Last Ninja Remix Longplay (Amiga) [50 FPS]

Developed by Eclipse Software Design and published by System 3 in 1990
The Last Ninja series on the Commodore 64 was nothing short of legendary; if you were into games during the 1980s then I can’t see how you could NOT have heard of them.
As is the way, various studios converted the Last Ninja games to the Amiga computer, with varying degrees of success. Although a lot of people would argue that they were never as good as the C64 versions, I believe that, in Last Ninja Remix, we have the exception to the rule.
Firstly, this is not the same as Last Ninja Remix that featured on the C64 (Last Ninja 2 with a new music score). Last Ninja Remix for the Amiga is actually the original game, but designed to take advantage of the Amiga’s superior graphics and sound capabilities.
The graphics and gameplay made the transition well in this version, but it’s the music that really steals the show here. Jochen Hippel took the original, brilliant score by Ben Daglish and Anthony Lees and gave us a superb Amiga version of all the classic tunes; The Wilderness (level 02) sounds particularly amazing on a decent set of speakers!
The game has it’s faults for sure. The jumping sections are really hard and there isn’t much depth to the combat, but even with faults, the game is still a classic.
So, sit back and crank the volume up to 11 and enjoy!!
