Zen: Intergalactic Ninja Game Sample – GB
The game’s plot already goes through his upbringing and he is faced with a plea to save Earth from an alien villain known as Lord Contaminous, who is trying to destroy the planet with pollution and kill Jeremy Baker, the original holder of the “Geocrystal”, which can destroy armies of pollutants and harm Contaminous. So, as a martial arts cleaner, you’re going to save Jeremy, defeat Contaminous, and clean up crime. Cool.
The game is presented in largely typical Konami side-scrolling fair. There are five main stages with four bonus levels, the first four of which you can play in any order. Zen simply whacks enemies, slides, and shoots photon bursts to destroy enemies. You can refill your health and gain invincibility and one-ups, but there isn’t too much variety in what Zen can do, just in the enemies and boss tactics. Zen handles reasonably. The game has decent visuals and pretty cool music. It’s a pretty average Konami effort however. Enjoy.
