form. For the first part, avoid his bolts by jumping, but NOT by running left / right. Ryu is too slow and will most likely get hit by the bolt. Thankfully, all attacks deal one square of damage, so if you get hit, don't freak out and stop playing. The second form is what you have to worry about, mostly him trapping you in the corner as he tosses his little energy blasts at you. Duck, then jump. Right when he transforms, though, immediately toss all your Fire Arts at him. With enough patience and careful reflexes, you'll beat him.

Congraturations! You've beaten Ninja Gaiden Shadow. Or, well, watched me beat the game. I only died once, and that was live footage, you all saw it! Thanks for watching, whoever kept up with it through the four or five days I went through it. Here's to hoping you'll be back for my Let's Plays!

Until next time, Vale.
- DracXBelmont"
