This week’s Arcade Archives unlock from Hamster is a real vintage, coming from a decade the place you had ninjas on your video games, otherwise you had nothin’, Taito’s The Legend of Kage is to be had now on Nintendo Transfer.

Launched in arcades in 1985, earlier than making the bounce to house computer systems quickly after, The Legend of Kage is a high-speed motion journey which sees avid gamers guiding the titular ninja on a quest to rescue the shogun’s daughter – the honest Princess Kiri – from a villainous warlord and his forces.

Gameplay switches between horizontally and vertically scrolling phases, as Kage fends of assault from all instructions from the warlord’s underlings. Avid gamers will fight thru a wooded area, a river, and the outside and inner of a castle, earlier than the overall showdown with Kuyigusa, and his bodyguard Riko.
