Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master is a high class platformer with amazing graphics and sound. You control the ninja Musashi, who in this update has many new moves and abilities. He begins the game armed with 0 shurikens, but apparently someone felt the need to leave some conveniently in his way to use.

This run is a 36.83 second improvement to the predecessor movie and it features lots of entertaining tricks and time-saving glitches. See the authors' notes for a detailed overview.

Shinobi 3: Return of the Ninja Master is the last game in the Genesis Shinobi series, going back to the formula found in the first game after a fairly experimental second installation. The ninja, named "Joe" like many other of Japanese ancenstry, has increased his repertoire and can now run, jumpkick, scale walls, and ride horses.

This movie plays the hardest difficulty and starts with zero shurikens (although it picks some up during the run). Uses death as a shortcut is marked because Joe has the ability to sacrifice a life to damage all enemies on the screen.

Shinobi 3 is a high class platformer with amazing graphics and sound. You control the ninja Musashi, who in this update has many new moves and abilities. He begins the game armed with 0 shurikens, but apparently someone felt the need to leave some conveniently in his way to use.

The author shows an extremely entertaining route featuring abuse of the Jump kick move, using wallkicks to fly up sheer cliffs, and even sacrificing lives to smash bosses.

During autoscroll sections Dammit is sure to entertain you by insulting the inept hordes of enemies, insulting the Genesis hardware itself in one special palette error case, and pulling some disappearing acts crazy enough to be worthy of a Ninja. He also made 2 minutes and 45 seconds of the previous run disappear in a cloud of smoke.

Crash at 42795. Basically the game cannot handle all the sprites and then just hard resets.
