●Simple rules and flashy ninja skills!
Basic controls are movement, attack, and jumping.
The stage is cleared by defeating all the yokai that keep coming.
There is a health gauge on both the player and yokai and once the player loses their health, the game is over.
Use your shifty Ninja skills by jumping and attacking your yokai.
Destroy all enemies to clear the stage.
Attack the enemy's footing or destroy enemies to pick up powerup items such as Invisible Potions or the Minecart, which will allow the player to plow through enemies.
Activate ninjutsu action through collecting scrolls - such as flood and fire ninjutsu.
Then, Ninpo Gama Pakkun will trigger fever time. You can swallow stunned enemies with Gama Pakkun.
The well-known "Gamapackun" also makes an appearance!
