Ben Daglish was a genius, incredible how he squeezed those sounds from the SID chip.

Those fucking jumps across the river using a clonky fixed forced perspective. One pixel out? Dead.

Interesting fact, fact fans. It was actually a manufacturing defect and bugs which composers learned how to exploit that led to some of the SID chip's most memorable early triumphs. Commodore 'fixed' this later on, which is why the later revisions of the C64 don't sound as good.

Which version?
We had the BBC Micro one, so anything that isn't four colour mode 5 is just not going to be the same.

Have the music yes - however expect people to get frustrated by the game (also if your going C64 then you will need the keyboard to use items)

If people are really going to play it then for the water parts the main thing to be aware of is
If your standing and have not fallen into the water then pressing the button (with nothing else) will make you take an attack stance (and you cannot fall from this even if your feet are then in the water) so you walk to an edge and then press the button to prepare yourself to jump
While standing like this holding the button and pushing up performs a long jump / pushing right performs a short jump - I'm pretty sure you can do all of the stepping stone parts with just those two *DONT* just walk up to the edge and jump thinking you'll make it - take each one as a short set of jumps - you can edge forward by moving the joystick slightly in the right direction and then pressing the button to get your stance again.

I don't think I've ever played the Last Ninja you know. The C64 kind of passed me by back in the day.

I think I'll rectify that today.

I had The Last Ninja 2 on the speccy, including the free ninja mask and plastic shuriken. Although I spent more time playing with the shuriken than the game.

We got the last ninja 3 on the amiga with something

My defining memory of it is running off cliffs backwards because the controls were not good.

Turns out I've been getting Last Ninja mixed up with Last Samurai. I had the latter on Amiga and it was dog shit.

Do you mean the First Samurai? I don't remember a last samurai although, it does sound like it should be a game.

Anyway, the first samurai was ace!

He was in loads of stuff. My mother knew who he was.

Very sad. I loved him in TWD. Apparently he was filming flashback episodes just before he died too.
