Samurai Pizza Cats

NES Repro of the Famicom Kyatto Ninden Teyandee game. Taking place over 11 stages, at the start of each you can choose between one of the three main cats: Speedy, Guido or Polly. Apart from suit colours there’s almost no difference between, making choosing fairly redundant. In addition to standard attacks each character has a projectile attack by pushing Up and B, a bit like Ninja Gaiden. This can be powered up between three strength levels by collecting the little kanji items, and the stronger the attack the more it depletes your Ninpo meter. You start with throwing stars, next a three way attack, and then basically a power bomb. Ninpo can be topped up by collecting the scroll power-ups, while health is replenished through hearts. Re-entering a room causes all power-ups to reappear, so you’re never short. Each stage also has its own boss enemy.
