Earlier this year, J-OMG was first with the news that C64 class The Last Ninja was being remade for the PC. This daunting task, was being undertaken by Trevor ‘Smila’ Story and Stu Collier – makers of the Armalyte remake we reviewed back in March.
Today, I’m pleased to present the world’s first look at 5 screens from level 1 of The Final Ninja. To help refresh your memory, I’ve alternated a screenshot from the original title, with the relevant pic from the remake.
And now, on with the show…
(By the way, each of the ‘remake’ shots is zoomable. Just mouseclick on it, for a closer look.)
Oh yes, we all remember trying to jump on those #&$!($& stepping stones to cross the river.
The Buddha temples look great, don’t they?
And I really hope they include the ‘incidental’ graphics, like the storks that fly across the screen, or the dragon that pops out of the water.
Of course, if it’s been a while since you played The Last Ninja, you may have trouble remembering where the pieces above fit into the first level.
So, that’s our quick update/peek at “The FINAL Ninja”.
A big thanks Smila, for sharing these early screenshots with J-OMG’s readers.
