The good old days of beat-‘em-up action are back – the Ninjas have returned! In TAITO’s latest arcade action masterpiece you’ll slip into the role of one of five android ninjas and brawl your way through waves of enemy hordes in a dystopian future. Over a total of eight levels, you’ll take on the tyrant Banglar and his henchmen either alone or - for the first time in the history of the series - with a friend. So settle into a night on the couch with your friends, and reminisce about the golden era of 90s co-op game evenings you know and love. The original developers, TENGO PROJECT, have improved the audio-visuals in every respect, making an already outstanding game even better! Along with two completely new characters, the fully revised side-scrolling arcade brawler also offers fans a plethora of individual moves, new 16-bit pixel art graphics and animations, the revamped sound of TAITO’s legendary house band ZUNTATA as well as an online ranking system so that you can compare your skills to fighters from all over the world.

If you find old school side-scrolling beat ’em ups boring and repetitive in general, then The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors probably won’t persuade you into thinking otherwise. However, if you’re like me and cherish the bygone times of risking that last coin to gain distance, or adore the memories of pummelling thugs with an explosion of 2D sprites complete with ’90s coin-op sound, then you really can’t go wrong with The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors.
The fact that the digital version costs the same as the Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle (with seven included games) at $19.99 makes it less appealing, but if you need The Ninja Saviors, I suggest picking up the physical version for $29.99 on Amazon while supplies last, since it comes with collectible items like an instruction manual and a mini poster. The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors is a fun throwback to a simpler time, but the bonuses don’t make it a top five beat-em-up.
It’s a solid beat-em-up with solid gameplay that brings back some of the fun of the arcade classics like Double Dragon and Final Fight. But once you beat it, unless you absolutely have to have the best leaderboard score, you’ll hardly touch it again. If you love old school games as I do, this game isn’t a complete waste of cash for the price. The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors isn’t a bad game, just not a great one.
