Characters

Red Ninja

Special Technique: None

Ninjutsu: Teleports to the beginning of the level.

Blue Ninja

Main Weapon: Mid range strike with Manriki-Kusari.

Special Technique: Use the chain to swing from grappling points.

Ninjutsu: Tatsumaki. Turns into a whirlwind and can fly around the screen. Can be used to reach high up places.

Yellow Ninja

Main Weapon: A large shuriken with sharp edges that can return to user after throwing. (Seems like a bad idea)

Special Technique: Walk over Water

Ninjutsu: Ikazuchi. Creates a shield of lightning around the user that will protect him for a set amount of time.

Pink Ninja

Special Technique: Walk on ceilings.

Ninjutsu: Flash. Illuminates dark areas until the area is cleared.

Green Ninja

Main Weapon: Small Shurikens. Weak power but longest range.

Special Technique: Double jump. While double jumping, pressing the attack button fires shurikens towards to front.
