Game Boy World #047: Ninja Boy (Culture Brain, 1990)

Watch on Youtube

Youtube Video Description:

Let me spin you a tale of a tragedy. A tragedy called Ninja Boy, Culture Brain's Game Boy debut. You know, in stills and even video, Ninja Boy doesn't look that bad. But when you try playing it... whew. Sadness is guaranteed for all. Poor controls, poor hit detection, insipid objectives, preposterous difficulty: These things add up to a very bad game. But rather than rant about it, I've instead broken the game down point-by-point in a proper academic critique. It's more than this busted-up wreck deserves, believe you me.
