Video Game: The Ninja Warriors Again

"Holy shit, robot ninjas!"
The Happy Video Game Nerd on this game

The Ninja Warriors (also known as The Ninja Warriors Again in Japan, The Ninja Warriors: New Generation in Europe) is a side-scrolling Beat 'em Up developed by Natsume and released by Taito for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1994. It is loosely based on the 1987 Taito arcade game The Ninja Warriors, but with many changes to the play mechanics. It is set in a dystopian future where the population of an unspecified country has been oppressed by the military and Brainwashed. The leader of this nation is known as Banglar the Tyrant.

The only hope for this broken society is a small underground resistance with plans of assassinating Banglar using three androids. Development of the androids was a lengthy process and due to Banglar's forces beating them back literally to their very doorstep, The resistance had no choice but to dispatch the androids untested.

The player can pick from the strong Ninja, the balanced Kunoichi or the fast Kamaitachi. Each character has a combination of throws, ground attacks and jumping attacks. Each also has a gauge that fills up over time. Once the gauge is full, a portion of it can be used to add a stronger attack to the end of a character's ground combo or the entire gauge can be used to deal damage to every enemy on screen. If you get knocked down while the gauge is filling up, the entire gauge will be depleted.

The game features nine stages, with distinct bosses, a variety of mooks who can go off the edges of the screen even though you can't, and really cool music.
