The Last Ninja by GAVade The Last Ninja by GAVade
The Last Ninja

They certainly don't make games like this anymore :(
This game without a shadow of a doubt is the crème of my nostalgic memories in early gaming...

The 8-bit tunes still haunt me, the soundtrack of The Last Ninja is mindbogglingly awesome. I played this game so much over the years I can still hear the amazing tunes in my head!

Ben Daglish was a composer of so many amazing tunes back in the day, thank you Ben!

This game is older than most of you on here so check out the funky music and graphics:

Last Ninja Theme remixed by Ben himself:

I still have this game in cassette format on the Commodore 64 which still works, unlike a certain 360 ;)

Now THAT is gaming!

I was a Speccy user so I only got to play this on my mates C64. I couldn't control it for toffee but he could zip through the whole game no bother.
BTW it's being remade for the PC called 'The Final Ninja'. Some screenshots are out there and it's looking good.

My friend had a Spectrum, haha I love the way the colours used to bleed around into other objects and characters, most awesome days!

I just looked The Final Ninja up, wow thanks for letting me know about this conversion gem looks real good!

Sweet, the 8/16 bit era of games definitely ruled hard!
