Ninja Massacre

I haven't seen the inlay for this one but no doubt it'll say something like "'The greatest Gauntlet-type game since the Jurassic Age,' says previously unknown cousin Archibald Darling".

In fact, it's a very low grade Gauntlet rip-off, with features unashamedly nicked from most of the cleverer variations on that game Eagle's Nest and so on. It's perfectly well programmed, but then it would be, as it's been done 3,450,000 times before.

Utterly wretched.
