   Ninja Gaiden is a platforming action game released by Tecmo for the NES in 1989. A young ninja by the name of Ryu sets out in search of the man who defeated his father in a duel and uncovers a nefarious plot in the process. Six stages filled with obstacles and enemies await Ryu on his adventure. Players must make their way through each stage and defeat the boss at the end in order to progress through the game. Ryu can run, jump, grab onto walls, and hack away at enemies with his sword as well as use powerful Ninpo techniques like the Fire Wheel to blow bad guys away. Players will also find powerups hidden in candles and other decorations to help them through the game. Ninja Gaiden’s story unfolds through roughly twenty minutes of cutscenes that are displayed between stages.
