Yacht Club Games posted new Cyber Shadow Story Trailer. What interesting about this game that it seems heavily inspired by Solbrain(A.K.A. Shatterhand) and Yami no Shigotonin Kage (A.K.A. Shadow of the Ninja / Blue Shadow). But people compare it to other games like Ninja Gaiden, Shinobi, The Messenger and so on. It means that Natsume’s games was not that popular. And I am happy to see there is some kind of revival.
I even wanted to write a review of Solbrain (A.K.A. Shatterhand), but didn’t. In short I can say that the game had amazing potential. And it was quite close to it. The main problem was in the level design. I think level design could be much better there. It’s still an amazing game for NES/Famicom. The other problem is that you can collect double combination of the Alpha and Beta boxes and get to the boss with super power. Then it’s piece of cake to beat any of the bosses. Making the bosses a bit pointless.
So it is great that someone is taking the potential of kinda unfairly forgotten games and continue developing it. Into a modern pixel art ninja platformer.
