This is the first time in years I've played this game.  Pretty proud of myself.  Fun fact:  This was the first Ninja Gaiden game I played back in 1991.  Good times.  One time I plugged the Game Genie in and was able to clear the entire roof top part of 1-1 with a single jump.   The good ol' days.

Take note of your score before you lose your last life because it doesn't come back after the Game Over screen.

Thanks for that heads up.  I was taking a picture every time I got a chance.

Killer opening and cutscenes. Wish the hit box on the spheres were a little more lenient. The continues at least help ya practice that brutal 2nd level, learning to use the wind to boost you along. I may have beaten this score by a smidge, but didn't hit screen capture in enough time (mapped it to select, so I should be faster with it). When practicing, I got to the 2nd boss, but couldn't manage a hit in. Creepy spiders tho.
