We have a relatively short but difficult arcade game here; Shinobi! The world record wraps this one up in almost under 13 minutes but we feel like a successful run of the game wouldn’t take longer than 20.
It’s a simple enough platformer, which is what we were looking for this time! Ranged/melee attacks based on distance to the enemy, and a screen attack once per area. You can hop from upper to lower levels and mess up the enemies a bit. There are enemies that pop out real fast and assassinate you, so you’ll have to figure out how to deal with those!
Good luck. Race on the 27th!!
